Today’s industrial and commercial companies are investing more of their money into variable frequency drives (VFDs). This is because VFDs have incredible benefits: they can boost performance accuracy, promote productivity, and can even help save energy. But in order to take advantage of these benefits, it is important to protect your VFD.
VFDs cause asymmetrical currents and electrical spikes, both of which produce excessive heat within the motor. This rise in temperature can damage the insulation and also affect the performance of the surrounding components. So if this high-frequency noise created by the VFD isn’t controlled, or “choked,” it can result in costly issues, including:
- Lubrication breakdown
- Bearing fluting and frosting
- Electrical discharge machining (EDM)
- Motor bearing damage
Where CoolBLUE Inductive Absorbers Can Help
Made from a one of a kind nanocrystalline material called NANOPERM®, CoolBLUE cores absorb up to 80% of harmful currents to help increase the longevity of your motor and to maximize the equipment’s productivity. Plus, CoolBLUE inductive absorbers do not wear out over time and are constructed to offer support to any machine or any type of configuration.
