Fluid testing for oil-filled transformers assures the oil is performing how it should. Insights on oil health, contamination, and lubricant life help to drive informed decisions that maximize transformer life and support safety measures—saving money and preventing accidents.
A transformer’s protective insulating oil can degrade from use, wear, or contamination. This makes it more prone to arcing and corona discharge or less effective at dissipating heat. These situations can cause a catastrophic failure, possibly resulting in an explosion, fire or even life threatening damage.
Failure also has a financial impact, taking several days or longer to replace equipment. Regular testing allows for historical trending that can be used to help guide your maintenance practices to support the life expectancy and safety of your transformers.
