New line of high-speed aeration blowers

Synchrony has announced a new partnership that capitalizes on its magnetic bearing technology.  Gardner Denver will integrate Synchrony’s high-speed motors on magnetic bearings into its new Hoffman Revolution line of high-speed aeration blowers for the water and wastewater treatment markets. Synchrony’s technology is an integral part of the new aeration blowers, with a high-speed permanent magnet motor controlled by a variable speed drive. The blowers offer flows from 2,500–11,000 CFM and pressures from 3–15 psig, while providing up to 45% energy savings from a footprint that is 50% smaller than a conventional multi-stage centrifugal blower.

“This is the world’s most advanced energy management blower system,” said Brian Cunkelman, a vice president for Gardner Denver. “Our partnership with Synchrony has led to breakthroughs in increased reliability, minimal maintenance and a smaller footprint — all resulting in cost savings to the customer.”

Gardner Denver has made a significant, multi-year commitment to Synchrony for its high-speed motors incorporated in the aeration blowers. The new partnership demonstrates the broad applications of Synchrony’s innovations in the magnetic bearing market — improved reliability, reduced friction, minimized vibration, advanced health monitoring and diagnostics, and the elimination of the environmental disadvantages of lubricants. These advances have accelerated the use of magnetic bearings in multiple applications including highly efficient and environmentally friendly motors, generators, pumps, compressors, and fans in sectors such as HVAC, oil and gas, renewable energy, industrial gas and defense markets.
