Air-Cycle Machines

air cycle machine

MiTi® has designed and tested an Air-Cycle Machine (ACM) for advanced fighter aircraft, as well as other potential applications. The MiTi ACM operates at speed of 120,000 rpm, 20% higher than completing technology, allowing for a reduction in weight and size envelope. The machine features MiTi®’s low power loss compliant foil bearings that do not require an additional cooling feed at the thrust bearing outer diameter, as in the case of other OEM designs currently in the field. This reduced cooling flow creates greater machine efficiency and lower likelihood of bearing contaminants from dust and debris.
