Klansman Company is the exclusive Hydra distributor in the Russian Federation, Kazakhstan, Armenia, and Kyrgyzstan.
Hydra is a capacitor manufacturer that has been in the business for over 100 years. Hydra produces more than 20 million capacitors per year at two production sites. The headquarters and 50% of production is located in the Czech Republic, the second enterprise is in Vietnam.
HYDRA a.s. (until 2007 AEG Components) is a European manufacturer of film capacitors located in the city of Jicin (Czech Republic). The technology for producing capacitors is based on the use of a polypropylene film as an insulator, on which a metallized layer is applied, which serves as a lining of the capacitor (the so-called MKP technology). The company supplies capacitors for the largest industrial brands: Bosch, Miele, Electrolux, Danfoss, Grundfos, Whirlpool, etc. Since 2012, the company has been offering its products on the Russian market of power electronics and electrical components.
Now the HYDRA production program consists of capacitors for starting engines, fluorescent lamps, as well as power capacitors for reactive power compensation and voltage filtering in converter technology.
Power Factor Correction (PFC) capacitors are used for reducing the reactive power which is created by production machines and stresses the grid. This type of capacitor is used worldwide.
Hydra produces 1 or 3-phase cylindrical PFC-Capacitors up to 50 kvar. All capacitors are equipped with an overpressure fuse and filled either with oil or gas for highest quality and safety.
Most household machines (such as dryers, dishwashers), pumps, compressors, motors for roller shutter doors and a lot of other applications worldwide use Motor Capacitors as film capacitors with PP-foil.
Because of our high quality, Hydra is one of the leading suppliers of these Motor Capacitors and delivers to all main suppliers in Europe with about 18 million capacitors per year. This is the core competence of Hydra with a history of more than 100 years. The Hydra motor capacitors can be delivered in 2 versions: Unprotected (S0) and Protected (S2).
Protected Motor Capacitors are filled with oil and have an overpressure fuse which disconnects the capacitor at failure therefore providing a high safety standard. So more and more manufacturers of household machines switch to S2 capacitors for safety reasons.
As every client has different requirements, Hydra has the ability to produce some thousands of different types and all of them are specially designed for our clients. Our skilled engineers can realize your exact demands regarding size, capacitance, connectors and packing and produce a quality capacitor you can depend on.
DC Link Capacitors
DC-Link Capacitors are used for all kind of inverters, UPS, Wind Power, Solar Power, drive technology, etc.
Hydra produces cylindrical DC-Link Capacitors using the highest quality and manufactured to the exact needs of our clients.
All Hydra DC-Link Capacitors are filled with resin either polypropylene and epoxy resin and fulfill highest requirements. Many companies around the world with high technical expectations rely on Hydra capacitors.
Filter capacitors are used for the filtering of undesirable frequencies. They are common in electrical and electronic equipment, and cover a number of applications, such as: all kinds of inverters, UPS-Systems, Wind Power, Sinus filter, etc.
Hydra produces Cylindrical Filter Capacitors manufactured to the exact requirements and needs of the clients with the highest quality.
All Hydra Filter Capacitors are protected with an overpressure fuse and filled with oil for perfect heat transfer from inside to outside. So Hydra avoids peak temperature at the foil and can be used also at high ambient temperatures with full load.
Even as modern LED lights no longer require a capacitor, there are still millions of HID-Lights all over the world which still do require capacitors. So Hydra delivers about 2 million Light Capacitors every year worldwide because HID-Lights are still in use.
The oil filled Hydra metalized polypropylene Lighting Capacitors are designed for long-life in the high-temperature environments of high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting. For safety reasons, the oil filled Hydra Lighting Capacitors are protected with an overpressure fuse to provide a high standard of safety.
Hydra Defibrillator Capacitors are custom designed for the use in public access or external first responder defibrillators. The capacitors are housed in round metal epoxy-filled cases. We use high quality materials and the production is controlled by our quality management system. This guarantees a reliable and dependable product They are available in voltage range 1500 – 2300VDC and 500 joules charge. We are open to design for you capacitors according to your application requirements.
