Low-Frequency Drying Equipment for Fully Automatic Transformer Production
The drying process of the insulation material of distribution transformers under vacuum is significantly accelerated by the use of a low-frequency heating. With specifically developed converters, HEDRICH uses sinusoidal low-frequency heating currents to meet the high requirements for the heating conditions caused by the vacuum.
The HEDRICH low-frequency equipment concept is expandable from the addition of individual heating units to the upgrade by another production line. So a basic equipment can be subsequently extended without need to replace the essential components like heating units, control system and vacuum pumping unit.
Checked and Tested
Hermetically closed transformers have to meet increased requirements for the sealing of the transformer housing. The HEDRICH pressure testing and leakage detection equipment checks the seals, their seat, the housing and the welding seams by means of cyclically changing and constant overpressure phases. At the same time the varying overpressures enhance the impregnation quality.
