Onsite Transformer Repair
IT’S HARD TO KNOW WHAT CONDITION YOUR TRANSFORMER IS IN UNLESS YOU HAVE IT CHECKED.
If you don’t regularly maintain a transformer, it will definitely let you know when there’s a problem. By then, it’s too late and you could have major power interruption issues on your hands.
Instel’s Transformer Field Services Team is a highly-specialized unit trained and equipped to protect your electrical assets by inspecting, cleaning, and repairing your transformers quickly and effectively.
Our Transformer Services Trailer is a fully-outfitted workshop with mobile capabilities that let us roll up onsite and get right to work.
Internal & External Inspections
Oil Quality Sampling
Load Tap Changer Replacement
Dissolved Gas Analysis
When the Instel team arrives, we conduct a full inspection of the transformer housing – inside and out. The Transformer Field Services Trailer has full pumping capabilities that let our highly-trained team repair liquid leaks immediately, pump out old or degraded insulating oil, and top it off with replacement fluid (FR3, silicone, or mineral oil).
How do you know when your transformer’s insulation needs changing? The Instel Transformer Field Service Team has the ability to conduct a full Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) and quality sampling of your transformer’s lubricant to determine whether or not the fluid has degraded to the point where it needs to be replaced.
Instel’s Transformer Field Services Team will check your transformer’s gaskets to ensure proper sealing and prevent fluid leaks. If there’s a gasket problem that requires parts, our trailer already has a fully stocked inventory of replacements on hand. We can even fabricate replacement gaskets onsite if needed.
Transformer bushings are insulated devices that facilitate the passage of the electrical conductor through the transformer. Instel recommends regular inspection and replacement of worn bushings to ensure the integrity of the insulation and the safe operation of the transformer.
Winding resistance testing measures the microhms of each individual winding of the transformer. This testing can be carried out as a routine test and also as a field test.
Used to determine the condition of the transformer itself based on the amount of gasses and the ratio of gasses given off under load conditions, dissolved gas analysis can be used as a maintenance tool or a troubleshooting tool.
