Transformers are a critical and expensive component of power systems. Due to the long lead time for repair of and replacement of transformers, a major goal of transformer protection is limiting the damage to a faulted transformer. Some protection functions, such as over excitation protection and temperature-based protection may aid this goal by identifying operating conditions that may cause transformer failure.
The risk of Overheat and/or Fire conditions on Power Transformers and Generators remain high – even where regular maintenance programmes are operated and where shielding, grounding and lightning arrestor devices are installed. We were tasked with providing a solution for easy temperature checking.
One of the longest-established power companies in the world, providing an efficient and reliable electricity supply to its half a million customers, use Thermax Irreversible temperature labels on the outer tank casing of the transformer to enable easy and reliable temperature checks.
Other Case Studies
WarmMark thermal indicators are as easy to use as they are to read. The dialysis center simply adds the WarmMark temperature card to the box containing the blood samples and ships it as usual. When the package arrives, lab technicians have visual confirmation showing whether the samples exceeded safe thermal thresholds and, if so, for how long. Then they know what steps to take to protect the integrity of the results. read more
SpotSee’s Thermax® Encapsulated Indicators show medical personnel at a glance whether temperatures within the packaging exceeded safe temperature thresholds. With this go/no go clarity, medical professionals know whether the suture can go into inventory or should be discarded. read more
Impact indicators have long been used to monitor medical equipment in transit. However, an RFID enabled impact indicator is just as valuable after medical devices are in service. The RFID will alert teams to possible damage due to impact as well as track equipment in use, lowering the loss of due to misplaced or stolen devices. read more
