Shultz’s presentation will examine the design of canned magnetic bearings in a hermetically sealed motor compressor. The canning, a highly corrosion-resistant metallic lining, allows the bearings to operate directly immersed in the process gas. With the elimination of the need for shaft seals, the system’s reliability is increased, and no maintenance is required for the magnetic bearings. Specific attention will be paid to the benefits of the condition monitoring capabilities within the magnetic bearing system.
