Power Transformers

Power Transformers

Online monitoring of moisture or hydrogen in the insulating oil of power transformers provides a real-time view of transformer condition. Making sure the condition is kept at an optimal level is key to efficient transformer operation.


SF6 Gas Insulated Equipment

SF6 Gas Insulated Equipment

The electric power industry uses SF6 to insulate switchgears, circuit breakers and other equipment used in electricity transmission and distribution. To ensure the integrity of SF6 gas as an insulator, the amount of water vapor in SF6 gas should be kept to a minimum. Moisture may increase the formation of unwanted secondary decomposition products, which can lead to arcing and equipment failure. Vaisala offers convenient solutions for online monitoring of SF6 gas.


Turbine Inlet Air

Turbine Inlet Air

​With reliable humidity monitoring utility operators can cool and compress inlet air, maximizing the power generated without risking condensation. Vaisala offers reliable, stable and accurate humidity sensors for the power industry.


Hydrogen Cooled Generators

Hydrogen Cooled Generators

​Vaisala’s intrinsically safe HMT360 humidity and temperature transmitter series is ideal for monitoring dryer performance. The sensor can be installed directly into a pressurized pipeline and provides measurements that show if dry hydrogen is being fed into the generator.


Compressed Air

Compressed Air

​One of the most important measurements to ensure a clean and dry compressed air system is dew point. With accurate dewpoint measurement you can reduce energy consumption by up to 20%. Vaisala offers a variety of dewpoint sensors ready for any compressed air application.


Lubrication Oil

Lubrication Oil

All machines with lubricating oil systems can benefit from the monitoring of moisture content in the oil. Water deteriorates oils performance, whether used as a lubricant, coolant, insulator or for other purposes. High moisture content increases the risk of corrosion, overheating, machine malfunctions and other costly problems. Vaisala offers sensors and systems to monitor lubrication oil in power plants and renewable energy generation facilities.
