IDEAL #SynchronousCondensers are a long-trusted solution providing system inertia, reactive power, increased fault tolerance and short-circuit capability supporting power quality. Compared to capacitors, condensers have a life expectancy of at least 30 years. Now, that’s IDEAL!

Have you had a negative repair experience? This "repair” consisted of an incorrectly re-wound rotor remedied by injecting epoxy wedges and a yellow substance to fill the void. Both exploded in the stator exposing copper. Do not let this happen to you. Call #IDEAL!

Winter is coming... to your motors!

#IDEAL recently partnered up with one of our fellow #EASA motor repair shops to rewind a large, salient pole rotor, rewind the exciter, and then test the motor on our massive, ultra-low-resonance test floor. No one knows your equipment better than the people who originally manufactured it! As the O.E.M., we were able to expand the capabilities and shorten the delivery for the EASA shop partner while making sure the end user was back on line with the confidence that it was done right. IDEAL supports EASA partners with both new and legacy products like no one else can in our world-class facilities.

In true #IDEAL fashion let's relate this day back to our industry with the power factor beer analogy! Using a standard stein of beer as a guideline, everything below the red line is considered useable electricity or real power. This portion of the beer is what it takes to power electrical equipment. Everything above the red line is considered wasted electricity or reactive power. This is the power that motors require to perform their duties, but it is not the power used to perform the actual work. Combining the real power and the reactive power, the entire glass of beer is considered the apparent power. Therefore, the power factor is the percentage of apparent power that does all the real work or in this case the amount of beer that is actually drinkable!

IDEAL has a long history in high-voltage, high-power hermetic motors for #airconditioning / #refrigeration, and we're fully supporting our OEM components with repairs, replacements, and upgrades. Here's an example where after decades of attempts to repair locally, an overseas customer returned the unit to our factory where we fully upgraded and repaired the rotor, replacing the original aluminum bars with new copper bars and re-processed through our IDEAL VPI system. The factory-fresh, upgraded rotor and stator passed the OEM test procedure guaranteeing years of reliable, continuous duty. That's Genuine IDEAL!

June 14th commemorates #FlagDay, the day when old #glory was adopted as the official flag of the United States of America. At the same time #NationalFlagDay was being established by Congress, #IDEAL was leading the world in synchronous innovation developing #brushless #excitation #systems! The most recent version of the flag was designed by then 17-year-old Ohio resident Robert G. Heft and submitted for approval by President Eisenhower in 1960. This is the 50-star version we are all accustomed to seeing today. Being a 100% American-owned company, IDEAL flies the American flag high and proud remembering that we are one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

WHO YOU GONNA CALL? #IDEALelectric! 37 years ago, #Ghostbusters was released, and it got us wondering, “how many megawatts does a Ghostbuster require?” Well, according to the scientists themselves, their containment unit needed "220 Volts and 10 Megawatts" to operate ⚡⚡⚡ That’s a whopping 45,455 amps and some serious bus bar! While that would be quite a unique generator, it's just the kind of specialty electric machinery IDEAL makes today!

Contact us for your custom orders, especially for the #missioncritical applications, you know, like containing #ghosts 👻 www.theidealelectric.com

Capabilities 

Up to 40,000 kW

IDEAL's Mansfield, Ohio facility has the capability to build machines to the 40-megawatt (50,000 HP) power range depending on the rotational speed. The largest machine to ship from the factory to date is 265,000 lbs.

Voltages to 15kv

IDEAL pioneered high voltage insulation systems and that legacy is continued today, backed by thousands of low and medium voltage machines, many in corrosive environments.

IDEAL's Mansfield, Ohio facility has a very unique 14' (4.27m) VPI system - one of the largest throughout the Americas.

2 to over 160 Poles

IDEAL builds super-slow to high-speed machines with 2 to more than 160 Poles.

High Speed

While IDEAL is most known for our multi-pole, slow speed machines and benchmark setting 4-pole machines, our latest Permanent Magnet and Ultra-Performance Induction technology has found application in high-speed machines from 4,000-28,000 RPM. 

Fixed & Variable Speed

Our motors and generators are designed for both fixed and variable-speed applications. In fixed speed, we support all starting methods, and in variable-speed, motors are designed for all variable-speed drive types and technologies.

Hermetic Motors

In the 1940's IDEAL became a pioneering maker of hermetic motors. In the 1960's the 2,000 HP barrier was broken for refrigeration compressors. Carrier Corporation acquired IDEAL in the 1970's and subsequently became part of United Technologies Corporation (UTX). UTX divested the company in the 1980's, yet IDEAL remained a leading supplier of high-horsepower, medium and high-voltage hermetic motors with marquee installations across the world and on the oceans, including air conditioning the Queen Mary II.

All Cooling Methods

IDEAL offers all typical air and liquid cooling methods as well as specialty, exotic and otherwise challenging cooling solutions. 

Severe Duty

While all IDEAL machines are built to outperform, some applications and environments require special considerations for severe duty. The more demanding the application, the more IDEAL we become backed by thousands of references.

Nema & IEC Standard

IDEAL builds to NEMA or IEC standards.

Hazardous Environments

IDEAL machines are operating in every hazardous environment.

ATEX, Ex, ExN, Class 1 Division 2, H2S

Brushed & Brushless Excitation

A hallmark of The Ideal Electric and Manufacturing Company was pioneering the move to brushless excitation technology in the 1950's. Today we uniquely offer both brushed and brushless solutions.

Synchronizing Systems

IDEAL offers both its thoroughly modern Digital Synchronizing System (DSS) in addition to legacy synchronizing solutions.
