The customer approached Ampcontrol after raising concerns about the condition of a transformer located at one of their sugar mill processing plants. Recent oil analysis results indicated occurrence of a serious T3 Thermal Fault – high temperature heating (> 700°C).
This course focuses on maintenance of the insulating system in fluid-filled transformers. It provides a foundation for intelligent transformer management from the basic design and construction to life expectancy and extension.
Ampcontrol in conjunction with SDMyers continue to lead the way with industry-recognized transformer maintenance and reliability training.
Ampcontrol is dedicated to ensuring your transformer performs optimally through the provision of a range of testing and maintenance services.
Utilising its extensive hire fleet, Ampcontrol is helping to ease congestion and connect communities by powering Sydney’s WestConnex, the largest transport infrastructure project in Australia.
Ampcontrol undertook the design, supply and commissioning of a complete electrical system from Ausgrid’s 11kV point of supply, to surface and underground facilities across the new M4 WestConnex tunnelling sites.
Containing: Transformers, Substations, Flameproof equipment, Switchgear, Starters, Switchrooms, Rubber Cables, XLPE Cables and Power Generation.
For nearly 50 years Ampcontrol has designed, manufactured and delivered integrated electrical solutions that improve safety, maintain efficient coal mining operations and meet stringent regulatory requirements. From our humble beginnings to being recognised as an industry leader in electrical solutions, we have consistently ensured our products meet the expectations of our customers in terms of safety, performance, quality, technical excellence, reliability, efficiency and cost effectiveness.
Engaging Ampcontrol as your asset management partner means continuity of technical support from the OEM and a commitment to making sure the equipment runs as it is supposed to, doesn’t breakdown, and is statutory compliant. We know the operational value of what we design and manufacture which is why we are focused on optimising the equipment you have invested in and ensuring operational availability.
Transformers are highly efficient electrical devices with long life cycles. A transformer built for high efficiency and minimal upkeep will have a higher initial capital cost. But in an environment of decreased capital spending, the economic benefits of purchasing a lower first cost standard transformer compared with a high efficiency unit are worth examining.
As Ampcontrol continues to tailor our approach to transformer design and manufacture, our transformer design engineers are increasingly incorporating ester dielectric fluids, a key technical and environmental advancement occurring in the Australian transformer market.
