What is a motor-generator set?
A motor-generator set is an electro-mechanical device used to convert electric power. It is designed to take the voltage and frequency of an incoming power source and convert it to an output power source with a different voltage and frequency. Alternatively, it can simply be used to stabilize an electric power source and provide complete line isolation.
How does a motor-generator set work?
As the name implies, a motor-generator set utilizes an electric motor as the prime mover to drive a generator. The motor and generator can be mounted on a common shaft or they can be mechanically connected through a coupling, belt drive system or reduction gear. In all cases, the motor requires a source of three-phase power and it runs on electrical input current while it drives the generator to produce the required single-phase or three-phase electrical output power.
How does the Horlick Company support their motor-generator sets once they are installed in the field?
Motor-generator sets are extremely durable and reliable and they can be expected to run continuously without incident for years. If one of our motor-generator sets operates improperly, we can typically diagnose the problem through a phone conversation with the end-user. We can typically fix most problems by sending the required part necessary for the repair straight from our stock. If a more serious problem is diagnosed, then we will work with a local repair facility in your area to provide a higher level of support if it is required.
Does the Horlick Company perform installation work?
No we are equipment suppliers and we do not install our equipment on jobsites.
Is a site startup required for your equipment?
A site startup is not typically required. The Horlick Company fully tests all of its equipment before it is shipped. If the install is completed properly, then the end-user should be able to start the equipment on their own. If a site startup is requested, then we will gladly perform one upon request.
Does the Horlick Company rent their equipment?
Yes, we have a fleet of rental motor-generator sets.
