AC Capacitors

GD Rectifiers and API Capacitors work together to design and manufacture both standard and customised AC Capacitors with various current, voltage, size, mass and terminations. They provide long life and reliable capacitors by using ultra low defect density, high isotactic, metallised polypropylene dielectric film incorporating an extended working temperature range and controlled self-healing capabilities. APl capacitors are finished in powder coated corrosion free metal or insulated cases and filed with an environmentally safe oil or dry leak free resin.
