Magnetic Bearings and Power Conversion Systems - Innovation for Every Application

Putting Magnetic Bearing Solutions to Work.

In oil and gas, renewable energy, HVAC, and many other applications, Synchrony® magnetic bearing solutions provide reliable, high-speed operation in demanding environments. Oil-free magnetic bearing systems reduce maintenance, increase machine reliability and uptime and cut operating costs.

Find out more about why magnetic bearing solutions could be the answer for your needs, and about how magnetic bearing technology has evolved, thanks largely to Synchrony innovation.


To reduce energy consumption and eliminate potential oil contamination in chillers, HVAC profressionals are turning to Synchrony's magnetic bearings and high-speed motors, to provide lubrication-free, direct-drive permanent magnet motor solutions. Our direct drive solutions offer tremendous advantages over conventional systems.

Oil & Gas

From oil and gas production and separation, to transport and refining, lubrication-free bearings and high-speed drive trains support the energy industry, helping create highly efficient and reliable pumps, compressors and turbomachinery. Synchrony's magnetic bearing solutions offer high performance under the most demanding conditions.

Renewable & Recoverable Energy

Magnetic bearings and high-speed motors and generators are ideally suited for "green" renewable and recoverable energy applications because they reduce energy consumption and operate more cleanly and quietly.

Water & Wastewater

Magnetic bearing technology combined with variable frequency drives and permanent magnet motors, enable operating speeds up to 60,000 rpm. Energy savings are realized by reduced frictional losses, improved motor efficiency, and improved part-load efficiency of the equipment.

Aerospace & Defense

High-performance, high-speed magnetic bearings are helping designers expand the performance envelope of aeronautic and other defense systems, where precision is vital and operating conditions are challenging.

General Industry

Magnetic bearing solutions for industrial pumps, compressors, motors and blowers take many forms according to the specific application – but all offer the advantages of magnetic bearing systems: ease of use, less maintenance and greater efficiency.
