Water, dirt, deterioration from oxidation and sludge all contribute to the breakdown of transformer oil protection. Since the cooling capacity of the transformer depends on the oil, its quality must be maintained; therefore it’s important to evaluate it regularly and reconditioning the oil when necessary. To avoid expensive and unnecessary maintenance, the testing must be performed quickly and accurately. PDC Laboratories maintains rigorously controlled laboratory conditions along with specially trained and experienced chemists to assure the accuracy of your oil tests.

PDC Laboratories also provides analyses of soil, groundwater and building debris working cooperatively with environmental engineers to support the decommissioning of power facilities, maintaining the safe and proper handling of samples taken during the decommissioning process.
