Explained: Electrolytic Motorstart Capacitors
Falcon Capacitors got a wide range of capacitors manufactured using high-end technology and premium materials. There are tons of options for you to choose from.
When it comes to quality and excellence, Falcon capacitors redefine it with its wide range of high-quality capacitors. Among many amazing and highly-efficient capacitors, one of the most common and widely used ones is electrolytic motorstart capacitors.
Why is it more common in use than regular electrolytic capacitors, and what is the difference between them? Here are answers to all your questions and curiosity.
What are Electrolytic Motorstart Capacitors?
Electrolytic motorstart capacitors are electric capacitors. They create a rotating magnetic field by altering the current to one or more windings of a single-phase alternating-current induction motor. They are commonly used in large fans, ACs, powered gates, water pumps, etc.
Electrolytic motorstart capacitors from Falcon Capacitors are manufactured with excellent quality materials. As a result, they are extremely reliable and durable.
There are three types of motorstart capacitors.
- Motor Start Capacitors
- Run Start Capacitors
- Dual Run Capacitors
Start Capacitors: These capacitors are used to increase the motor starting torque. It allows the motor to be rapidly cycled on and off. It stays in the circuit for a long time to continuously bring the motor to a predecided speed(75% of the full speed). Later they are taken out, and then the run capacitors mantain the speed of the motor and keep it running.
Run Capacitors: Some single-phase AC electric motors need run capacitors for the second-phase winding. They need it to create a magnetic field while the motor is running. Previously they were metalized paper capacitors. Now run capacitors are mostly polypropylene film capacitors.
Dual Run Capacitors: Supporting two electric motors with a fan motor as well as a compressor motor, dual run capacitors save space by combining two capacitors in one case. They come in many different sizes, depending on the capacitance.
What’s The Difference Between Electrolytic Capacitors And Non-Electrolytic Capacitors?
At Falcon Capacitors, there is a wide range of premium capacitors to choose from. But, often, people confuse one capacitor with another. They may seem similar, but each capacitor has a different purpose that can not be fulfilled by the other.
One confusion is the difference between an electrolytic capacitor and a non-electrolytic capacitor. There is a subtle difference between both. For starters, an electrolytic capacitor has polarities. Therefore, it can be connected in only a particular direction.
On the other hand, non-electrolytic capacitors can be connected from any direction. In other words, due to the electrolyte, the electrolytic capacitor is unipolar, similar to a battery. While, non-electrolytic is bi-polar, not an electrolyte, and consists of dielectric materials.
Now that you are completely informed about the electrolytic motorstart capacitor, you will make a more appropriate choice. Find the most excellently manufactured capacitors in the UAE. In order to make the right choice, the Falcon capacitor is the only and most perfect choice for you. With years of experience and the latest technology, it is surely receding technology at its base.
