Danfoss Extends Turbocor Compressor Training E-Lessons

Danfoss has released new online training materials for technicians working with its Turbocor oil-free compressors—further extending the support and learning resources to help users and OEMs maintain long-lasting performance.

Built in the USA and China to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 standards, Danfoss Turbocor oil-free centrifugal compressors are already bringing new levels of efficiency with more than 80,000 installations around the world.

But while the compressor’s unique magnetic bearing technology delivers high efficiency with zero performance degradation, it also requires specific service and maintenance skills to ensure long-lasting performance and service life. Danfoss has therefore developed a Turbocor support portal, which provides free, concise service advice and training. The portal is designed to help any Turbocor user or OEM engineer get the most out of Turbocor, and ensure their compressors maintain optimum performance.
