Aerovox manufactures both single-phase and three-phase power factor correction capacitors up to 4,800 VAC. Our AeroPower PFC film capacitors are designed for high reliability applications, and have a life rating of over 200,000 hours. They are manufactured to withstand harmonic currents, with a special high harmonic version available.

Three types of standard reactive compensation capacitors are available:

• AMP0: Vacuum-impregnated metallized polypropylene, compact size.    
  Available in oil-filled and dry configurations. (Made in USA)
• MMP0: Vacuum-impregnated metallized polypropylene, rugged welded
  case (Made in USA)
• EPFC: Euro-style vacuum-impregnated metallized polypropylene, round 
  aluminum studded cases (Made in China)

Aerovox provides a free comprehensive Savings and Applications Guide for Power Factor Correction and Harmonic Solutions  to assist you with your PFC applications. This comprehensive application note covers power factor analysis, benefits in use, and guidance for calculating, specifying and applying power factor correction capacitors.
