Switching to LED lights, installing solar PV, or installing variable speed drives onto your motors can positively affect your power factor. However, the most effective way to make long-term changes to your energy efficiency is by installing Power Factor Correction (PFC) equipment.
But when it comes to PFC solutions, one size doesn’t fit all. Each business has different power needs, so a solution must be created based on their specific requirements. However, there is one thing that should always remain the same – the quality of the equipment.
The importance of quality
When investing in a PFC solution, you want to know that your equipment is safe, compliant and built to last from durable components. The wrong unit for the job is possibly worse than none at all.
Throughout our time in the industry, we’ve unfortunately seen many operators just buying and selling these units without any skill or experience.
That’s why, when we first learned of the increased demand for PFC units in Australia, we took the time to learn and understood the ins and outs of these products. We explored the various pitfalls associated with incorrect installation or servicing before we offered them to our customers.
The Quality Energy way
Quality Energy low and high voltage PFC units are designed and manufactured right here in Australia by our team of experienced electrical engineers. Each system is custom made to meet the needs of each client using premium European components. We even encourage our clients to witness test the FAT in our Melbourne facility to ensure a smooth handover.
Why do we do things this way? Because it allows us to maintain a high standard of quality and maximise equipment life expectancy. It also enables us to conduct extensive Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) to our standard test sheets or customised to the clients testing regime.
In addition, a PFC system should not be something that you install and forget. Regular checks of system performance and integrity should be part of your maintenance regimen to avoid nasty surprises. We do just that here at Quality Energy, too.
