We’re dedicated to ensuring your transformer performs optimally through the provision of a range of testing and maintenance services.
With an extensive base of specialised equipment including a 720kV AC HV test truck and a team of experts we are able to perform a range of high voltage tests onsite.
If oil needs to be removed from site we can arrange removal and transportation of oil and associated materials, including oil where PCB contamination was present.
Maintaining the chemical properties of transformer insulating oil reduces the risk of unplanned outages and decreases maintenance costs, while maximising transformer life and reliability.
Online transformer oil regeneration restores oil to an as-new condition, removing acidity, sludge and soluble oil decay from the transformer windings and cooling system, lowering operating temperatures and preventing recontamination of the oil.
Onsite oil regeneration of stored waste mineral oil enables the reuse of this valuable commodity, creating substantial cost savings, eliminating oil wastage and reducing your carbon footprint. Our oil regeneration technology uses fuller’s earth, an environmentally friendly medium which can be re-activated between 200 and 300 times.
We operate a number of single and multicolumn mobile regeneration plants, with the capacity to perform oil treatment on transformers ranging in size from a few hundred litres to in excess of 100,000 litres.
Our oil purification, heating and degassing plants operate with electric heaters, a high vacuum chamber and particle filters. These plants range in size from 500 litres per hour to 10,000 litres per hour.
This mobile plant can also be used for vacuum filling of new transformers or to top up oil following maintenance work.
Our portable filter unit is a complete filtration package on wheels. Designed for industrial applications, the unit uses filter cartridges with up to 5000 square inches (3.2m2) of filter media. This unit can be used for:
Insulating oil testing is a critical step in the management of transformer assets to optimise operational availability. Results are used to determine the suitability of the insulating oil for future use as well as indicate if a possible fault exists in the transformer.
Oil sampling is a cost effective way of determining the health of your transformer with no need for down time. Our oil sampling services are conducted by specialist personnel who have vast experience in the electrical industry. We can also train your staff in the standard methods of sampling.
Additionally, our insulating oil laboratory provides access to a wide range of insulating oil analysis methods to keep you informed on the overall health of your transformer. Our lab is NATA accredited and compliant with ISO/IEC17025 with all work performed to Australian and international standards.
Following testing we leverage our specialist expertise to analyse the results and deliver insights to maintain and improve the integrity of your transformer assets, optimising equipment performance over their lifecycle.
Overhauling or upgrading your transformer can be a cost and time effective alternative to capital expenditure of
Our transformer overhaul work is undertaken is our purpose built transformer facilities in NSW and QLD which have the capacity to overhaul transformers up to 75MVA, 132kV and weighing up to 80 tonnes.
Overhaul works can include:
We offer the SD Myers Course in Half-Century Transformer Maintenance, focusing on maintenance of the insulating system in fluid filled transformers. The course provides a foundation for intelligent transformer maintenance, from the basic design and construction through to life expectancy and extension.
This course is ideal for anyone who is responsible for the maintenance of liquid filled transformers, including electrical technicians and engineers, maintenance managers, engineering management, electrical contractors and service companies. Express your interest for one of our upcoming SDMyers courses today.
Verico Training Services (RTO No. 45425), a member of Ampcontrol Group, offers training, assessment and consultancy services for mining, engineering, electrical and civil construction industries.
Their courses include AS3800 Overhaul and Repair, Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas (EEHA), and other relevant industry courses. They can also develop customised training to suit your site.
