Everything to know about Transformer Oil Filtration
Transformer_on_Pole. Transformers play an important role in the electrical power industry. Transformers convert power to appropriate levels for other system components to safely use. Transformers need to be maintained to guarantee long life. Moreover, a good quality and clean oil is essential for the transformer to provide efficient performance.
Transformer oil tends to degrade over time. The oil is exposed to undesirable materials like acids, metal dust, moisture etc. When transformers contain dissolved gases, dust, and other contaminants, it is time to take action for the oil to be filtered and purified.
Transformer maintenance and services centres maintain high quality equipment for treating oil using in line transformer oil filtration techniques. These techniques help sustain an excellent performance, safety and ease of operation for transformer maintenance staff.
About Transformer Oil Filtering:
Transformer oil purifier requires filtered and dried oil. During its usage, the insulating oil absorbs moisture and gets polluted by sopping fibers, dirty particles, aging products, and soot. Even unused oil is not clean enough as it may have absorbed moisture from the air or may have got polluted in the barrel it was stored in. The efficiency of the oil as an insulating material is highly reduced as the moisture level increases. Hence, transformer oil filtering is an important process which eliminates solid particles, dissolved gasses, and dissolved water. The electrical properties of the oil can be enhanced by filtering, dehydration, and degassing. Oil Filtering keeps the transformer in good condition and increases its life.
