3 Air Compressor Areas To Maintain For Extended Equipment Life
15 January 2015
When setting your price point for manufactured products, you must consider equipment replacement costs to ensure you make a profit on each sale. You can reduce your equipment replacement costs by performing maintenance on a regular schedule. Start with maintenance on the smallest pieces of equipment that tend to run down fastest, such as air compressors. After all, these compressors may run all day to power tools that activate using pressurized air.
Utilizing Harmonic Filter Technology
19 December 2013
Motors with electro-mechanical starts do not create worthwhile harmonics. When the adjustable speed drive is used to power the motor, the circuitry to drive does not take the current in a sinusoidal manner. This can affect other equipment attached to the transformer. Harmonics are currents and volts that consist of multiples of 60 Hz. The power generated cannot be used and takes up the electrical capacity of the motor. The system that has a lot of harmonics will eventually break down as a result of the defect.
