Electrical Business Owner
Having retired after 53 years in the electrical business as an owner, project manager, and estimator, I had the opportunity of exploring an amazing new electrical product. It was a power conditioning system distributed by Black Hawk Energy Saver. Amazing because of the multitude of positive changes made to the electrical system.
I compared two identical pieces of equipment with the same size motors. One had the power conditioner installed, the other without. I was able to determine the following results due to the power saver:
1. Balanced voltages across all phases.
2. A considerable reduction in amps.
3. Absolutely no power spikes.
4. Power Factor raised to 98%.
(Note: a load that causes a low power factor will draw more current than a load with a high power factor for the same amount of usable or useful power.)
5. The motor was completely cool, after hours of continuous running.
