The totally oil-free Turbocor technology achieves the highest part-load efficiencies for chillers and chilled water systems (including water-, air- and evaporatively-cooled applications).
Proprietary magnetic bearings replace conventional oil-lubricated bearings, eliminating high friction losses, mechanical wear and high-maintenance oil management systems to deliver chiller energy savings of 35 per cent and more over conventional chillers while ensuring long-term reliability.
Turbocor’s one main moving part (rotor shaft and impellers) is levitated during rotation by a digitally controlled magnetic bearing system. Position sensors at each magnetic bearing provide real-time feedback to the bearing control system, 120 times each revolution, ensuring constantly centred rotation.
High-speed variable-frequency operation affords outstanding part-load efficiency, compactness and extraordinary soft-start capacity. An inlet guide vane assembly trims low-load capacity and is digitally integrated with the variable-speed control to optimize energy efficiency and compressor performance throughout the full range of load and temperature conditions.
Danfoss Turbocor Compressor
Danfoss Turbocor compressors use advanced technology to deliver high efficiency and low sound levels in a compact footprint. Industry leading performance is achieved by using oil free, magnetic bearings that provide world class efficiency and zero performance degradation over the life of the compressor. Permanent magnet motors and variable speed drives provide unmatched full and part load efficiency.
