Overview

Our maintenance department is able to provide an efficient service for power factor correction equipment nationwide, regardless of manufacturer.

Information

Frequently, when carrying out initial maintenance, we find that the existing power factor correction equipment is not fully operational, despite appearing to be so, i.e. indicator lamps are on, but the unit’s capacitors have failed. All capacitors have a finite life. When failure occurs no apparent warning is given. Most modern capacitors incorporate fail-safe protection mechanisms which quietly disconnect so failure goes undetected.

How does it affect my business

The loss of effective power factor correction is expensive because the savings it is designed to provide are irretrievably lost. In today’s competitive marketplace many companies find themselves with a much slimmer maintenance department.

Routine inspection and maintenance of power factor correction equipment is undertaken infrequently or not at all. This can result in a loss of savings and unnecessary damage to existing equipment. The business owner generally only realises that they have a failure in there PFC unit when there is a massive spike in their monthly energy bill. Don’t wait for this to happen!
