A recent study estimates that in the U.S. alone, business looses nearly $188 billion annually to power quality disturbances and outages. Some of the biggest losses are incurred by industrial companies who suffer not only lost productivity but also the cost of idled manpower, delivery penalties, and damaged or destroyed work in progress.
In semiconductor manufacturing, power quality disturbances cause the failure of tools used in both front-end and back-end processes causing both downtime and substantial financial loss. Power problems also interfere with the accurate performance of instrumentation used for wafer and device testing resulting in challenges to quality control.
In the printing industry, sophisticated, high speed presses are required for commercial printers to operate profitably on extremely narrow margins. The “make ready” process required to start running the job is usually one of the largest job expenses. But when power disturbances stop the presses, productivity plummets, paper and ink is wasted, and valuable resources are spent when “make ready” is repeated needlessly.
POWERVAR has the protection solution for these and most other industrial applications, too. Our family of power conditioning solutions includes nineteen models of three-phase conditioners for North American applications and nineteen more for international 50 Hz installations. With three-phase solutions ranging from 10 kVA to 300 kVA, there is no application so big or so demanding that it can’t be protected by POWERVAR. Call us today for a consultation.
