GAS BEARINGS

Aerostatic Bearings

Aerostatic bearings have excellent load capacity at low speeds and zero-wear start-ups. They provide high-speed stability for high radial loads and can operate complementary to aerodynamic bearings at start-up phases.

KEY ADVANTAGES

► Zero speeds (static bearings)

► High speeds (0 – 100 000 rpm)

► Low friction losses

► “Unlimited” start-stop cycle endurance

► “Unlimited” lifetime

► Various low-viscosity gasses

► High temperature resistance
