New from Danfoss, the Turbocor TG490 Compressor is the first oil-free magnetic bearing compressor.
Using advanced technology, the TG490 is designed to deliver high efficiency, reduced maintenance and low sound levels in a compact footprint. Oil-free, magnetic bearings provide high efficiency and zero performance degradation over the life of the compressor. Permanent magnet motors and variable speed drives provide unmatched full and part load efficiency.
Designed for air- or water-cooled chiller applications, the Turbocor TG490 Compressor has a simplified design through the elimination of a traditional oil management system.
The Turbocor TG490 is available in low GWP refrigerant options as well as for different size models ranging from 40 to 150 tons/ 140 – 540 kW and uses next generation refrigerant HFO-1234ze.
