New cryogenic drive unit with aerodynamic gas bearings

PBS Velka Bites introduces a new cryogenic drive unit. It is designed to drive various cryogenic devices, especially compressors, pumps, or circulators.

Its main advantage is the same as for other PBS cryogenic products, namely the use of aerodynamic gas bearings, which ensure many years of maintenance-free operation.

The non-contact bearings arrangement also makes it possible to achieve high operating speeds, which in the case of a cryogenic drive unit exceed 70,000 rpm. Aerodynamic bearings operate without the risk of the contamination process medium. With an actual output of 3.5 kW to 7 kW, it has a wide range of applications and can be tailored to customer requirements.

PBS has been in the cryogenic business for more than 35 years as a supplier of turboexpanders, compressors, and cryogenic pumps to major customers and prestigious research institutes, including Linde Kryotechnik, CERN, and the Max Planck Institute.
