Consider Electrical Supply Frequency for Trim Removal Systems

When considering trim removal system to be used outside the United States, it is important to understand with what electrical frequency the blower is to operate. Typically, most manufacturing plants in the United States operate with 60 hertz electrical supply frequency. Many overseas manufacturing facilities operate with 50 hertz electrical supply frequency. Most blowers used with trim removal systems will operate at either frequency. However, their performance curves will vary depending on the frequency with which they operate. Blowers used in trim removal systems will push less volume and pressure at 50 hertz than they will at 60 hertz. This is generally only an issue when considering what model blower to use in a given application. For example, if a system uses a 5.5 horse power blower at 60 hertz for a given application, that same application may require a 10 horse power blower at 50 hertz.

If you are in the market for a trim removal system that will ultimately be used outside of the United States, make sure you and your trim removal system supplier understands the electrical frequency to properly specify system size and components to handle your application.
