What is an Elephanta?


Elephanta controllerThe Elephanta® is the most powerful magnetic bearing controller in the industry and the basis for the largest, most critical turbomachinery applications,including subsea.

Recommended for machinery in the power range of 15 MW to 80 MW, the Elephanta offers 4, 5, 6 or 7 axis control configuration. The controller provides high processing performance, automated commissioning and tuning, built-in condition monitoring and remote adjustment capabilities.

The integrity of the functional testing, verification and development of new features for the controller, performed on the world’s biggest super-critical test rig, is far superior to simulation testing methods used by others.

Applications include oil & gas transportation, storage and production; petrochemical and process equipment; large-scale power generation (including nuclear); and subsea and sour gas applications with canned or sealed bearings.
