  • Digital Technology to Transform Oil, Gas Hiring Practices

    The oil and gas industry’s effort to adopt digital technology not only will impact its daily operations, but its hiring needs as well. The oil and gas industry must pursue digital technology for two reasons: an aging workforce and increased focus on safety, said Mike Weast, IT regional vice president with professional staffing firm Addison Group, in a statement to Rigzone. As the majority ...

  • Small is beautiful

    The book Small is Beautiful by economist E F Schumacher was originally published at the time of the 1973 oil crisis. To quote Wikipedia “It is often used to champion small, appropriate technologies that are believed to empower people more, in contrast with phrases such as bigger is better”. I think these words could usefully be applied to the challenges facing the energy industry ...

  • Transformer Oil Hydrotreating case study

    Hydrogenation of waste transformer oil (electrical insulating oils) can produce an oil product that is far better in quality and yield in comparison with fixed bed clay adsorption or reaction with sodium metal. This is proven at Sequoia- client’s facility in Midwestern USA. The 5 million gallon/year throughput naphthenic oil hydrotreater produces oil free of PCBs (polychlorobiphenyls ...

  • Methods of oil/fuel analysis

    PC GlobeCore can propose you to make a reclaiming test of yours example of fuel (oil) to verify the possibility of clean it. If the oil is contaminated and not suitable for use, filtration can be recommended. Or, you can also make this test by yourself using our laboratory/test-bench transformer oil vacuum regeneration system UVR. The regenerated samples exceeded yours expectations. Average ...

  • Transformer oil quality control

    It is impossible to ensure reliability and longevity of energy systems without controlling the quality of transformer oil. Recent experience shows that approximately 30% of transformer oil, filled in power transformers, has deteriorated to the point when it becomes a risk factor. This is caused both to natural degradation of oil in operation due to thermal oxidation aging, and contamination with ...

  • On-site regeneration of transformer oil

    Regeneration of transformer oil at the transformer’s location is an important preventive measure of transformer servicing.   Transformer life time is, in essence, the life time of its insulation system. The most widely used insulation is liquid insulation (transformer oils) and solid insulation (paper, i.e. cellulose insulation). The oil provides for at ...

  • Methods of fine oil purification

    High degree of oil purity is a normal requirement of modern hydraulic and lubrication systems. However, oil manufacturers sometimes fail to ensure the required oil purity, hence the need to purify the oil before operation One of the instruments of increasing efficiency of energy generation and consumption is reduction of resources consumed for its production with simultaneous increase ...

  • Time to replace your transformer?

    Modern oil transformers are not the strongest part of the connection between energy producers and consumers. Transformers have no moving or friction parts, their efficiency of voltage transformation is close to 99%, therefore their life time extends, or rather can be extended well over several decades. Extending transformer lifetime is the one and only most important strategy ...

  • Why regenerate transformer oil?

    Article contain the information about the most important definition in transformer oil treatment. Its include terms such as transformer oil regeneration, insulation oil regeneration, purification of oils, degassing of oil, oil treatment, filtration by Fuller's earth, desludging, etc.  Regenerating the oil or other insulating medium in a transformer is probably one of the few environmentally ...

  • Importance of synthetic blend oil change

    All synthetic oils are producing using chemical synthesis process, reaches high homogeneity of a product and maximum chemical and thermal stability of properties. Uses of expensive and difficult technologies and components, with use of expensive source of raw materials are set the higher cost of oil. Synthetic and mineral oils are different from each other by a structure of a molecular basis. In ...

  • Series KPH transformer oil regeneration device

    Application: Series KPH transformer oil regeneration device use of a special active clay for purifying and regenerating the unqualified transformer oil, switch oil, mutual inductor, it also can be used as absorption unit for treating low viscosity lube oils. Series KPH can remove acid, free carbon, oxides, pigment and particles, it dose not affect insulating oil ingredients and anti-oxidation. ...

  • Waste-to-energy: Garbage to gold: putting waste conversion at the center of the clean fuel market

    As the U.S. explores new technologies to transform our energy supply and reduce our dependence on foreign oil, one of the most exciting clean energy solutions has the potential to transform the waste handling industry as well. Cellulosic ethanol, a clean burning advanced biofuel, can be derived from a wide variety of renewable, nonfood sources, including municipal solid waste (MSW) and ...

  • The charcoal vision: a win–win–win scenario for simultaneously producing bioenergy, permanently sequestering carbon, while improving soil and water quality

    Processing biomass through a distributed network of fast pyrolyzers may be a sustainable platform for producing energy from biomass. Fast pyrolyzers thermally transform biomass into bio-oil, syngas, and charcoal. The syngas could provide the energy needs of the pyrolyzer. Bio-oil is an energy raw material (17 MJ kg–1) that can be burned to generate heat or shipped to a refinery for processing ...

  • Modelling oil degradation in electric transformer oil under typical loads

    In testing transformer oils for durability, it is desirable to use typical transformer operating conditions with appropriate allowances for factor of safety against temperature and voltage. The kinetics of degradation of used type II transformer oil with original flash point of 148?C, pour point of 51?C, and water content of 4 ppm was investigated. Assuming that the oil temperature in models Pr01 ...
