Hydrocal 1009

The HYDROCAL 1009 is a permanently installed multi-gas-in-oil analysis system with transformer monitoring functions. It individually measures, Moisture in Oil (H2O) and the key gases Hydrogen (H2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH4), Acetylene (C2H2), Ethylene (C2H4), Ethane (C2H6) and Oxygen (O2) dissolved in transformer oil. As Hydrogen (H2) is involved in nearly every fault of the insulation system of power transformers and Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a sign of an involvement of the cellulosic / paper insulation the presence and increase of Acetylene (C2H2) and Ethylene (C2H4) further classifies the nature of a fault as overheating, partial discharge or high energy arcing. Oxygen (O2) can be a sign of excessive ageing or leakages within the sealing of hermetic transformers. The device can serve as a compact transformer monitoring system by the integration / connection of other sensors present on a transformer via its optional analog inputs:

  • 4 Analog inputs 0/4 ... 20mADC
  • 6 Analog inputs 0/4 ... 20mAAC +20% or 0 ... 80 VAC +20%
