Power Factor Assembly Replacement

This 100kVAr Power Factor Correction unit installed at a high street supermarket had not been fully serviced since its installation in 1992 and as such we recommend an ‘End of Life’ replacement for all components.

This FS style of PFC unit built by us at PFC Engineering is still in use today, however with a more updated style. This meant that our workshop was able to build and pre-test the whole tray assembly and then one of our site engineers was able to replace the old ‘SBA Tray’ like for like.

The new SBA tray assembly consisted of all new 480V rated Frako capacitors, IMO MC32 soft switching contactors and subfusing.
