Press release date: April 29, 2014

The Horlick Company, a worldwide supplier of motor-generator sets and industrial control panels, announces the delivery of a frequency conversion motor-generator set to NCH Europe R&D labs in the United Kingdom. The motor-generator set is designed to convert the locally available 50 Hz power into a clean source of 60 Hz power to be used to test NCH's products prior to shipment.

NCH Europe is a leading provider of Water, Energy and Maintenance Solutions; NCH Corporation has operated since 1919. NCH Europe provides solutions in terms of Water Treatment, Waste Water, Lubricants, Fuel Additives, Parts Cleaning and Maintenance, and some of their innovations are shipped worldwide. In order to verify that their products work properly, NCH Europe must test products that are shipped outside the UK on a power source that is equivalent to that at the destination. NCH EuropeIn particular, for shipments to countries such as the United States, NCH Europe must convert the 50 Hz power available in their facility in the UK to the 60 Hz power that will be found in the USA.

To meet their requirement for a 60 Hz power source, NCH Europe discovered the Horlick Company website through an Internet search. One of the search terms they used was "frequency converters". NCH Europe reviewed the descriptive literature and product data sheets on the Horlick website. This information, combined with the technical videos posted on the website, was enough to convince NCH Europe that the Horlick Company motor-generator set would meet their frequency conversion requirements.

"The online form on the website was quite helpful in allowing us to easily specify our requirements. We liked the quick response from Horlick and the pricing was acceptable, we did not need to look any further" said Stephan Westcott Director of Engineering & Development at NCH Europe, "The 50 to 60 Hz motor-generator set has arrived and we've successfully commissioned it, everything is working well—thank you very much! We are very happy with the build quality and performance, and we will absolutely do business with Horlick in the future should we have additional needs in this area"

Shawn Hennessey, Horlick's Vice-President of Engineering, was able to answer all of the customer's questions and provide all the required technical information via the Internet. The motor-generator set supplied to NCH Europe is a Model 60SC. Horlick 60SC Model motor-generator sets utilize a 4-pole, 1500 RPM, induction motor to drive a 4-pole, 1800 RPM, synchronous generator through a V-belt drive system. They are rated for continuous duty and they provide manufacturers a clean source of 60 Hz power isolated from switching transients, voltage fluctuations and power line noise.
