Magnetic Bearings Magnetic bearings are high tech products designed to improve the efficiency and product life of rotating mechanical parts like compressors, fans, pumps, or other motor-driven devices. Turbocor has developed a bearing system in which the rotor shaft and impellers levitate during rotation and float on a magnetic cushion. Bearing sensors feed back real-time information to digitally controlled bearings. Centered rotation is instantaneously self-corrected and maintained with the shaft being repositioned 6 million times a minute.
Electromagnets maintain clearance between the rotating shaft and the bearings, so there is no lubricating oil. In the case of a power failure, a patented control scheme turns the motor into a generator and when coupled with onboard capacitors will allow for a normal shutdown of the compressor. The Turbocor model TT300 is the world's first totally oil-free compressor specifically designed for the Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration industry.
