The Phasemaster® rotary phase converter can supply true 3-phase power to any single motor or combination of motors in all types of waste management equipment such as balers, compactors and shredders. Should these applications operate outdoor in unprotected settings, Phasemaster offers a family of designs to provide optimal performance regardless of equipment type or site conditions.

Phasemaster converters are operating equipment manufactured and installed by many of the best known names in the field.


Critical Selection and Application Criteria:

  • Be sure to have adequate single-phase service. You must have at least 100 amps of single phase service for each 20 HP of connected 3-phase load at 230 volts. Verify with your utility company
