System GC for Transformer Oil Gas Analysis (TOGAS)

Analysis of the dissolved gases in transformer insulation and cooling oil is critical to ensuring the safety and longevity of the electronics in which they are used. Over time, thermal and electrical stresses cause the formation of various gases dissolved within the oil. This gas chromatograph system is based on the GC-2014 and is equipped to analyze these trace dissolved gases by ASTM D3612B and D3612C.

Turnkey systems are currently available on the GC-2014 platform with TCD and MTN/FID integration. The TCD provides detection of the fixed gases. The MTN/FID combination provides detection of both CO and CO2 as well as the hydrocarbon components.
