1. MAXIMUM OPERATING ALTITUDE

Capacitors are the key component of PFC equipment. Install inferior capacitors and your PFC equipment is very likely to fail.

We only install Vishay High Specification Capacitors (also found on the Airbus A380), enabling us to guarantee trouble free performance at altitudes of 2000+ metres above sea level.

This is what can happen if you install inferior quality PFC equipment.

2. MAXIMUM OPERATING TEMPERATURE

OPP equipment is specifically designed to withstand the demands of extreme heat.

It’s the only PFC equipment that guarantees trouble free operation at temperatures in excess of 55 degrees.

3. FORCED AIR COOLING

OPP’s ventilation system guarantees trouble free operation, even in the most extreme temperatures.

Without proper cooling and ventilation, circuits overheat and it’s not uncommon for components to melt.

That’s why we install forced air ventilation on all our PFC equipment, as standard. Our larger units are fitted dual forced air systems.

4. TEMPERATURE ALARM SYSTEM

Even with all the above specification and safeguards, sometimes operating conditions can result in damage to your PFC equipment and plant.

That’s why every unit we build comes fitted with temperature alarms. Any problems and you’ll be warned ahead of time.

5. REDUCE DIESEL GENERATOR FUEL BILLS

What sets Optimised Power Products apart from other providers is our unique offering – we provide the only Power Factor Correction equipment that works with diesel generators to reduce running costs by a minimum of 10%.

Some of our units generate savings in excess of 30%.

“We used to exhaust our 600 litres diesel fuel tank in 12-13 hours of continuous use. But since the installation of OPP’s power factor correction the same tank of diesel now lasts 17 hours. This represents a saving of around 30%.”

You’ll find more information about this special feature throughout our website.

6. OUR 5 YEAR GUARANTEE

Our technology is so good that every unit we supply comes with a Full 5 Year Guarantee.

It’s unlikely that you’ll ever need it, but we give it to you so you have complete peace of mind.

OPP is the leading supplier of Power Factor Correction Equipment to companies across Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa.
