THE SAFEST WAY TO OBTAIN OIL SAMPLES FROM CABINET TRANSFORMERS WITHOUT DEENERGIZING
The majority of electrical injuries from cabinet transformers are burns resulting from arc flashes. The intense heat produced from an arc flash can result in substantial equipment damage and devastating personal injury, which can lead to significant replacement costs and liability claims from anyone involved in the incident. SampleSafe™ external sampling devices eliminate the need to outfit technicians with additional personal protective equipment (PPE) allowing them to take samples without ever needing to deenergize your transformer.
PROTECT TECHNICIANS BY AVOIDING THE RISK ALTOGETHER
Opening a transformer cabinet to obtain an oil sample presents an inherent safety risk. SampleSafe Essential mounts to the outside of the transformer away from electrical hazards, allowing technicians to safely obtain oil samples without opening the cabinet door. This greatly reduces their exposure to dangerous energized equipment. SampleSafe ST offers the same level of protection, but with the additional security of a rugged, powder coated steel locking enclosure.
SampleSafe devices enable you to comply with the guidelines established by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 70E, 2018).
