Why Purchase a Phase Converter?
Farms generally don’t have access to a three-phase power grid, which is necessary to meet the demands of most agricultural equipment. One solution is to pay the utility company to install on-site three-phase power, an incredibly expensive and time-consuming project. Another solution is to purchase a three-phase power converter that provides the same benefits without the exorbitant expense.
Common Applications of Agricultural Phase Converters
- Irrigation pumps
- Grain bucket elevators
- Submersible pumps
- Conveyor belts
- Grain mixers
- Grain conveyors
- Grain dyers
- Center pivot systems
Know Your Farm’s Equipment
Before purchasing a phase converter for agricultural use, it’s important to understand how much power your various machines require. Applications like augers, pumps and grain drying fans often have several large motors which will consume a large capacity of certain converters. If you plan on running several loads on one phase converter transformer, check with a NAPCco representative to determine which model is right for the job and whether you may need to purchase more than one.
If you’re installing a phase converter in an outdoor area, you may want to purchase a weatherproof enclosure to ensure that your phase converter is uninhibited by the elements. Although NAPCco phase converters are built tough, severe weather can potentially damage the equipment if it not enclosed in the proper enclosure.
