Title
(EN) Compressor bearing cooling
Abstract
(EN)

A compressor (22) has a housing assembly (40) with a suction port (24), a discharge port (26), and a motor compartment (60). An electric motor (42) has a stator (62) within the motor compartment and a rotor (64) within the stator. The rotor is mounted for rotation about a rotor axis (500). One or more working impellers (44) are coupled to the rotor to be driven by the rotor in at least a first condition so as to draw fluid in through the suction port and discharge the fluid from the discharge port. An inlet guide vane (IGV) array (174) is between the suction port (24) and the one or more impellers (44). One or more bearing systems (66, 68) support the rotor (64) and/or the one or more impellers (44). One or more main drain passages (120, 234 206; 120, 232, 202, 206) are coupled to the bearings to pass fluid along a drain flowpath from the bearings to a location (172) upstream of the impeller and downstream of the IGV array.
