Cost Effective Methods for Repairing Electric Substation Power Transformer and Circuit Breaker Oil Leaks

This presentation will showcase a non-invasive repair technique that can be performed on oil filled transformers and circuit breakers whereby oil leaks can be repaired with apparatus still alive and in service carrying load. Repairs can be made without draining oil and disassembly of the transformer or CB, reducing the repair time to hours vs. the days required for major regasketing. This method can also apply to SF6 gas leaks too.
