A thrust control system for use with a turbocompressor having gas bearings. More specifically, the system concerns an arrangement of gas bearings for use in a turbocompressor or other device where a large temperature difference between the turbine and the compressor housing could cause unacceptable performance of the turbocompressor thrust bearings if located in proximity of the turbine and compressor wheels. This danger is obviated in the system by relocating the gas thrust bearings so as to minimize the axial distance between them. This configuration a...
[ I claim:] [1.]1. A turbocompressor comprising:(a) a support having a longitudinally extending bore, generally circular in cross section at any point, said bore defining an inner surface, said support being disposed within a fluid atmosphere and including longitudinally spaced first, second, third and fourth faces, said third and fourth faces having a recess provided therein which is concentric with said bore and in fluid communication therewith, said third and fourth faces defining an intermediate chamber there between;(b) an elongated generally cylind...
