Patent No. US 7,348,686 B2
Buoyancy belts™ and their respective reservoirs offset some of the effects of gravity, while simultaneously reducing the vibration associated with the rotors found in electric generators and turbines. The use of special coatings, such as those used on ocean-going vessels, enhances the buoyancy effect.
The bearings are relegated to being place holders, instead of load bearing members, thus increasing efficiency and reducing maintenance costs.
