Lower Your Maintenance Costs
AMBs are virtually maintenance free. While wear in conventional bearings can limit the bearing life, either in running hours or in the number of start/stop cycles, AMBs do not experience wear. AMBs also eliminate the high maintenance costs, and subsequent downtime, associated with lubrication systems.
Moreover, AMB system intelligence provides a wealth of information on rotor forces and system stability. This information, combined with advanced control algorithms and remote connectivity, allow for equipment monitoring, diagnostics and tuning, without having a specialist on-site.
The Waukesha Magnetic Bearings Automated Commissioning function further reduces costs by putting OEMs and end users in control of their own maintenance and commissioning. The function provides a consistent, repeatable process that is faster than manual management. Specialist support is provided primarily through remote condition monitoring and comprehensive training programs.
