LOCKING DOWN YOUR POWER CONSUMPTION

Automatic Capacitor Banks

Automatic Capacitor Banks (Power Vaults) stabilize your generators “Power Factor” from its
typical output of 50-65% to 95-98%.


INCREASE GENERATOR POWER

Save With Our Capacitor Banks

Capacitor banks eliminate the need for your generator to create this unused power and only have to generate the power that is actually required.

What is power factor?
Power factor is the ratio of actual electrical power being used versus actual electrical power available. Conventional generators without power factor correction capabilities are being affected by the AC components such as motors in your operation making your gensets work harder.

This in turn creates a scenario where your generator tries to compensate by creating more power which only compounds the efficiency issue.

Now you have a generator package that is not using 35% to 50% of the power its creating. Once a generator is coupled to a “Power Vault” this problem is eliminated through the Vaults programming ability to identify these inefficiencies – correct them — thus lowering the power consumption placed on the unit.


Now you have a generator package that is not using 35% to 50% of the power its creating. Once a generator is coupled to a “Power Vault” this problem is eliminated through the Vaults programming ability to identify these inefficiencies – correct them — thus unloading the draw placed on the unit.

Simply put, our “Power Vaults” are tuning your generator package to minimize that “Power Factor” ratio and utilize the power being created by your generator to its maximum efficiency.

Once the generator is tuned on this level you will start to see the benefits of reduced fuel consumption due to the fact the engine side of this component is not working as hard. This correlates to reduced maintenance and longer life spans on your generator, you will now have the ability to run more electrical based equipment on the same generator platform.

In the case of new plant builds you can even spec your operation with a smaller generator which will dramatically reduce your fuel savings & maintenance costs.





Capacitor banks have allowed some customers to down size their generators from 2 Megawatts to 1.5 Megawatts on each crushing plant, others have added a second cone and feed line to their plants without increasing the size of their existing generator. One customer increased their production 15% by being able to run their equipment at maximum amperage. After the installation of capacitor banks on all their crushing plants, a customer’s report shows that generator fuel consumption is down 22%.

Saving You Power!

Advantages to Capacitor Banks

With the installation of a capacitor bank and the power factor increased to 95+% the amp load on your generator can be reduced by as much as 50%.

  • Fuel saving = Money saving
  • Decreased AMP load on generator (can run more equipment if needed)
  • Increased power factor
  • Designed for crusher/wash/AS
  • Can be installed in custom enclosures for MCC Van or in a separate Pup Van (Added storage)
  • Capacitor banks have allowed many of our customers either reduce their generator size or run on a single generator
  • Reducing gen load or reducing the size of your generator leads to potentially massive fuel savings
  • As the province phases out coal powered plants, electricity rates are expected to increase substantially
  • A power vault can drastically decrease electricity charges for line powered aggregate plants
  • The more efficient we can make the power system on your plant the less you have to pay in carbon tax and/or pay in bloated electricity rates due to the climate action plan
