Innovation for extended transformer life
Protect your assets with innovative solutions that control moisture levels, remove contaminants in fluid and paper insulation, and reduce dielectric fluid temperatures in your transformer.
Our engineered product range can be used to fix problems or to prevent them from happening in the first place. Use it to mitigate faults, stall emergent issues, and prevent problems from happening on critical and high-load equipment.
With more than 50 years of field testing experience and more than one billion gallons of oil processed for dehydration, oil reclamation, vacuum filling, and vacuum dry-outs, SDMyers is your reliable, cost-effective transformer service provider.
IR Thermography Inspection Windows for Medium and High Voltage Equipment
Save time and save lives by simplifying switch gear, breaker and substation
Inspection tasks around switch gear, breaker and substation equipment can be dangerous, time-consuming, and expensive. IR thermography is a non-contact inspection method, but it is not without inherent risks. Effective inspections require equipment to remain energized during the process. Opening energized switchgear, breaker panels, and cabinet transformer doors increases the risk of arc-flash injury and property damage and lengthens the time spent preparing PPE and following stringent guidelines. In many instances it’s just not practical given the safety risks. Don’t allow your IR program to become cost prohibitive. Our comprehensive range of IR thermography windows circumvent these risks and eliminate the threat to your people—and to your bottom line. IR windows make thermography a practical part of your predictive maintenance (PdM) plan.

DryMax Moisture Reduction Equipment
Dry up hidden causes of downtime
Moisture is the enemy of your transformer. When combined with heat and oxygen, the insulation begins to oxidize which irrevocably damages the entire transformer. Find out how we can help develop a Moisture Reduction Plan utilizing proven DryMax technology. Speak with a specialist.
SampleSafe Safe Oil Sampling for Cabinet Transformers
Eliminate planned downtime and protect technicians and equipment from arc flashes
Opening the door of a cabinet transformer poses a serious safety hazard. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) dictates stringent protocols for working on this type of equipment, including de-energizing the transformer while samples are taken and the use of advanced PPE on cabinet transformers of all sizes. SampleSafe allows technicians to avoid opening the cabinet door altogether, providing a safe and convenient way to obtain oil samples without the need for additional PPE and without shutting down the transformer.
CoolMax Supplemental Cooling System
Running hot? Cool it down for longer life
Keep your equipment safe with supplemental cooling when peak demands cause your units to overheat. CoolMax dissipates heat from the transformer oil quickly and easily. Designed as a stand-alone transformer cooling unit, the CoolMax system can be stationary or mobile.

InsulMax Filtering System
Cleaning up harmful contaminants
Preventative maintenance that includes removing destructive contaminants from your transformers can help diminish the aging process. InsulMax is a substation-grade monitoring and filtering system that removes harmful moisture and trace acids, both of which attack the paper insulation.
