Blower questions...

Hi all,

I have looked through search but nothing seems to come up for what I'm looking for... and the amount of information here is staggering.

Anyway I have 2 glory holes, both are pre-Katrina WetDog, one at 12" and one burner head; and one at 18" with 2 burner heads. All the burner heads look like Joppa 650s; they are painted black; but they are at least comparable to the Joppa 650 on the Big Dragon that just got the the shop. Both holes are running Eclipse mixers with manual butterfly valves right before where the blower would attach.

Using the Big Dragon blower as a starting point, it's a Dayton 1TDR6 from Grainger... Im thinking that could be the right size blower to use for the 12" hole since then interior of the furnace is comparable for the interior of the 12" hole. Now I'm kind of at a loss of how to go about finding a blower for the 18" hole since it's so much bigger than the 12".

Ovens are a bit simpler and a bit easier to figure out so any help here is greatly appreciated.

I'm still really new at the tech aspect of it all.

Thanks again,
