MOTOR CAPACITOR FOR MO-33893
A critical component in restaurant equipment, a capacitor helps power an electric motor, such as those used to drive a compressor in a refrigeration unit. The capacitor stores electrical energy and then releases it as needed to help the compressor motor start and run smoothly. Capacitors are commonly used in all kinds of commercial kitchen appliances, such as fryers, ovens, dishwashers, ice machines, and more.
Motors are used in all kinds of foodservice equipment to power beaters, blenders, slicers, basket lifts, filters, fans and much more. A motor converts one form of energy into mechanical energy. General-purpose motor designs with standard dimensions and characteristics provide convenient mechanical power for foodservice equipment once customized to the exact OEM specifications (RPM, torque, magnet dimension, winding, etc.).
Different types of motors are used in restaurant equipment, including AC motors, DC motors, and stepper motors. AC motors are used to power equipment that requires high torque, such as mixers and grinders, while DC motors are used in equipment that requires precise control, such as conveyor belts and automated food prep machines. Stepper motors are used in equipment that requires precise positioning, such as robot arms and automated food dispensers.
