ELECTRO-MECANIK PLAYFORD AUTOMATIC POWER FACTOR CORRECTION SYSTEMS                                                                                  


Our standard bank units have a unique design that can be expanded whenever your plant needs increase. They are also available with de-tuned reactors to limit the effects of unwanted harmonics that distort your electrical power.





Our product is used in all types of industries with voltages of 208, 240, 480 and 600 volts. We offer two types of construction; dry type units and oil filled.

Our dry type units are also a product of choice for the commercial user because of our profitable prices. The oil filled units are preferred in the heavier industrial type of applications. The rugged design of both types is suitable for standard and de-tuned systems.

All heaters are backed by a 5 year warranty.





Controls panels consist of many combinations of Hydraulic, Pneumatic, Electric and Electronic Systems incorporating automatic or manual controls, programmable logic controllers, variable speed drives and compressors, using customer's designs, or our own.

We can manufacture using the customer design or our CAO and DAO capacities.
