APG-Neuros’ Turbo Blower technology was founded in the aerospace and defense industry where Aero Engines were used in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and in the F-16 military aviation program, making the technology tested and reliable. The core of the technology is the patented 3rd generation bump foil air bearing which is oil-free and non-contact, needing no lubricating or associated maintenance thereby resulting in lower vibration from the rotor during operation. Its proven durability and endurance has been demonstrated through 25,000 starts—equivalent to more than twenty years lifetime in a typical operation.
The turbo blowers are designed to provide up to 20,000 SCFM with a pressure which can reach 15 psig according to the capacity of the engine from 30 to 600 HP. The “Dual Core” units, NX400 to NX700 (700HP) produce 3,000 to 20,000 SCFM with two turbo blower cores operating within the same enclosure. This makes it possible to considerably reduce the space footprint compared to the conventional technologies.
