The Transformer Oil Test Analysis And Its Maintenance

Does your transformer look healthy? When the transformer oil is tested properly, the most distressed signals will be decoded. The Transformer Oil test bathes every internal component and does require a lot of diagnostic information. The outcome of the Oil analysis exposes the internal condition of the Transformer which also helps in the early recognition of the embryonic faults.  The Oil Analysis is an essential element of the Preventive Transformer maintenance to keep the smooth running of the machines.

In the Transgear, all the tests are performed as Per IS: 1866 at a fully equipped modern laboratory. The major Transformer Oil Test includes;

               –        Our test parameters are Interfacial Tension,

               –        flash point, neutralization value (Acidity),

               –        Di-Electric Strength (BDV) and Specific Resistance (Resistivity).

               –        Moisture (Water) Content and Di-Electric Dissipation (Tanδ),

               –        Sludge Content.

And the method of the test is ring method, Pensky martens, chemical Test, Electrode Type, 3terminal cell, Karl Fischer Titration, 3 Terminal Cell, Chemical Test. And the Reference standards will be followed by the IS: 6104-1971, IS: 1448(P-21)-1992, IS: 1448(P-2)-1967, IS: 6972-1992, IS: 6103-1971, IS: 13567-92, IS: 6262-1971, IS: 1866 Annex-A.

When, if there is any infection occurred due to chemical interaction, with windings and any other solid insulation, catalyzed with the high temperature in the operation.  With the result of the original chemical properties of Transformer Oil test changes gradually, interpreting it with ineffective for its plan.

The transformer oil test analysis is conducted in a four different ways;

               –        Extending the oil drain intervals proportionately.

               –        Extend the routine internal equipment life of the transformer.

               –        To identify the minor and major problems before they come across with any major failures.

Generally, the transformer oil test is a contamination of a highly refined mineral oil, stable at the high temperatures with more excellent electrical properties. Most importantly, the Transformer oil Testing is subject to both mechanical and electrical conventions when the transformer is in the operation. The more information on conducting these industrial tests is available as per the industrial standards, where the testing will be done by either of the methods insisted by the industrial standards and technical requirements.

The transformer oil test is used in the oil filled transformers along with the high voltage capacitors and fluorescent lamp ballasts. It includes both the high voltage switches and the circuit breakers. The major function of the transformer oil is shielding, suppressing of corona and arcing and to be serving as the coolant. In the Transgear, with the more qualified and well equipped experts will provide you the right service at the customer expectation.

Transformer Oil test is not only the subject to its own deprivation, also it is the mode to bring the smooth functioning of the electrical equipments. Generally, the test will also be categorized with Color & Appearance, Breakdown Voltage, Water Content, Acidity (Neutralization Value), Dielectric Dissipation Factor, Resistivity, Sediments & Sludge, Interfacial Tension, Flash Point, Pour Point, Density, Kinematic Viscosity, Dissolved Gas Analysis, Furan Analysis. Along with the transformer oil testing, there will be a Lubricants testing, Oil condition Monitoring Testing, Oils and the Fluids Testing.

TRANSGEAR does provide all the kind of the better quality service to the transformers. Wherein, we are managed by the group of qualified and highly experienced engineers. Also the transformer repair in the Transgear brings you the quality you expect. And with the transformer testing is also been conducted at the best too. We are most powered by the well known consultants for the Transformer Oil Testing Laboratory.
