Gardner Denver, Synchrony Set Energy Efficiency Standard
The companies integrate magnetic bearing and high-speed motor technology into smarter high-speed blowers.
Synchrony, Inc., will provide Gardner Denver Inc., manufacturer of blowers and centrifugal technology, with magnetic bearings for its new Hoffman Revolution line of high-speed aeration blowers for the water and wastewater treatment markets.
The new blower line carries the label “Powered by Synchrony” in recognition of the performance and savings through increased efficiency, reliability, and control. Synchrony’s technology is an integral part of the Hoffman Revolution, with a high-speed permanent magnet motor controlled by a variable speed drive. The blowers offer flows from 2,500–11,000 cfm and pressures from 3–15 psig, while providing up to 45 percent energy savings from a footprint that is 50 percent smaller than a conventional multi-stage centrifugal blower.
Gardner Denver has made a multi-year commitment to Synchrony for its high-speed motors incorporated in the Hoffman Revolution blower. The new partnership demonstrates the broad applications of Synchrony’s innovations in the magnetic bearing market — improved reliability, reduced friction, minimized vibration, advanced health monitoring and diagnostics, and the elimination of the environmental disadvantages of lubricants.
