The model and the example that were kept in mind during development and construction of this Unit were the machines. transformer-insulating oil is absorbing moisture over its free surface in the expansion vessel and it becomes polluted by absorbing dirty particles. gear pump) had to be modified to improve the operation of the Unit and to eliminate shortcomings noticed in the operation of some other machines of this kind.Belgrade BRIEFLY ABOUT THE UNIT The Unit S1000 is designed for filtering. degassing and dehydration of insulating oil to the extent depending on moisture content. BRIEFLY ABOUT THE PROCESS The electrical properties of insulating oil (such as puncture voltage and coefficient of losses) can be considerably improved by its filtering. Some of the components (such as fine and coarse filters. as it is often already polluted in the transporting barrels and it may absorb too much moisture in contact with air. degassing and dehydration. oil conditioning has to eliminate the following: solid particles free and dissolved water dissolved gasses The puncture voltage can be considerably increased and the coefficient of loses tangδ improved by filtering. fibers.KONDIC DOO .

By means of other two thermostats. any damage of oil is excluded. The heating process is thereby gradually accomplished and. e. Control thermostats Transformer oil filtering. Oil is heated indirectly by means of electric heating elements insulated from oil by pipes and air. Together with the thermal control (details of which are given in the following text) this allows heating of oil in individual stages.g. Safety valve 5. In addition. easy to open and clean. for each heating stage there is one 2. both heating stages can be controlled.
