Used in products seeking high reliability, capacitor insulation tubes are best suited for use in high request electric equipment. Our popular custom capacitor insulation sleeves provide protection from electrical hazards, stabilize electricity performance and can even impact your bottom line.
Paramount Tube’s custom capacitor insulation can lower your company’s electrical costs in two ways:
- In many locations, the electrical rate includes a penalty charge for low power factor. Installation of power capacitors on the electrical distribution system within a facility makes it unnecessary for the utility to supply the reactive power required by inductive electrical equipment. The savings the utility realizes in reduced generation, transmission and distribution costs are passed on to the you as the customer in the form of lower electrical bills.
- The use of power factor correction capacitors can lower costs by increasing KVA capacity in the electrical distribution system. Installation of capacitors to furnish the non-productive current requirements of the facility makes it possible to increase the connected load by as much as 20 percent without a corresponding increase in the size of the transformers, conductors and protective devices.
