To Prevent Corrosion and Power Failures
Testing transformer oil will assess the oil’s insulating and cooling properties and prevent corrosion, which is a warning sign of electric power failures.
Aging and oxidation are the two main enemies of these insulating properties. Being constantly exposed to water, air, high temperatures, and moisture, transformer oil is vulnerable to acidity
Intensified by the electric field, oxidation and a high acidity number indicate a deterioration of the oil’s insulating properties and may cause the corrosion of metal parts.
The objective of transformer oil analysis is to prevent acidification and corrosion by taking action upstream.
