Why oil analysis?

Supplier: GE Energy Services

Reliability of plant is vital to all utilities, industrial and mining companies alike, and power transformers play a critical role within the substations and power plants providing electrical power to processes and people.

The consequences of neglecting these valuable assets are often catastrophic and very expensive, not just in terms of the capital lost by the failure of a transformer but for the costs associated with the service disruption.

Insulating liquid sampling and analysis provides an insight into the "health" status of a particular unit.

When combined with other electrical tests and sound engineering knowledge, Oil Analysis can provide a very powerful tool to diagnose and assess the condition of each unit.
