The partnership brings together Sulzer’s sales channels and experience in product development with Tamturbo’s ability to validate technologies in different applications.

They will collaborate on high-speed compressor technology with active magnetic bearings. The products allow for variable frequency electrical supply and advanced control technologies, with flow mechanics optimized by advanced calculation to ensure no energy is wasted.

Sulzer, a Switzerland-based company, specializes in pumping solutions and services for rotating equipment, as well as separation, mixing and application technology. The company’s HST turbo compressor uses low-pressure compression in applications such as wastewater treatment.


Tamturbo, based in Finland, manufactures high-efficiency turbo compressors that produce oil-free air to avoid contamination of the product. They typically supply three to 10 bar pressure to industrial compressed air networks.
