Retrofit refers to the process of updating an existing system with new technology. Retrofit kits contain fixtures that are designed to improve the safety, performance, and efficiency of an existing system that will benefit from technological advancements. Retrofit provides machines and buildings with new parts or equipment that will enhance safety and functionality. Retrofitting is widely applied to lighting fixtures
. LED retrofit kits are installed to replace traditional lighting fixtures with their LED equivalent without having to replace the existing lighting fixtures or installations. LED lighting has new technology that is more lightweight and helps to cut energy costs in households and businesses. An example of machinery retrofitting is the updating of mechanical governors in steam turbines. There are available digital governors that require a new steam valve actuator and adding speed sensors
for measuring the turbine shaft speed. Other retrofit kits include petrol car to electric car conversion kits, pulley systems kits, plumbing retrofit kits, and building systems kits, and heating systems kits.Looking for the best selection of retrofit kits?
