Application Guide

Use our knowledge and experience to guide for phase converter choice.

Find the Right Converter for Your Application Everytime.

A single to three phase converter is the most economical alternative to utility 3-phase.

A successful phase converter installation requires knowledge about how each application creates a different type of load, and how these different loads impact 3-phase converter performance.

In our 50+ years of experience, Kay Industries has replaced many other brands of failed phase converters.

We have learned that most phase converter problems occur because the manufacturer did not fully understand the application and thus failed to offer a 3-phase converter with adequate capacity.

This is a far more common problem than a defective phase converter.

Kay Industries takes a cautious approach to every client need.

We have studied most applications requirements extensively and from that have engineered the most complete line of high performance rotary 3-phase converters anywhere.
