Don’t Get Caught WITHOUT POWER – Mitigate your risk to production with Power Electronics/Power Conversion solutions such as NEELTRAN’s DC Power Supplies.

At NEELTRAN, our customers place a high priority on reliable DC Power. This is because DC Power drives critical production processes, such as electrolysis/electrochemical processes, electrowinning, metals processing, or hazardous location applications.

A DC power supply failure (DC Transformer or Rectifier) has significant (in some cases grave) consequences. NEELTRAN helps you respond to risk from older/underperforming power conversion systems – with solutions to mitigate short term risk while addressing the long-term production goals of your company. A DC Power Supply failure typically means 6-12 months of down time while waiting for the custom replacement equipment (Rectifier Transformer and/or Rectifier).

With Industry showing signs of growth again, it’s important to recognize that NOW is the time to evaluate your power profile and plan to replace, upgrade, repair or even “back up” some of the older problematic power conversion equipment (including rectifier transformers and rectifiers) that drive your key production processes – but are also adding unnecessary risk.

In contrast, the promise of potential new business may make it necessary to upgrade output on existing production lines or even expand your production capacity through plant expansion. We can provide new DC Power Supplies to replace and augment your existing ones or we can service and or upgrade competitors units.

As part of your risk evaluation of older/malfunctioning power conversion equipment, NEELTRAN can help you as you consider these recommendations:

Identify Risk - Review/Evaluate Existing Power Profile

NEELTRAN can help you to evaluate your existing Rectifier Transformer, Rectifiers and Controls, Oil samples/Oil test reports, Run Tests, Review Repair history, etc. – while paying attention to anticipated future needs. NEELTRANS excellent transformer and rectifier service department will respond quickly and professionally to your inquiries.

Rewind/Refurb "Before" Rewind/Refurb "After"


Rectifier and Transformer Repair, Transformer Rewinding, or Refurbishing old Rectifiers and Transformers – NEELTRAN can Service your needs (in some cases even correct design deficiencies) transformers and
rectifiers manufac
tured by others faster and for lower cost than replacing the equipment. NEELTRAN can also upgrade and modernize your rectifier section with the latest SCR’s and water-cooled technology, and provide Controls upgrades/modernization also.

“Pad Ready” Replacement/Retrofit Solutions

NEELTRAN is expert at replacing existing Rectifier Transformers and/or Rectifiers (Retrofitting) with “Pad Ready” Solutions

Existing rectifier transformers which are showing signs of age and degrading performance can easily be replaced with a brand new NEELTRAN unit. Our excellent engineering team focuses on flexibility of design, so we
can incorporate our famous “best design practices” into the replacement product while maintaining the same connections and existing envelope requirements by providing “Pad Ready” solutions which usually perform better than the original units.

Upgrading DC Power Supplies

NEELTRAN can design replacement equipment that will accommodate increased power outputs, often within the same “Pad Ready” concept as a traditional “apples for apples” retrofit. More power CAN fit into the same space!

Controls Upgrades and Modernization -- NEELTRAN designs and develops its own controls (power electronics) for its DC power supplies. Our staff also programs PLC's to allow for easy customer interface. NEELTRAN can update controls for any manufacturers DC Power Supply to today's power electronics standards. You don’t have to worry about obsolescence since we use available non-proprietary PLC's and our

PC boards will be available for the next 30+ years since we use them on military projects and are required to keep them from becoming obsolete!

Service Plans – NEELTRAN can suggest and implement regular service plans and evaluations to lengthen the life of your DC Power Supplies. Whether it’s an annual Transformer Repair and Maintenance program, or regular Rectifier preventative maintenance and cleaning, we can be relied on to keep your dc power supplies running smoothly.

Back-Up and Universal Back Up (or Spare) Solutions – NEELTRAN will work with you to design “Pad Ready” Backup Rectifier Transformers and DC Power Supplies to prevent lost production in case of catastrophic failure of older equipment. Back Up units can be placed in storage or even designed with multiple inputs and outputs on trailers and skids for situations which may require a wider input/output range.

NEELTRAN Retrofits are "Pad Ready"

Don’t get caught without power. Whether you’re an Aluminum Smelter, Chemical Company or Oil Company – You can turn to NEELTRAN to help you mitigate risk, and we’ll provide you with power conversion solutions, work with you towards delivery and installation, and provide excellent service for years to come.
