Transformer Oil Analysis

The routine condition monitoring of insulating oils in transformers is essential for a number of reasons, including:

 

■ Preventative maintenance
■ Compliance with environmental legislation
■ For insurance purposes

 

Testing the condition, chemical composition and quality are all essential to avoid unforeseen issues, serving an essential role in the upkeep of transformers, switchgears and tap-changers.

 

Whether mineral or silicone, small transformer or large, our easy to use analytical testing service gives our clients a clear, concise report listing recommended actions, giving you the tools you need to ensure reliable power distribution for your site, mitigating the risk of costly, and sometimes dangerous, unexpected failures.
