Dallas, TX, United States, 2009/08/07 - Shermco Industries tests for purity, moisture and decomposition of SF6 - Shermco.com.
Shermco Industries has recently acquired the DILO 3-036-R050 Breaker Analyzer to compliment the company’s existing testing abilities. The new equipment will help Shermco test for moisture, decomposition and purity of SF6.
The DILO 3-036-R050 Breaker Analyzer is a modular device that uses up to three test cards to evaluate specific contaminants. The base unit contains a data logger and all necessary hardware to make a physical connection to gas-insulated equipment.
The DILO 3-036-R050 Breaker Analyzer has the following features and benefits:
• Tests all three contaminants: purity, moisture and decomposition;
• Compact, light weight and low maintenance;
• Automatically validates readings;
• Delivers test results quickly (in less than 6 minutes);
• All tests values are stored on internal flash memory which can later be downloaded to a PC;
• Powers by AC or eight hours of battery life.
Pat Beisert, production manager of Shermco’s Engineering Services Division, says the new equipment will give Shermco immediate in-the-field information.
“SF6 is an important insulator, and impurities could cause unplanned, unscheduled electrical outages and equipment failure,” said Beisert. “Our new machine will verify the integrity of insulation conveniently for our customers by testing instantly on site rather than waiting for lab results.”
