Hi-Turbine Co., Ltd. is a well-known Korea-based company in manufacturing of air suspension centrifuges, which is one of the few manufacturers with core technology of ultra-high speed suspension motors in the world. Headquartered in Cheongju City, Republic of Korea, the company is a high-tech enterprise authenticated to the level of National R & D Center in Korea.
Hi-Turbine focuses on the research and development of the state of the art technology in the world of totally oil-free air-suspension and magnetic suspension, develops the world’s first ultra-high speed air suspension motor with two-stage compression technology and the world's first air-suspension centrifugal compressor with totally oil-free, friction-free bearings - which has the cross-century significance.
In the 1990s last century, Hi-Turbine R & D personnel found that the aero turbine engine’s suspension technology is suitable for the emerging technology of friction-free bearing, and developed energy-saving and high-efficient air suspension high-speed motors. Compared with the existing conventional centrifuges, this technology can save the consumption of electricity and energy by 30% - 50%, with advantages of no lubricating oil, maintenance-free, etc., subverting the international centrifugal machinery industry as whole, thanks to many core technologies adopted such as air suspension bearing, permanent magnet (PM) high-speed motor and intelligent frequency converter, among others.
Hi-Turbine centrifuges have been used in many countries and regions in the world and in large-scale industries in Japan, the United States, Belgium, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and other countries. They are gradually eliminating the conventional centrifuges and compressors commonly used at present, and are the cutting-edge centrifuge technology of energy-saving and environmental protection in the future.
What subverted by Hi-Turbine is not just the technology ---
