Power factor correction
26 August 2013
Energy saving specialist Marshall-Tufflex has launched a range of Power Factor Correction systems designed to reduce power bills and carbon emissions by improving the operating efficiency of electrical systems.
The units utilise high quality, reliable capacitors to improve the efficiency of the electrical supply at industrial locations through restoring power factor to as near unity as is possible by reducing the effects of reactive power on a site’s supply.
This lowers bills because energy suppliers charge for reactive power. It also reduces carbon emissions and improves the quality of power, prolonging the lifespan of equipment, helping avoid voltage drops over long cable runs and increasing the capacity of a local electricity network.
