Transformer Explosion


Transformer Explosion and Fire

  • An arc is generated due to internal fault in the Transformer.
  • High energy flows through transformer.
  • Leading to decomposition of insulation/oil at high temperature.
  • Top oil surface attains temperature higher than ignition point.
  • Huge thermal energy is generated thereby emitting combustible gases.
  • Pressure built-up resulting in tank rupture normally at top cover.
  • Hot oil when comes in contact with the oxygen catches fire.
  • After explosion during the fire, conservator oil spreads in the surrounding further aggravating the fire .

Solution :

  • Use our N2 Injection transformer Explosion and Fire Protection System.
