Of­fer­ing a green al­ter­na­tive to your oil chal­lenges

So­lu­tion Avoid blow-ups

AL­TER­NA­TIVE: The VBC-3000 ma­chine is an al­ter­na­tive to re­con­di­tion­ing your oil. THE oil in your trans­form­ers de­te­ri­o­rates with t i me. I t needs t o be re­placed or reused, oth­er­wise it will al­low an in­ter­nal short cir­cuit, caus­ing an ex­plo­sion.

To re­place the oil com­pletely of­ten costs up to R100 000 and the trans­former will be out of com­mis­sion for two or three days.

The green al­ter­na­tive is to re­con­di­tion the oil with our VBC-3000 ma­chine. This ma­chine, on a dou­ble-axle trailer which can be towed with a stan­dard one-ton bakkie, is parked next to the trans­former. Two flex­i­ble hoses are cou­pled to the trans­former and in­ter­nal pumps cir­cu­late the oil through the VBC-3000 con­tin­u­ously, while the trans­former is on line, so there is no down time.

The oil is pol­ished, fil­tered, de-gassed and dried to bet­ter-than-new spec­i­fi­ca­tion.

This needs to be done at least once in five years to avoid blow-ups. The ma­chine is avail­able on a rental or out­right pur­chase.
