Magnetic Bearings - Clean, Efficient, Reliable Solutions for Rotating Machinery
Setting the standard for performance, size, simplicity and value.
Revolutionize the performance of your rotating machinery with efficient and reliable magnetic bearings, high-speed motors and generators from Synchrony®. Our clean, frictionless magnetic technology delivers compact, cost-effective solutions for a wide range of industrial applications.
In a day and age when environmental consciousness and sustainability are at the forefront of mechanical design, the demand for innovative products that can help owners and operators cut energy costs and improve process efficiency is becoming increasingly prominent.
Synchrony AMBs represent an efficient bearing solution for rotating equipment in a number of different industrial processes. Capable of operating in temperatures as high as 350° F and with a mean time in between failures (MTBF) of more than 80,000 hours, they provide a level of performance, reliability and sustainability that fluid film and oil-lubricated bearings simply are not capable of providing.

Permanent magnet motors have established major advantages over other types of motors. Now Dresser-Rand high-speed motors and generators with Synchrony magnetic bearings have taken the next step forward from previous generations of permanent magnet motors. These oil-less drive trains offer high-performance without a gearbox.
The NovaDrive® motors use permanent magnet rotors supported on magnetic bearings to achieve increased efficiency and high torque density. To simplify integration into a system, the control electronics for the magnetic bearings are seamlessly incorporated into the drive train, greatly reducing the field wiring. These design innovations decrease the size and complexity, improve the dynamic performance, and increase the economic value of the system.
