Testing & Monitoring
Inspection & Sampling
Get transformer testing anywhere with Mobile Diagnostic Technicians.
With more than 300 hours each of specialized transformer training and a focus on accuracy, safety, and care, our MDT’s work hard to gather the information we need to keep your electrical system running.
- Visual Inspection
Our highly-trained MDT’s conduct in-depth visual transformer inspections of each substation and unit they visit, and report the findings via Transformer Dashboard®.
- Infrared Scanning
A detailed Infrared (IR) scan of your transformer can tell you a lot about the overall health of the unit, and when it is performed in conjunction with visual inspection and fluid analysis it puts another form of rich data in the hands of the experts.
We draw fluid samples from your energized transformer (no down time required) and send them directly to our analytical testing lab where the internal condition of the transformer is documented, analyzed, and diagnosed.
- Partial Discharge
Partial discharge (PD) detection is a failure mode technique that can locate electrical issues very early on with the aid of ultrasonic, transient earth voltage (TEV), high-frequency current transformer (HFCT), and ultra-high frequency (UHF) sensors. PD testing can confirm liquid testing faults, as well as find additional failure modes, and it can do it earlier than preventive maintenance methods based on heat and other indicators.
No more guessing. Our transformer oil test packages cover it all.
No single test is sufficient to define all known conditions. We offer our broad range of test packages to customers based on their specific needs, providing the most effective testing methods on the market to diagnose your transformer’s condition.
- Mobile Diagnostic Technicians (MDT’s)
Our qualified and trained field techs obtain standardized oil samples, resulting in the most accurate test data possible.
- ASTM Testing Standards
We test transformer oil to industry standards using a combination of standard test equipment and proprietary software.
- Precise Laboratory Equipment
We use only the highest quality laboratory equipment, and that equipment is powered by experience; the average lab experience of our technicians is twelve years.
