As you can imagine we get quite a few questions submitted by our website (joliettech.com & joliettech.com/blog) visitors. And as always we answer all questions. Below are just a couple questions we received this week and the answers we provided.
Q. We are a distributor in the food service industry in Atlanta, GA. We provide exhaust and supply fans ranging from 1/4 to 10 H.P., we are looking into providing Variable Frequency Drives to our customers so they can control the speed of their fans. Can you provide us with any pricing, availability, and product suggestions for our application? Thank You.
A. Thanks for contacting Joliet Technologies. Be glad to assist…
As long as the fan motors are 3-phase, the selections are numerous and drives are readily available. However, if the fan motors are single phase, I do not have a drive I can quote you. Single-phase output drives are exceedingly hard to find; I am aware of only one manufacturer, and we do not supply them because the torque output of the unit is ridiculously poor.
