The Horlick Company Announces Motor-Generator Set Shipments Made in the Second Half of 2019.

These selected MG sets where shipped to companies in the USA, and are to be used for frequency conversion from 60 Hz to 50 Hz

Randolph, MA, January 22, 2020 – The Horlick Company, a manufacturer of motor-generator sets for both frequency conversion and load-isolation is announcing information regarding a portion of the shipments it made in the second half of 2019.

The utility power in the U.S. is generated at a frequency 60 Hz.  Much of the utility power overseas to include Europe, India and many Asian countries is generated at 50 Hz power.  U.S. based manufacturers who ship overseas typically require a 50 Hz source of power to test their products prior to shipments.  In the second half of 2019, we made a number of shipments to manufacturers with this 50 Hz requirement.  The motor-generators shipped were to be used to test hot tubs, exercise equipment and robotic technology, and healthcare equipment as a minimum.

Some of the highlights of our shipments are as follows:

  • Horlick shipped a 250 KVA, Model 50SC-2003 motor-generator set to Bullfrog Spas in Salt Lake City, UT. Bullfrog is a leading manufacturer of luxury hot tubs and their products are distributed throughout New Zealand, Australia, Asia, South America and Europe.  Bullfrog purchased our MG set mounted in a customized sound-reducing enclosure.  They intended to feed the 240/416V, 3-phase, 50 Hz voltage produced by our generator into a distribution panel board that will then distribute the power throughout their test area.
  • In the past 3 years, Philips Healthcare in Latham, NY has purchased (4) of our 50SC Model motor-generator sets. Most recently, we shipped our Model 50SC-253 and 50SC-503, 60-50 Hz frequency converters in the fall of 2019.  All of the motor-generator sets have been our standard systems with unit-mounted control panels.  They have all been purchased and installed by ARCON Construction and Management Services out of Albany, NY.
  • ICON Health & Fitness took delivery of a Model 50SC-201 motor-generator set in December 2019. This 60-50 Hz motor-generator is identical to an MG set we shipped to ICON in 2013.  ICON, a Salt Lake City, UT based manufacturer, requires 50 Hz power to test their exercise equipment.  They are the world’s largest manufacturer of exercise equipment, and they manufacture items such as treadmills, elliptical trainers, and stationary bikes.
