We recently took a behind-the-scenes look into Vaisala's DGA lab. The DGA laboratory is a world-class facility, responsible for developing entirely new methods and workflows for analyzing gas solubilities in different mineral oils and other insulation liquids. 

At its heart, research is born out of pure curiosity — the applications come later. That's why Vaisala employs tens of scientists in over 40 laboratories to conduct fundamental research. View the video above to learn more about what really happens behind one of the lab doors.

The secret behind Vaisala's advanced online DGA

The DGA laboratory's work supports the performance development of our top-of-the-line instruments, such as the Optimus™ OPT100 online DGA monitor.

Their comprehensive work in evaluating measurement uncertainties has been greatly helpful in making Vaisala's methods robust and reliable. 

For our scientists, the work is all about making a leap into knowledge. The lab's work, just like everything we do at Vaisala, is based on the thought that innovations don’t simply happen — they are the result of scientific research. And research never stops.

That's Robust Science.
