Degassing & Vacuum Processing
SDMyers can help prevent many potential hazards and downtime characterized by the presence and/or buildup of combustible gases in your transformer.
investigate elevated combustible gas levels
SDMyers can help prevent many potential hazards and downtime characterized by the presence and/or buildup of combustible gases in your transformer. When test results show the presence of combustible gases, this often indicates a fault in your transformer. An investigation is recommended, which would eventually include degassing the fluid to remove these gases and restoring your transformer to a new baseline.
Fix the symptoms. Find the cause.
Transformer oil purification through degassing will not fix the underlying issue. It is necessary to INVESTIGATE the symptoms with electrical testing, inspection and repair. With more than 50 years of experience, our onsite transformer repair services effectively and efficiently get your transformers back to a reliable condition. Often, the fault can be pin-pointed and repaired in the field.
degas the fluid
Degasification is then performed in the field on the de-energized transformer. The process involves pulling oil from the transformer to the degasification unit where it is heated, vacuum degassed, and filtered. The transformer oil-purification process is complete when oil quality meets OEM, IEEE, IEC, or other applicable standards.
