Reliable and safe
Dry type design
The CLMD has a dry type dielectric and thereforecannot give any risk of leakage or pollution of theenvironment.
Very low losses
Dielectric losses are less than 0.2 Watt per kvar.Total losses, including discharge resistors, are lessthan 0.5 Watt per kvar.
Long life - Self-healing
In the event of a fault developing in the dielectricof the capacitor, the metallized electrode adjacentto the fault is immediately vaporized, thus insulatingthe fault. The capacitor then continues normaloperation.
All capacitor elements within the CLMD capacitorare surrounded by vermiculite which is aninorganic, inert, fire proof and non toxic granularmaterial. In the event of any failure the vermiculiteabsorbs safely the energy produced within thecapacitor box and extinguishes any possible flames.
Unique protection system
A unique Sequential Protection System ensures thateach individual element can be disconnected fromthe circuit at the end of its life.
Easy to install - Light weight
The CLMDcapacitor is very lightweight andtherefore presents no handling difficulties duringinstallation.
The CLMD capacitor complies with therequirements of IEC 831-1 & 2. The use of robustterminals removes the risk of damage duringinstallation and reduces maintenance requirements.
Thermal equalizers are fitted to surround eachcapacitor element and provide effective heatdissipation. The CLMD capacitor is equipped withdischarge resistors.
Our ISO 9001 Quality System registration providesthe strongest assurance of our product quality.
The CLMD capacitor has a dry type dielectric andis free from liquids or other impregnating agents.It has been designed for environmentally friendly manufacturing. Our ISO 14001 certificationguarantees our commitment to the environment.
