Eliminating Risk with "Pinpoint" Precision

The analysis of insulating oils provides information about the oil, but also enables the detection of other possible problems, including contact arcing, aging insulating paper and other latent faults and is a crucial part of a cost-efficient electrical maintenance program.

 By measuring the physical and chemical properties of oil, in addition to the concentrations of certain dissolved gases, a number of problem conditions associated with either the oil or the transformer (and other electrical distribution equipment) can be determined. The following are some tests performed by Pinpoint’s oil analysis service:

 

  • Moisture content
  • Acid number
  • Dialectric Strength
  • Power Factor
  • Disolved Gas Analysis (DGA)
