GE releases new online moisture monitoring system for power transformers

Sponsored by

ATLANTA, Ga., June 28, 2002 -- GE Power Systems' AQUAOIL™ 400 moisture-in-oil analyzer puts critical information in the hands of power transformer operators, helping to avert failures and ensure optimal operating efficiencies.

The latest in its line of online moisture monitoring systems, the AQUAOIL 400 moisture-in-oil analyzer has been released by GE for use by electric utilities and large industrial companies in helping to keep power transformers from failing.

Carolyn Shockley, general manager of the Substation Automation Solutions business for GE Energy Services, stated, "GE is very pleased to bring this next-generation monitoring system to market. The AQUAOIL 400 is smaller, lighter, faster and more competitively priced than its predecessor, and fits well with our overall strategy of developing services and tools that optimize our customers' ability to proactively manage their substation operations."

The AQUAOIL 400 analyzer continuously monitors the humidity and temperature of the transformer's insulation system, using sensors to detect the presence of moisture in the insulating oil. The unit immediately alerts users to potentially damaging conditions arising from a sudden increase in moisture that can weaken the transformer's insulating structure and cause it to fail prematurely.

The AQUAOIL 400 is available as a stand-alone unit for field installation on a transformer valve, or as part of a comprehensive transformer management system.

GE Power Systems (www.gepower.com) is a supplier of power generation technology, energy services and management systems, with 2001 revenues exceeding $20 billion.

GE Power Systems provides equipment, services and management solutions across the power generation, oil and gas, distributed power and energy rental industries.
