If you’re going to spend the time and money on getting the best rotary phase converter for your heavy-duty equipment, you might as well take small steps to maintain it. Performing regular maintenance checks is the best way to ensure that your rotary phase converter runs smoothly and lasts for years down the road. It doesn’t take much, so commit to doing it now. We promise that you’ll save precious time and money in the long run.

Take a look below to learn more about how rotary phase converters work and how to maintain them well.

How To Clean & Maintain Your Rotary Phase Converter

You should never neglect regular maintenance checks of your rotary phase converter. Maintaining your equipment throughout the year will protect it from damage, keep it clean, and lengthen its lifespan. Follow our four-step maintenance process to protect the life of your rotary phase converter.

  1. Remove any dust or debris from the idler. The idler—also known as the generator—helps power the rotary phase converter. Any dust or debris buildup can cause the generator to overheat, and overheating can cause breakdowns. This is the last thing you want.
  2. Make sure all the controls on the control panel are working well. These components make it possible for the rotary phase converter to turn on and off.
  3. Check the conductive wiring in your phase converter to make sure it’s secure and functioning properly. If any wires are loose, tighten them. If any wires are broken, you will need to replace them with new ones.
  4. Clean your system’s air filters every few months, and replace them at least once annually. When dust and dirt collect in the air filters, air can’t pass through them as efficiently. Inefficient airflow will cause the rotary phase converter to function more slowly and produce less power.

How Rotary Phase Converters Work

Have you ever found yourself working on a heavy-duty project that requires more power than what your single-phase system can provide? A rotary phase converter may be a perfect solution to your problem. Rotary phase converters transform single-phase electricity from a utility supply into three-phase electricity. They’re designed for industries that need single-phase and three-phase power. In addition, phase converters are designed to provide three-phase power that is more reliable and cheaper than what utility providers offer.

Since rotary phase converters create a third line of power, the three-phase power they produce is better than what you get from a utility source. If you need power that will accommodate bigger power loads more efficiently so you can tackle every project with confidence, it’s time to invest in a rotary phase converter.
