Oil-Free Airfoil Bearing Turbo Blowers and Turbo Compressors
Centrifugal Air Compressors and Blowers from 3HP to 1,200HP, Air or Water Cooled
LPR Global offers high-speed centrifugal oil-free turbo blowers and fuel cell turbo compressors.
Air compressor models ranges from 3HP to 1,000HP, and covers air pressure from 0.6 kgf/cm² up to 9kgf/cm² (9 bar) with single or dual motors and multiple compression stages. We offer models with single impeller to twin and two-stage impeller series suitable for larger pressure requirements and medium to high air flow.
Turbo blowers come in single, dual, twin type, ranging from 10HP-1200HP, 176cfm ~ 29,664psi.
Micro turbo compressors with operating range of 3HP-25HP / 1.6 ~ 2.5bar are designed for fuel cell application and can be used in various industries. PM motors guarantees maximum 95x% efficiency and allows to operate in the 20,000 to 220,000 RPM.
A patented dual cooling system (air or water) lowers motor temperature up to 10 degrees Celsius compared to traditional compressors and allows efficient, low-maintenance, and compact turbo machine. The frictionless characteristic of the oil less air foil bearing guarantees durability and requires little maintenance. We offer API specification turbo compressors suited for the oil and gas and petrochemical applications.
Oil-Free Airfoil Bearing Turbo Blowers and Fuel Cell Turbo Compressors
We offer oil-free, contactless airfoil bearings that are frictionless in operation, meaning less noise and vibration, extended bearing life, and little maintenance. Normally, only air filter replacement is required once every three months (depending on the operational condition). No lubrication needed.
Our products are 100% oil free due to the application of the air foil bearing technology.

Korean leader in turbo blower technology, high speed turbo blowers are produced following ISO9001:2015, ISO14001:2015, UL Certification, CE, NRTL, ATEX, High Efficiency Equipment Certification, Certificate of Gas Leak Prevention, IECEx Certificate required for the use in potentially explosive atmospheres such as petroleum stations and oil refineries, ASME certification, ASME U, EAC standards and certifications.
Oil-Free Turbo Blower and Compressor Structure | Wastewater, Mining, Chemical, Textile, Semiconductor
Overall efficiency of high speed turbo blowers mainly depends on their design. Air flow, pressure, and speed (RPM) are affected by the impeller shape, cooling system, and internal structure of the blower.
We have accumulated a number of patens for ground-breaking design of impeller and dual motor cooling system.
Lowering the motor temperature is critical to determine blower efficiency, our dual motor cooling system features a patented two stage motor cooling system that lowers motor temperature by more than 10 degrees (C) compared to other brands. The design allows for cool air to reach stator, bearing, winding, and rotor. The heated air is exhausted outside of the enclosure.
The patented high-efficiency supersonic impeller uses both axial and radial compression and has a large diameter for maximum efficiency. It is made from high strength aluminum alloy (AL7075- T651) that processed up to 0.001mm thickness. Impeller is hard anodized for corrosion prevention and chemical resistance to perform in aggressive environments. Compressor system is designed to be directly connected to the rotor without any coupling, resulting in zero efficiency loss while maintaining structural stability and balance altogether. We also offer stainless steel and titanium impellers for higher fatigue applications.
Air flow of our turbo blowers and turbo compressors is controlled by VFD (Inverter) and the main controller. VFD allows change of the frequency rate to the desired point that the system has to operate at. This is achieved by the PLC or MICOM controller depending on the user’s preference. Available PLC options include Allen-Bradley, GE, SIEMENS, OMRON, RS-AUTO or LG. The control panel can be connected remotely to plant SCADA via Ethernet, RS485 or RS422. PLC controls the overall performance including the amount of pressure, air flow, RPM, etc. Operator can set up a specific percentage value to achieve the desired rate and air flow volume this way avoiding energy loss. Our bell-mouth flow meter can measure the flow within ± 0.5% tolerance (JIS B 8340).
No bending, no welding (NBW) airfoil bearing is part of the turbo blower design technology. With more than 150,000 on/off tests conducted, it guarantees up to 100,000 on/off tests. The bearing requires no oil supply, no oil filter, no additional cooler needed in other brand’s blowers.

Oil-Free Energy Efficient Dynamic Centrifugal Compressed Air Products
Energy efficiency and smaller carbon footprint are the primary drivers of aeration blower technology selection. Reduction of energy consumption is the deciding factor for utility system design. Operating variables such as air flow control, plant set up, and other operational settings can significantly affect cost and benefits of blower aeration systems.
This is especially important for the water and wastewater industries where energy required to produce air accounts for about 60 per cent of the total energy consumption of a wastewater treatment facility.
For applications requiring high air flow and low energy consumption, high speed turbo blower provide valuable features including wider operating range, higher efficiency, lower noise, lower vibration, lower maintenance cost, and longer life cycle.
We offer a large inventory of high speed turbo blowers and compressors with a vast range of performance levels for medium and high pressure ranges, all ready for immediate use and suitable for harsh environments.
