New Line of Neutral Grounding Resistors Introduced by Milwaukee Resistor Corporation


Milwaukee Resistor Corporation has introduced a new line of Neutral Grounding Resistors for industrial and utility applications specifically designed to protect power transformers and generators as well as personnel from damaging fault currents.

The new series of Milwaukee Neutral Grounding Resistors are available from 480V up to 34.5KV with current ratings up to 2000 Amps.

Major benefits of the new Neutral Grounding Resistors provide protection from damaging fault currents and resulting expensive downtime and repairs. Increased plant personnel safety and related potential insurance rate reductions are also major accompanying benefits.

The key feature of the new Milwaukee Neutral Grounding Resistors is the compact design and small footprints of the units as space is at a premium in substations. The units are protected by an outdoor grade galvanized steel enclosure for mounting on top of or adjacent to the transformers or generators.

While most of the new Milwaukee Neutral Grounding Resistors are of custom design, those with capacities from 5KV to 15KV are ...In Stock And Available For Immediate Shipment !

Upon introducing the new Milwaukee Resistor Neutral Grounding Resistors, Dennis LeMaster, Chief Operating Officer of Milwaukee Resistor Corp., stated: "We are very excited about this new series of neutral grounding resistors. The new Neutral Grounding Resistors will perform in a wide variety of applications at industrial substations. We are counting on the use of our web site milwaukeeresistor.com and subsequent conversations with our team of hands-on application engineers to help the design engineers and plant personnel with quick access to technical data and to help them with specific application information for their custom situations."
