Transformers are used in electrical power distribution grid to control the voltage supply to be made useable by power consumers. Transformers are mostly pole mounted or fixed on concrete pads from where electrical power is supplied to households, industries and other consumers.
Mineral oil is a very critical ingredient in transformers that is used to cool the device and avoid power fluctuations. Any leakage of oil from the transformer can result in overheating and functional failure, which can turn into a fatal disaster. Hence, to ensure that there are no oil leaks from the transformer, rubber gaskets
and Inflatable seals
have a very crucial role to play in safely holding the oil within the transformer.
Further, efficient sealing is necessary to prevent the entry of moisture inside the transformer. Presence of humidity or moisture within the transformer will lead to early ageing of the insulating material, resulting in early failure of the transformer. Therefore, having an effective weather resistant gasket
is important to improve the life of the transformer.
