Testing the condition and quality of transformer insulating oil provides data showing the actual condition of the transformer, and its remaining lifetime. Information from oil analysis can help anticipate potential failures, and guide precisely targeted maintenance and replacement plans.
Transformer oil testing is a proven loss prevention technique that should be a part of any condition based predictive maintenance program. Essentially an early warning system, transformer oil testing allows management to identify maintenance priorities, plan work assignment schedules, and order necessary parts and materials.
A transformer’s fluid serves as a heat transfer medium, and is an integral part of a transformer's insulation system. It is best practice to periodically perform tests on the transformer oil to determine if it is still capable of fulfilling its role as an insulating media.
Petrolabs PEAS-Electrical package program helps transformers run smoothly and reliably.
We provide transformer oil and insulating oil analysis and testing services across India.
PEAS - Electrical monitors the condition and change in transformer oil quality, helping to identify potential transformer oil related failures before they occur, reduce disruptions, and keep unscheduled maintenance to a minimum.
We test for transformer oil purity, quality, and chemical composition. Transformer oil test methods include ASTM, IS, and other recognized transformer oil analysis testing procedures. Routine testing of transformer oils and insulating oils on a regular schedule is an accepted industry practice.
By showing the effects of the transformer’s operation on the insulating oil, these analyses confirm the serviceability and condition of the oil in use and allow better scheduling of transformer maintenance to avoid unplanned outages. Analysis of the concentration of various gases within transformer insulating oil and the monitoring of physical properties will indicate the condition of your power transformers.
