Overheating in a transformer can signal a potential issue and cut the useful life of the asset. As the temperature rises the cellulose paper and other insulating materials inside will start to breakdown. Â Understand the temperature profile within the transformer and provide a window into the asset to mitigate the risks and plan preventative actions before its too late.
Fiber Optic Sensors Â provides the most accurate hot spot temperatures within a winding
Moisture intrusion into a transformer can signal a major issue within the asset. Â Over time, water can break down the insulating properties of the oil and cellulose paper, causing irreversible damage. Â Qualitrol’s family of TM Series DGA sensors have an optional moisture probe to measure water within the insulating fluid.
