DISSOLVED GAS ANALYSIS
Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) is widely accepted as the most reliable tool for the earliest detection of incipient faults in fluid-filled electrical apparatus. Analysis of the quantity of each of the fault gases present in the fluid will identify fault processes such as corona, sparking, overheating and arcing.
QUALITY ASSESSMENT FOR DIELECTRIC FLUIDS
To ensure safety, continuity of service and efficient low-cost maintenance, insulating fluids must be regularly monitored with a program of physical, chemical & electrical testing.
The EPA has designated Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) an environmental hazard, concluding PCBs are both toxic and persistent.
FURANIC COMPOUNDS IN INSULATING FLUIDS
AVO's Furan analysis is a non-invasive alternative to expensive procedures that take your transformer units offline. Our procedure is based on the determination of oil-soluble cellulose decomposition products.
FAULT, WEAR AND CONTAMINATION METALS
Metal analysis pinpoints the location of faults within transformers and provides other vital information about a transformer’s operation.
METHANOL AND ETHANOL TESTING
Methanol offers the greatest potential in in ageing measurement of oil-impregnated insulation.
