CAPACITOR START 145-175MFD 330
Start components are commonly used in restaurant equipment, particularly in refrigeration and cooling systems. Start components are designed to provide the necessary power to start the compressor in the refrigeration or cooling system.
The two most common start components are the "start relay" and the "start capacitor."
A start relay is an electromechanical device that is used to temporarily bypass the start winding of the compressor motor during the start-up process. This helps to provide the initial boost of power needed to start the compressor motor, after which the start relay switches off and the motor runs on its main winding.
A start capacitor is an electrical device that stores energy and releases it quickly to provide the initial boost of power needed to start the compressor motor. It is usually used in conjunction with the start relay to help the compressor motor start up more smoothly and efficiently.
Start components are essential to ensuring the proper operation of refrigeration and cooling systems in restaurant equipment, while prolonging the useful life of these systems by reducing wear and tear on the compressor motor.
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.
