Custom Bus for Tight Quarters

Maching copper bus

Problem: This high capacity titanium producer was facing limited space for a bus system carrying 40,000 amps and it's cooling interconnections in a new Vacuum Arc Remelt (VAR) system.

Solution: Using modeling software, I2r POWER engineers were able to design a series of cooling passages for a large section of bus. Heat dissipation was calculated and a design to work within a limited geometry was created. It’s still a work in progress, but we’re loving the results already!
