In vital areas of power plants, mineral oils are used as lubricating, cooling, insulating, sealing, cleaning and control fluids. Keeping the oil clean is therefore essential to ensure proper operation and to extend the life of transformer insulating oils. Alfa Laval transformer oil treatment systems help maintain the effectiveness and extend the life of transformer insulating oils.
On the pulse of transfer oil treatment
As a recognized leader in oil treatment, Alfa Laval is the ideal partner to help you to get more out of mineral oils. By efficiently removing impurities and extending the lifetime of lubricants, our solutions bring long-term protection and economy to industrial power installations. The Alfa Laval transformer oil treatment system, known as the Alfa Laval Oil Cleaning Module Vacuum or OCM-V, maintains the effectiveness and extends the life of transformer insulating oils.
Reliable, modular transformer insulating oil treatment
The Alfa Laval Oil Cleaning Module Vacuum (OCM-V) is a reliable, modular transfer oil treatment system. It is based on the combination of centrifugal separation to separate particles and water and vacuum dehydration to remove dissolved water and gases. This results in highly efficient oil treatment solutions that meet the stringent quality requirements for insulating oil. Modular and flexible, the OCM-V is available in a wide range of sizes, enabling easy selection of the right treatment system to meet your capacity requirements.
Safe and efficient transformer insulating oil treatment
The contents of solids, humidity, dissolved air and gas in the oil must be kept as low as possible in order to avoid a drastic decrease in the dielectric power. Any transformer insulating oil contamination severely affects the capacity of the oil to withstand high voltages without generating electrical discharges. Safe and efficient cleaning are therefore of utmost importance to the safety and efficiency of transformer operation. The Alfa Laval OCM-V effectively removes contaminant particles, solid impurities and free water as well as dissolved moisture and gases from any kind of mineral oils.
