The TDS® transformer dry-out system incorporates all the necessary features to allow a transformer to remain in-service while moisture from its insulation is effectively removed. The system is safe with several alarm features that shut the system off, isolating it from the transformer,
in the event of any abnormal signal. The TDS5-1 unit provides a non-intrusive, cost effective and convenient method of maintaining transformers in a dry condition. In addition, once the transformer is dried, the system can be retrofitted with Activated Alumina cartridges to reduce acidity in the transformer oil. This flexibility allows increased oil processing application compared to heat and vacuum systems.
