DRPP Rectifier latest investment at Merlin
February has seen the installation of a DRPP Rectifier - latest investment - at UK-based Merlin Circuit Technology.
Mat Beadel Merlin’s Technical Director said “Switching from water cooled rectification to air cooled results in reduced water and power consumption, with increased rectifier efficiency, benefiting not only MCT but also the environment, in keeping with the company’s stated goals. Advanced features such as full rated current output, air cooling for maximum efficiency and dual synchronized outputs with independent forward and reverse current settings, work together to enable custom profiles to be created to meet the plating requirements of both current and future designs and technologies." The GBP 100'000 investment is another key milestone in Merlin’s technology roadmap, a press release states.
