IS IT DIFFICULT TO INSTALL?

No, it is the easiest of all types to install, comparable to installing any electric motor. A disconnect switch or magnetic starter is needed to start the converter and the single phase wiring must be adequate to handle the current of all the motors to be operated. It must be emphasized that our wiring recommendations should be carefully followed.

 

How does a rotary three Phase Converter compare with a solid three phase line?

 

A three Phase Converter is a manufactured device that comes closest to a solid three phase line. In comparison to an open delta three phase system the three Phase Converter is equal and every bit as good.

*****

Against other solid three phase systems, a three Phase Converter is merely the best substitute. Never-the-less, a solid three phase is often not economically feasible nor readily available. For short seasonal loads or small loads, it is generally impractical.

*****

The three Phase Converter cost is often just a fraction of the cost of extending a three phase line, whether a few hundred feet or many miles. Cost of operation on a single phase line is invariably less than on solid three phase. Rate costs are less, with no demand or power factor penalties.

*****

Three Phase Converter, being a rotary type, is a three- phase distribution system in which a variety of motors can be operated individually or simultaneously, just as though connected to a three phase line.

*****

As three Phase Converter is rotating, a phase shift is accomplished through a rotor spinning within an electrical field. The result is a true three phase.

*****

An Indiana power company's three year study revealed that corn was dried at less than 1/2 cent per bushel electrical cost. Their study also revealed that no single phase motor or three phase drying installation had a per bushel electric cost as low as this.
