It’s recommended that Power Factor Correction is serviced annually. Power Capacitors Ltd’s
engineers will complete a 56 point checklist which includes environment, loading and
suitability checks to accommodate changes in supply. They will also interrogate the relay to
determine the number of operations attributed to each capacitor.
This enables capacitors and contactors to be changed before they fail, avoiding reactive
charges and preventing additional and costly call-out visits.
Where a client has multiple sites or various manufacturers’ equipment, Power Capacitors can
save the client time and money by taking care of maintenance of all the PFC systems. One
supplier account, one site induction, one visit per site, and one invoice. Full records are
also kept of all equipment and service history.
Power Capacitors Ltd will also quote a fixed price service cost over 5 years. This means
there are no surprises when it comes to service time, and they will remind you when each
service is due. There’s no up-front cost for the contract and it’s invoiced in the normal
way after each service call.
