Specifying, Manufacturing, And Testing A Cryogenic Turboexpander Magnetic Bearing System.
MetadataShow full item record
The state-of-the-art magnetic bearing system, as it exists today, has several unique characteristics which tend to make certain applications of this technology more favorable than others. One application which seems quite favorable is the use of magnetic bearing systems in turboexpanders. One such project is discussed, beginning with the initial concept and ending with the rigorous testing of the finished machines. Several problem areas and the associated corrective actions are discussed.
