A 16-year-old 15kW VACON inverter was beginning to fail intermittently on a critical AHU (Air Handing Unit) at a West Yorkshire hospital.
The onsite engineers had checked all the usual culprits for inverter overheating but to no avail. A repair may well have been an option but the downtime would cause more issues than the cost saving.
With the old drive being of a slim design an inverter of a similar footprint was required to avoid any extra downtime when moving the isolators, conduit, etc.
Westin Drives quoted an IP55 Invertek ECO HVAC drive IP55 which was available the same day from stock. Engineer Adam Daffern and apprentice Mason Seed completed the retrofit with minimal downtime.
The onsite facilities team said: “as always a 5-star service – the engineers are great with very good knowledge”.
