Did you know?
- Capacitors of inferior quality can be a severe fire hazard?
- These fires are difficult to extinguish and can result in complete substations burning down
Considering all the knowledge we have about Power Factor Correction (PFC), let’s look at the equipment Alpha Power Solutions uses on their Power Factor Correction devices.
Power factor correction equipment does not generate harmonics but it can amplify existing harmonics present in a network, which will affect sensitive electronic equipment in its vicinity. It is therefore recommended that harmonic blocking reactors be fitted in series with capacitor banks when existing harmonic levels are elevated. The blocking reactors present the harmonics from reaching the capacitors and can therefore not be amplified by them.
We can service and repair any make of power factor correction equipment.
For the most reliable Power Factor Correction Unit, contact Alpha Power Solutions. Our capacitors are made out of polypropylene film which is a thin layer of aluminium sprayed with zinc alloy and they are PCB free. Should there be a breakthrough, the polypropylene film is self-healing, resulting in very limited loss of capacitance.
Alpha Power Solutions takes full responsibility of the equipment they install, and you and your organisation can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your supplier will always be available should an emergency arise. Fill in the enquiry form and we will be at your service.
