Following annual laboratory “transformer oil testing” at Lafarge Cement, waterhouses.
It was noted that several transformers failed to meet the required British standards for KV strength and moisture content.
With effective “transformer oil filtration” the insulation oil was bought back within standard, this was a manned and monitored one day procedure per transformer carried out on site at a fraction of the cost of replacing the insulation oil.
Chief electrical engineer Justin Welford was delighted with the results as following our filtration method the insulation oil standard was actually above that expected of new insulation oil.
It was also an environmentally friendly procedure, negating the need to dispose of the existing oil and the transportation of new insulation oil to site.
The procedure can also be carried out “live” without power interruption giving our customers peace of mind their operation can continue to run smoothly while essential and critical works are carried out.
Lafarge Cement are a valued customer of Transform Energy and enjoy a close working relationship.
