Chase Power supply a broad range of capacitors for use in motor, lighting, power electronics and industrial power factor correction.
There are many types of motor capacitors including Run and Start Capacitors. These capacitors are used for the starting and running of 50Hz AC (alternating current) single-phase asynchronous motors, pumps, fans, air conditioners and washing machines. They also can be used for the no-power equalization of lamps to improve the power. Motor starting capacitors are normally used in single phase induction motors in order to increase the value of their starting torque. Available from 250V up to 500V with long life ratings up to 30,000 hours.
Plastic case capacitors: The dielectric for this range of capacitor is polypropylene while the case and cover are made of a self-healing plastic material. The main characteristics are: Low loss non inductive windings, self-healing to circuits, small size and weight, no leakage risk and safety protection.
Metallic case capacitors: These capacitors have no risk of leaking. The cases are metallic while the covers are made of self-healing plastic. These capacitors are equipped with anti-explosive safety devices and have a safety protection of P2.
Lighting Capacitors (plastic and metal case) are suitable for parallel and series power factor correction applications in both fluorescent and discharge light fittings.
Moreover plastic and metal case capacitors can be equipped with a wide range of fixing devices and termination options. Plastic case capacitors are available with overpressure safety devices.
Chase Power supply a broad range of Low Voltage and High Voltage Power Capacitors which are globally recognised with the highest quality.
High Voltage Power Capacitors
These capacitors are designed for reactive power compensation of industrial plants and electrical networks. When required voltages are higher than the rated voltage of individual capacitors, units are integrated into banks by means of series connection. Fusing is according to national safety requirements. High partial discharge inception voltage makes these capacitors suitable for installation in networks with high harmonics and transient voltages. Low temperature dependent capacitance change also makes these capacitors particularly suitable for filter circuit installations.
Types of High Voltage Capacitors include:
- Single Phase (with and without Internal Fuses)
- Three Phase (with and without Internal Fuses)
- Single Phase with two outputs (Twin Capacitors)
- Induction Heating Capacitors
Low Voltage (Three Phase) Capacitors
These capacitors are designed for use in the industrial and commercial sectors for the improvement of power quality and reduction of energy costs. Chase Power can supply dry type, cylindrical type and aluminium housing. For more information, download our datasheet.
