What is Power Factor?

Power Factor is how efficiently your components (motors) are using the power created by your generator, typically most plant generators run between 50-65% power factor.

Where can these be installed and who uses them?

We can install these units in portable vans, trailers or stationary plants. Cap Banks are generally used in the aggregate and industrial settings.  Cap Banks can be used in any industry where a LOW power factor is present ie: manufacturing, mobile crushing plants, oil & gas rigs and factory’s.

Do you have results to show these power factor savings?

How does it benefit my operations?

Apart from the saving in power and fuel reduction, Cap Banks allow more USABLE power which you can then upgrade your plant without increasing your generator.  Another huge benefit of high-line plant – it will eliminate any low power factor fees.
