Turbopumps with hybrid bearing

What is hybrid bearing?
The combination of a ceramic ball bearing on the fore-vacuum side and a permanent magnetic radial bearing on the high vacuum side is called hybrid bearing.

This bearing technology does not require electromagnets and has a long service life with maintenance intervals of approximately 4 years. The ball bearing and the operating fluid reservoir can be replaced on site within less than 30 minutes.
