Case Studies
  • HSR turbocompressor for truly oil-free air
    A leading European food company has been manufacturing and selling various types of high-quality pork, beef, poultry and lamb products. A few years back, the production processes of the client were improved by the installation of a high-speed turbocompressor in one of the meat factories. It delivers 100% oil-free compressed air for the distribution network.

  • Magnetic vs. air foil bearings
    The turbocompressor has become a mainstay of modern water treatment technology, offering a mechanically simple design, reliability and good energy efficiency. Ideally suited for the production of large volumes of compressed air at relatively low pressure, they rely on bearings that can spin at high speeds with minimal resistance and for extended periods. Today, the market is dominated by two rival technologies: air foil bearings and active magnetic bearings.
