Synchrony Inc. Enters Partnership with Gardner Denver Inc.

Jan. 28, 2011
Gardner Denver will use Synchrony high-speed motors in new blower line

Synchrony Inc. announced a new partnership that capitalizes on its award-winning magnetic bearing technology. Gardner Denver Inc., manufacturer of the Hoffman and Lamson brands of blowers, will integrate Synchrony’s high-speed motors on magnetic bearings into its new Hoffman Revolution line of high-speed aeration blowers for the water and wastewater treatment markets.

The new blower line carries the label “Powered by Synchrony” in recognition of the performance and savings through increased efficiency, reliability and control. Synchrony’s technology is an integral part of the Hoffman Revolution, with a high-speed permanent magnet motor controlled by a variable speed drive. The blowers offer flows from 2,500 to 11,000 CFM and pressures from 3 to 15 psig, while providing up to 45% energy savings from a footprint that is 50% smaller than a conventional multi-stage centrifugal blower.

Gardner Denver CEO Barry Pennypacker unveiled the Hoffman Revolution line in October 2010 at WEFTEC in New Orleans with Synchrony CEO Victor Iannello in attendance.

Gardner Denver has made a significant, multi-year commitment to Synchrony for its high-speed motors incorporated in the Hoffman Revolution blower. The new partnership demonstrates the broad applications of Synchrony’s innovations in the magnetic bearing market—improved reliability, reduced friction, minimized vibration, advanced health monitoring and diagnostics, and the elimination of the environmental disadvantages of lubricants.

“We’re excited to partner with a worldwide industry leader like Gardner Denver,” said Iannello. “Blower technologies are just one example of many applications across industrial sectors that are increasingly looking to reduce their environmental footprint with clean, efficient technology that delivers faster, stronger and smarter results.”
