The Spencer Turbine Company

Windsor, Connecticut

 

Since 1892, The Spencer Turbine Company has manufactured innovative solutions for air and gas handling problems.

What’s New/Best Seller • The Spencer Energy Watcher.

Advantages/Features • The Spencer Energy Watcher electronic motor control monitors the use of a Spencer central vacuum system by sensing low-use periods. It automatically reduces the vacuum producer’s motor speed during these periods and thus reduces power consumption. When the vacuum system is started, the controller automatically ramps up to full speed. When operators stop using the system, it senses the decreased power requirement and reduces the speed of the vacuum producer. As operators come back on-line, the system automatically ramps up again.
