GBE experience copes with extreme installation environment
GBE has recently manufactured some air core three-phase short circuit current limiting reactors with the active part completely fluid immersed. Many are the advantages of this solution, such as the possibility of outdoors installation even in highly polluted environment and the reduction of the safety distances thanks to the grounded tank.
The specific design of these reactors minimises the magnetic field by screening and conveying it inside the tank, and therefore reducing it to the minimum.
If compared to dry cast or VPI reactors, oil immersed short circuit current limiting reactors are more suitable for any kind of installation and at the same time environmentally friendly when filled with vegetable based or synthetic ester fluids.
