The new Aerzen Turbo G5 plus (photo) high-efficiency turbocompressor features air-foil bearings with a double coating of Teflon and graphite, which provides increased temperature resistance and a lifetime of more than 80,000 h of operation — independently from start and stop cycles. A new multilevel frequency converter technology (>55 kW) reduces the heat loss in the motor to a minimum and, consequently, improves the total efficiency significantly. Turbo G5 plus is offered for volume flows from 300 to 8,400 m3/h, and for a maximum pressure of 1,000 bars. Eight blower sizes from the small AT 25-0.8 G5 plus to the largest model AT 200-1.0 G5 plus are currently available, and five more are in preparation. — Aerzener Maschinenfabrik GmbH, Aerzen, Germany
