Abstract

A non-contact support apparatus for fluid treatment of a stationary or traveling object while supporting the object without contact by fluid- cushion induced forces. The apparatus comprises substantially opposite non-contact platforms having support surfaces, each support surface comprising a plurality of basic cells each cell having a plurality of pressure outlets and a plurality of fluid-evacuation channels. Each of the pressure outlets is fluidically connected through a flow restrictor to a high-pressure fluid supply, the pressure outlets providing pressurized fluid for generating pressure induced forces, maintaining a fluid-cushion between the object and the support surface of the platform The flow restrictor characteristically exhibits fluidic return spring behavior. Each of the plurality of fluid- evacuation channels has an inlet and outlet, for locally balancing mass flow for a plurality of basic cells.
