The Corrpro Automatic Series of Oil-Cooled Rectifiers combine top quality components and manufacturing methods, with a wide variety of features and available options, resulting in an industry leader for cathodic protection.

 

 

 

 

Available modes of operation with this series are constant current or constant potential control with voltage limiting. The AC input supply is isolated by a stepdown transformer before being applied to a fully controlled, SCR, full-wave bridge assembly. This controlled and rectified voltage is filtered by a choke and capacitor combination (optional) to yield a low ripple DC output. The low ripple has the advantages of increased efficiency, no communication interference, and more precise control of the output.

Rectifiers are constructed in natural convection, oil-cooled, rugged galvanized steel enclosures rated NEMA4 or, optionally hot dipped, NEMA 4X. Enclosures are typically finished with a white, fusion bond, polyester powder paint. The Corrpro Automatic Series of rectifiers provide the best choice for automatic control of your cathodic protection current and potential requirements.
