New Plant Construction
When it comes to determining the most economic means of distributing electricity to your plant, using first cost as your buying criteria is not a rational choice. Your electrical distribution system has a life cycle of twenty-five to forty years; first cost is only a fraction of the life cycle cost. Standard transformers can waste two and a half times more electricity than Powersmiths super-efficient transformers. In two or three years Powersmiths energy savings make up the incremental cost differential and go on to deliver 22 – 37 additional years of energy savings. As electrical costs continue to rise, can you afford to install a wasteful system?
Retrofit to Lower Operating Costs and Increase Reliability
During the eighties and nineties production equipment became increasingly more electronic. This combined with the addition of computers and other electronic equipment for the front office, altered the characteristics of your electrical load. Transformers built in the past were not designed to meet the needs of today. This incompatibility can result in costly downtime and premature equipment breakdown.
Powersmiths pioneered the production of power quality-correcting transformers. Today our super-efficient quality-correcting transformers reduce electrical waste; protect your equipment form electronic distortion, and increase the reliability of your electrical system. We also provide innovative products to protect your system from lightning, transients and temporary over-voltages that can cause equipment failure.
