What is Twister Bearing?

All available Ball & Sleeve bearing technologies and their derivatives use oil to stabilize their respective bearing during rotation. Oil, naturally, evaporates and deteriorates in quality over time in any mechanical design. All of them are therefore limited in their performance to the amount of oil they contain, and differ only by the method of storing and distributing the oil within the respective bearings to maximize their performance.

Enermax has overcome this “dead-end logic” by using magnets instead of oil to stabilize the bearing. Without the friction and traction of oil-based bearings, the magnetic fields allow for stabilization without deterioration of the bearing and lack the operating noise and the well-known noise increase over time of oil-based bearings. Additionally, the lack of oil allows higher ambient temperatures and longer life time.

ENERMAX has developed and patented THREE UNIQUE features to further boost the capacity of the fans:

BATWING Blades

The double winged blades increase the air-pressure & flow, while decreasing noisy turbulences, by generating two smaller airstreams instead of a larger one as by traditional single curved blade designs.

HALO Frame

The carved (cut-out) frame ring reduces noisy turbulences in the outer rim of the blades, when air would be deflected back into them by ordinary frames.

DETACHABLE Blades

Detachable water-resistant blades for easy cleaning.
