Energy efficiency, reliability, availability and performance are essential factors for the cost-effective operation of systems in process engineering. Constantly increasing requirements make it more and more necessary to use new technologies while ensuring fault-free operation at the same time. For almost 50 years, KEBA has been offering application-specific drive solutions for turbo machines such as turbo blowers, radial compressors, and turbomolecular pumps; today, most of these systems included contactless and therefore maintenance-free magnetic bearings.

Technology leader as your partner
Their innovative solutions and their long-standing, close partnerships with KEBA have put our customers and their highly efficient, oil-free turbo systems permanently among the leading players in their industries. We understand the needs of turbo blower and radial compressor engineering, and our broad portfolio offers solutions with the perfect fit from grid to shaft end. Our industry experts provide quick, competent support, ensuring fast project planning and realization.
Efficient aeration applications
For more than 10 years, magnetic bearing drive systems made by KEBA have been playing a significant part in reducing the energy demand of many diverse applications around the globe. More than 500 turbo blowers used for wastewater aeration, yeast fermentation and air knife applications are renowned in the market for being reliable, permanently available solutions that are completely maintenance-free and oil-free.
KEBA is now offering the new LeviTurb system, the 2nd generation of this system solution, consisting of a motor, magnetic bearing, drive controller, and accessories. Without the sinusoidal filter and with even greater efficiency and power density, your centrifugal blowers become even more compact and cost-efficient in operation.
Technological progress in many areas (semiconductor production, coating, medicine, research, etc.) would be unthinkable without processes in an ultraclean vacuum. KEBA has almost 50 years of experience in the development and production of drive solutions for turbomolecular pumps that meet the most stringent requirements. Whether drive controllers for speeds up to 100,000 1/min, or drive platforms entirely based on magnetic bearings – our long-standing customers put their trust in the reliability and high availability of these systems.
Radial compressors for air and critical gases
Radial compressors - top performance through innovative technology
KEBA offers its customers magnetic bearing drive systems for refrigeration compressors, air compressors, and compressors in heat pumps. The maintenance-free magnetic bearings allow the systems to achieve top availabilities for 24/7 operation while keeping operating costs extremely low through the use of highly efficient synchronous motors. This bearing technology enables your processes to run 100% oil-free; additionally, active unbalance compensation ensures low-noise and low-vibration operation.
Gas turbines - generating energy with magnetic bearing turbo generators
In these times of scarce resources and renewable energies, decentralized solutions for energy generation and energy storage by means of turbo generators are needed in various areas, such as gas expansion, ORC, or micro gas turbines. KEBA’s solutions offer total efficiency values up to > 90 % by means of efficient permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM), top availability thanks to maintenance-free magnetic bearings (24/7 operation), and protection from media through an enclosed motor solution. Because KEBA supplies all relevant system components, you can take advantage of clearly assigned responsibilities and quick project planning.
KEBA maintains partnerships with leading universities and institutes in the field of high-speed drive engineering and magnetic bearing technology. This proximity to the world of research enables KEBA to translate new innovative technologies into mature products for the high-tech industry. Today, this means that we can help you make the most out of your machine.
