The Zytec contact-free magnetic coupling is a Game Changer in rotating equipment, which unlocks hidden energy/CO2 reduction potential and costs. Installations become contact-free and yet connected, which provides the new highest level of Reliability, Safety, Sustainability & lowest TCO. This innovative technology makes it possible to save up to 50% of energy consumption and reduce up to 50% of operating costs. Applications include pumps, fans, generators, compressors and conveyors which are used in sectors such as industry (general), Water and Waste Water, Heating Ventilation Air-Conditioning (HVAC), Chemical Industry, Oil and Gas Industry, Maritime Sector, Pulp and Paper Industry and Mining.
 
The breakthrough technology provides a solution to many different problems regarding rotating equipment. Simplicity is the strength of this solution. A mechanical solution that is easily and quickly applicable in both existing (retrofit) and new installations. The Zytec magnetic coupling connects your equipment contact-free and can control the speed of your installation. The result is that fewer parts are required, making the overall installation more robust and reliable.
 

The results are often spectacular. 

  • Four Zytec couplings were installed on four pumps within two days, resulting in energy savings of 340 households (= 600 tons of CO2). This with a payback time of 1.1 years.
  • In a business critical fan, the maintenance interval has been extended from 6 months to 6 years with a Zytec coupling, vibrations have been reduced by 80%. This with a payback time of 0.8 years.
  • In the case of a fan in an explosive atmosphere (ATEX), the fluid coupling (contains maintenance and wear parts such as bearings, seals and oil) is replaced by a low-maintenance Zytec coupling (does not contain maintenance or wear parts such as bearings, seals and oil). The maintenance interval has been extended from 2 years to 20+ years. Furthermore, the safety has increased because when the fluid coupling fails the temperature melt plug melts and the oil is thrown out of the fluid coupling. This can no longer occur with a contact-free magnetic coupling.
 

The Zytec coupling provides a solution to:

  • Increase reliability
  • Improve safety
  • Reduce Total Cost of Ownership
  • Save energy and reduce CO2
  • Reduce maintenance 
  • Misalignment
  • Clean speed control (no harmonic distortion)
  • Improve power quality (prevention inexplicable errors) 
  • Reduce vibration and noise
  • Shock loads
  • Subsidence and earthquake damage control
  • Mounting deformation
  • ATEX compliance

Because of a significant energy saving and (often hidden) cost reduction, Zytec solutions will result, most of the time, in a payback period of less than two years and a yield of over 30%.

OUT-OF-THE-BOX

By thinking out-of-the-box about the new possibilities that the contact-free magnetic coupling offers, we are also again and again surprised about the problems that can now be resolved suddenly. The possibilities are endless if you connect with machines without contact. On ships it is possible to ...

ATEX COMPLIANCE

In many companies, the presence of flammable substances can not be prevented. Safe operation of technical installations in potentially explosive atmospheres are a complex matter. Currently used fixed couplings must be installed within certain limits of alignment. This required alignment is between 0 ...

OVERLOAD PROTECTION

Obstructions and/or blockades on the load side of the system happen often. For example, an unexpected event in the process by which a conveyor belt gets blocked, or the impelllor of a pump gets blocked suddenly, etc. Many different examples could be given. The consequence is that the installation ca ...

SHOCK PREVENTION

The contactless joining machines ensures that any shocks in the process (eg stones on a conveyor belt, or a stone in a pump) or are absorbed by with an external cause (eg driving, a jackhammer, explosion or an earthquake). The coupling is therefore not broken and the connected motor and pump, fan, c ...

MECHANICAL SOFT START

With the non-contact magnetic coupling, there is always a speed difference between the motor and the load side. This means there is when you start an installation with all Zytec couplings automatically you have a mechnical soft start of 1-2 seconds. The engine also does not come in harse. In combina ...

REDUCE NOISE & VIBRATIONS

All current fixed couplings have an aligment tollerance of 0.1 mm. By changes in temperature, subsidence, earthquakes, etc., the installation is often beyond its tolerances during the operation. The alignment is only known when you have just measured. You do not know what happened in the meanwhile a ...
