Air compressors

Highly efficient (up to 98%), extremely compact in size and robust, the SKF permanent magnet motor is particularly well-suited for air turbo compressors and blowers. Unlike induction motors with gear boxes and mechanical bearings, the high-speed direct-drive SKF PM-motors equipped with magnetic bearings offer the following advantages:
  • unmatched efficiency at both full load and part load, over 10% above conventional solutions
  • variable speed for a wide operating range including operation close to a surge line
  • advanced monitoring capabilities of the magnetic bearing control system
  • high reliability
  • low-noise operation
  • no lubricant to process pollution, no oil disposal
