|20140208788||CENTRIFUGAL COMPRESSOR WITH EXTENDED OPERATING RANGE - This disclosure relates to a centrifugal compressor. In a first example, the compressor includes a first impeller provided in a main refrigerant flow path, a second impeller provided in the main refrigerant flow path downstream of the first impeller, and a recirculation flow path. In the first example, the recirculation flow path is provided between a first location and a second location along the main refrigerant flow path. The first location is downstream of the second location, and the second location is downstream of the first impeller. In a second example, the compressor includes an impeller provided in a main refrigerant flow path, and a recirculation flow path provided between a first location and a second location along the main refrigerant flow path. In the second example, the recirculation flow path includes a recirculation volute. Further disclosed is a method for operating a centrifugal compressor.||07-31-2014|
|20130039786||REFRIGERANT COMPRESSOR MAGNETIC BEARING - A magnetic bearing assembly includes a lamination stack with coil apertures extending between opposing sides. A continuous unitary insulation layer is overmoulded onto the opposing sides and within the coil apertures providing a coil aperture lining. The insulation layer includes a wall within the coil aperture adjoining coil aperture lining and bisecting the coil aperture into first and second openings. A coil portion is disposed in each of the first and second openings and electrically isolated from one another by the wall. The magnetic bearing assembly is arranged in a refrigerant compressor that includes an electric motor rotationally configured to rotationally drive an impeller via a shaft. A controller is in communication with the magnetic bearing and configured to energize the coils and provide a magnetic field rotationally supporting the shaft.||02-14-2013|
