MR’s online transformer drying system available worldwide

Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen (MR) has made its Expiotech moisture management and smart drying system available worldwide.

The new drying system enables transformer operators to optimize the lifetime of power transformers by reducing and maintaining the paper moisture at an optimum target value, while preserving the winding pressure at a safe level, all with the transformer remaining energized and in normal service, according to the manufacturer.

The new system is able to extend the transformer lifetime by up to 20 years and reduce the risk of failure.

The system has 15 years of experience in South Africa and over 600 transformers dried.
