50FD Version A Fault Detector
Transformer defects including: partial discharge, loose parts, defective tap changers, flow restriction and turbulent flow in oil cooling pumps.
Air, Steam, Gas and Vacuum Leaks, Valve Leaks, Faulty Steam Traps, Worn or Dry Bearings, Tube Leaks inside Power & Recovery Boilers.
Analyze substation transformers for defects to avoid potentially dangerous conditions caused by partial discharge. Listen for the mechanical noises produced by loose parts and the destructive arching in tap changers. Monitor the oil cooling pumps for laminar flow, turbulent flow and flow restriction. Set up a predictive maintenance schedule to periodically test transformers to prevent costly maintenance and maintain safe operating conditions.
