Generators and high-voltage (HV) coils are necessary for power generation and are also intricate and complex projects that require high attention to detail in order to maximize the chances of success. Generator insulation tape providers fulfill a key role in ensuring these critical components work reliably and for a duration that fits their investment.
For HV coils, required insulation materials need to be able to handle the heat generated while also still performing up to electrical standards. Unlike traditional thermal insulation, which is designed to hold heat in, generator insulation tape needs to be thermally conductive—meaning it conducts or transfers heat from one side of the material to the other.
Finding the right insulation materials for your specific application—keeping in mind electrical performance and thermal conductivity— is necessary to ensure the best functionality possible, and working with a generator insulation tape supplier can ensure you find the best fit.
