Oxygen and air typically enter an oil system due to defect suction lines, insufficient de-aeration after assembly or inadequate tank design. In transformers, gas is a consequence of degraded cellulose in paper insulation.
The negative effects of oxygen and air in oil systems are either cavitation that leads to system break-down, or increased oil compressibility, which reduces operating precision. Both are critical in today's industrial processes, where equipment reliability and lifetime are in constant focus. In transformers, degraded paper insulation can lead to transformer fires.
CJC™ Vacuum Filters are the most effective and economical way to remove oxygen, air or gases from oil.
