Transformers, Inductors and Power Supplies for Food Processing Equipment
Triad Magnetics custom designs and manufacturers transformers, inductors and high-frequency magnetics and power supplies for a range of industries, including the food and beverage processing sector. With more than 75 years of experience producing magnetics for everything from early microwave ovens to spacecraft, Triad Magnetics is an industry leader in high-performance transformers, inductors and power supplies.
Power transformers in the food processing industry
The continued growth of the food and beverage industry depends on access to reliable equipment with high power quality. If this equipment fails, the manufacturer’s products are at risk of spoiling due to excessive heat or inconsistent temperatures. This can result in increased waste and elevated costs. For this reason, it is very important to invest in reliable power transformers that meet UL certification requirements and stop cables and electrical components from overheating or shorting.
Class 2 transformers in commercial food processing equipment
In food processing applications, risks can arise from the use of heating, cooling and processing equipment, which are vulnerable to fire and electric shock. At present, most equipment is therefore required to use Class 2-compliant transformers or power supplies. Triad Magnetics offers a broad selection of Class 2-compliant transformers for a wide range of food and beverage processing applications. Their Class 2 compliance ensures the addition of certain safety standards that help to reduce the risk of fire, shock and electrical failure. Class 2 transformers implement insulation that holds up in operating temperatures as high as 121°C and that meet dielectric withstanding voltages. By limiting excessive power, they also reduce the risk of shocks. More details of Triad Magnetics’ Class 2 power transformers include:
- Secondary open circuit voltages limited to 30V rms
- Secondary current limited to 5A when voltage is 20Vrms or less
- Secondary current limited to 100/V when voltage is between 20.1-30V
- Insulation for additional protection
- Creepage and clearance distances to separate conductors with opposing polarity
Reliable electrical equipment for the food and beverage sector
Triad Magnetics offers a range of reliable transformers and power supplies that enable companies in the food sector to keep up with the industry’s fast-paced growth. Many of the most widely used apparatus in the sector deploy Triad products, including:
- Beverage dispensers that use a custom-power Toroid
- Conveyor ovens and convection ovens that use a Class 2 Power Transformer each
- Coffee equipment that uses a Control Transformer
- Deep fryers that use a Common-Mode Choke
- Fast food egg that uses Triad’s current sense and PCB Power Transformers
