Industrial electrical parts, starters, alternators
Alternators and starters for industrial equipment lead a hard life, operate in harsh environments, and are often exposed to the elements. Some equipment, like forklifts, may be used almost constantly while others may go weeks between uses. Both of these situations can lead to shorter life spans, but for different reasons.
Constant use has obvious drawbacks....normal wear of internal components occurs over a shorter calender time period. Sitting for long stretches on the other hand, can lead to discharged or sulfated batteries which add to the work load of an alternator during run time.
Factor in that most industrial engines run at very low RPMs and you have an overloaded, overheated alternator.
We stock a huge supply of industrial electrical parts, starters, alternators and batteries, as well as miscellaneous industrial equipment electrical parts like: switches, custom windings, and batteries for all applications. If we don't have it in stock, we can likely order it through our large database of parts. Call us today!
