The power grid connects power plants, transmission lines and distribution centers to supply electrical power to end users. Transformers are the critical part responsible for converting voltage levels either up or down to transmit electricity to consumers. The life of these transformers is expected to last over 25 years and keeping the integrity of the insulation system in the transformer is essential to achieving that longevity.
With the majority of power and distribution transformers being oil cooled, Saint-Gobain has tested multiple CHR® Electrical Insulation Tapes to better understand the relationship between our adhesive tapes and oil.
In this white paper you will:
- Learn the benefits of measuring insulation performance characteristics on oil when introducing a new material
- Dive into the key tests used to determine oil quality and the interaction of oil with adhesive tape
- Understand the results for both high and low aromatic oil on Saint-Gobain tested tapes
Discover the relationship between CHR Specialty Adhesive Tapes and the oil used to power our society.
