Mobile Oil Services
We offer online and offline oil regeneration and filtration, along with:
Single and multi-column mobile oil regeneration plants.
Portable filtration units.
Vacuum drying and de-gassing machines for larger transformers.
Oil Handling, Management and Disposal
We can arrange for the removal and transportation of transformer oil and associated materials, along with:
Removal and transportation of oil where PCB contamination is present.
Retrofill transformers with mineral or natural ester fluids.
Replacing mineral oil from an existing transformer with ester dielectric fluid is a cost effective, safe, and environmentally friendly option to upgrade your transformer. We assess your requirements, advise on your retrofilling options, and undertake retrofilling in our certified transformer workshops. Benefits of retrofilling with ester oil include:
Reduced fire risk which improves safety and business continuity, as ester oil has high fire point.
Avoiding environmental contamination through either a minor leak or catastrophic failure, as Ester oil is bio-degradable.
Increased transformer life and delayed replacement due to superior water tolerance.
Reduced operating expenditure and asset reliability particularly in areas prone to wet conditions.
