The new 'Turbomiser' uses a new type of compressor based on virtually frictionless magnetic bearings. When combined with high efficiency EC fans and its onboard intelligent control system, it is said the chiller can more than halve the energy costs associated with conventional chillers.
This four-volume set collects peer-reviewed proceedings from a June 2012 conference, reporting on the latest research and applications in renewable and sustainable energy.Volume 1 contains sections on development and use of solar, biomass, and wind energy, in areas such as biohydrogen production using anaerobic fermentation at various pH values, wind turbines with magnetic bearings, and offshore wind power generation.
Other bearing units on show will include INSOCOAT insulated bearings, providing protection from stray electric currents; mud motor bearings, designed to resist severe axial and shock loads, with a unique multi-row construction that ensures long trouble-free operating life; and magnetic bearings for electrically driven compressors, delivering a compact, almost friction-less solution that reduces maintenance, noise and the risk of gas leaks.
This pump offers the advanced technology of magnetic bearings for medium sized applications.
Using magnetic bearings, it levitates and stabilizes its direct drive centrifugal compression assembly while spinning its impellers at up to 60,000 revolutions per minute.
