Air Core Reactors

With almost 50 years of experience in the design and manufacture of air core reactors and with over 25,000 units in the field, Phoenix Electric Corp. is one of the world’s top suppliers of reactors for utility and industrial applications. With a customer-centric approach and a design philosophy based on higher durability and lower operating temperatures for longer life, Phoenix designs and manufactures air core reactors for the most demanding applications.

Key features & benefits of our air core reactors:

Heavy duty insulated aluminum cable minimizes need for costly turn to turn testing

Epoxy impregnated fiberglass roving for mechanical strength

Welded aluminum terminals drilled to NEMA specifications

Additional layers distribute operating current to minimize heating & extend reactor life

One of the lowest noise levels on the market (under 50 dB)

Designed to industry standards such as
IEEE C57.16

Computer designed to minimize initial cost and operating losses

Phoenix Electric started designing and producing air core reactors in 1973 and has put over 25,000 reactors in service worldwide.

“We visited PEC when the reactor upgrade was in the planning stage. We were impressed with their customer-service orientation. Their normal manufacturing window for these units was about 6 months, but we asked them to do it in only 4. They met our schedule, and they were on site to help with the installation”
