Eheim external filter, 50hz vs. 60hz
 
Is there anyone having experience that you used 50hz filter in 60 hz area?

I bought Eheim Pro3 2073 230V 50Hz in Germany and tried to operate in 220V 60Hz area.
Firstly it seemed to work well but after some minute, it made irregular noise and didn't work well.
Do you guys have any experience and know any tip to resolve my problem?

About all you can do is get a new filter that uses local power. It
will just burn up otherwise.

Thank you, The Stare,

Do you have any experience or any technical background for your answer?
I already know that pump will rotate faster than 50hz circumstance , make heat and have reduced life.
I found there are different Impeller size depending on Hz.
60Hz is having smaller size than 50Hz.
Can I use it by just replacing Impeller with one of 60Hz?

Thanks again,

I'm no expert on motors other than fixing them at work and didn't know
there were replacement impellers for different Hz power. I don't know
where you are but don't you have 110V 60Hz? That would mean buying a
new filter but you would get the proper motor for your area if you buy
it locally. You could try the different impeller first if you are
tight on money.

The current consumption and power dissipation on the 220V 60Hz supply
will be quite a bit higher than on the 230V 50Hz supply. There could
be a thermal trip in the filter cutting the supply. There is no easy
fix.

Yeah, I know this is an old post but this group is dead!

Just get the 60Hz impellor, that should fix it.

I finally replaced the impella with one of 60 Hz Filter and fixed all of problems.
And I have been running 1 and half years without any problems.
