New Way Air Bearings® has always focused on expanding into new applications for our externally pressurized Porous Media™, but what about the applications where you aren’t using air at all—at least for the time being? All of our air bearings boast the capability to operate off process gases, and in this infographic, our partners at IBS Precision Engineering helped us demonstrate that our air bearings can be cycled upwards of 10 million times without air during the startup cycles in a refrigeration compressor.

The results show a remarkably resilient product even when operating in a journal bearing capacity before process gases allow for pressurization of the bearing. Download the infographic to learn more!
