CustomKraft VFD System®


Back to Equipment Menu

CustomKraft’s variable frequency drive system reduces components and increases versatility,
allowing up to eight different adjustable motor speeds.  The system is manufactured in both a
stacked and bench style configuration.




The system operates similar to the original CustomKraft MultiPressure System® with fewer components and smoother operation.  Any cycle may be delivered with hot or cold water and up to eight (8) adjustable operating pressures.  Pressures may be adjusted from 100 pounds per square inch (psi) up to 1800 psi. 

Once a cycle is selected, the delivery line is purged with high-pressure; as the solution reaches the bay, the motor slows to a preset speed, delivering the selected product at the desired pressure.




Exclusive features for the variable frequency drive (VFD) unit include:

Tubular stainless steel stacked frame for spatial efficiency with component accessibility.

Hinged stainless steel electrical boxes with lock-out for flexibility and safety.

Clear acrylic flush mount tank lids with “drop-in” design for easier access to chemical tanks. 

Super E Baldor® 5 horsepower 3 phase motor for increased electrical efficiency (NEMA nominal efficiency rating 90.5%).

Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) for bay reliability and versatility (see Light Touch meter box).

Variable frequency drive unit is capable of up to eight (8) different motor speeds with “soft start” to increase electrical efficiency and reduce component fatigue.

Single pump/tank unit for fewer connections and easier installation.  Available in separate modules for mobility (modules must be connected on-site).

Overall reduction of components to further increase system reliability. 

Equipment options:

Piezoelectric switch “Light Touch” coin meter.

Built-in hour meter and Ethernet port.

The “Gripper” remote bay controller.

Modem accessible data.

Features standard on CustomKraft VFD units:

Stainless steel tubular frames with anodized aluminum backboard.

Baldor energy efficient motors, 5 horsepower three phase (unit will operate on single or three phase without changing motors).
