“Mag” bearing expanders utilize strong electro-magnets, special shaft materials, and sophisticated control systems to levitate and control the shaft in place of traditional oil bearings.
Mag bearing center sections are typically slightly larger than oil bearing units, but the overall footprint of the entire package is smaller. In addition, there is no possibility of oil ingress to the process or the surrounding environment. This makes them ideal for oil-sensitive applications.
We support more than 100 mag bearing machines throughout the world.
