Energy / Power Generation
Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis is widely practiced , whether they be nuclear, coal-fired steam, combined cycle gas turbine, medium and low speed diesels, windmills, or geo-thermal. All of these plants have critical turbines, pumps, bearings, fans, compressors, gears and hydraulic systems.
Failure of critical equipment may cause plant shut down at great cost.
The analysis of electrical oils serves a pivotal role in the maintenance and upkeep of transformers, switchgears and tap-changers. Transformer oil analysis is a service that gives the engineer ample time to arrange a production stop or an oil/unit change when it suits. The service has been developed specifically to apply to all types and sizes of transformers filled with mineral or silicon insulating oil. Using analytical programs the system interprets the lab results, identifies the type of fault and determines the probable time to failure, in some instances up to 4 years in advance of a developing problem.
Condition monitoring is essential for transformer maintenance, environmental legislation and Insurance assessments are encouraging routine testing of units.
