Air Cycle Technology
Reduced power consumption up to
30%
A key technological feature is that the turbo expander and compressor are located on the same shaft. The energy produced during the expansion process is transferred through the shaft to the compressor, which allows to reduce energy consumption up to 30% compared to vapor compression systems.
Air Bearings
Our air bearing system eliminates the need for complex oil management systems and makes our machines more reliable and maintenance-free.

When the shaft is spinning fast enough it starts to float on the air cushion created by the increased air pressure from its spinning.
