Technician Talk | Transformer Oil Testing

Here at One Energy, we challenge everything, which means we regularly test everything. In today’s episode, Juan explains how we maintain and prolong the life of our transformers through oil testing.  

The transformers One Energy uses come in two types: dry and liquid-filled. Liquid-filled transformers use FR3 (non-toxic, recyclable, non-petroleum) fluid to insulate, repress arc, and act as a coolant to keep them sending voltage up or down efficiently. One Energy employs a Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) to proactively check the health and functionality of each transformer through independent testing.

Check out today’s Technician Talk to hear Juan describe the DGA technique and explain how One Energy uses it to extend a transformer’s use-life.
