48th Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia Proceedings

Featured in the 48th turbomachinery pump symposia on September 2019 Addressing High Sub-Synchronous Vibrations in a Turboexpander Equipped with Active Magnetic Bearings This paper presents the authors’ experience with a turboexpander (TEX) equipped with active magnetic bearings (AMBs) in a natural gas processing facility.

Pushing the envelope

Recent technological developments within the world of turboexpanders (TEXs) promise to make the utilisation of active magnetic bearings (AMBs) even more widespread across all gas-related industries, and to allow end-users and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies the opportunity to benefit from the competitive advantages AMBs offer.
