Spark-Limiting ESP Controls

Spark-Limiting ESP Controls

TR Set-revised

Click to expand.

Modern ESP voltage controls use sparking as a gauge for maximizing the applied voltage in the collecting fields.  This provides maximum ESP collection efficiencies.  The controls can sense a spark and extinguish (quench) it before any damage occurs.

Optimal spark rates for specific ESPs and/or bus sections can be determined through an evaluation of voltage control data, ESP design and the process stream.
