PDS Technologies (Pty) Ltd have supplied various local and international companies with coreless harmonic filter reactors, to name a few

  • ArcelorMittal Steel South Africa
  • Keech Furnace Technologies supplied to South Africa, Australia, Egypt and Asian market.

"These reactors use aluminum conductors" as opposed to copper, and this provided a greater surface area and longer life expectancy!

Accurate design calculation, and a proper understanding of the concepts, ensure lower harmonic losses, despite the higher natural resistivity of aluminum.

The occurrence of "Hot Spots" associated with copper conductors is

"Also minimized by use of aluminum".
