Kuhlman to provide installation and services for transformer venting unit

Kuhlman Electric and Transformer Protection recently announced that they’ve established a joint marketing agreement, in which Kuhlman will provide installation and services—new and retrofit—for the transformer protector in the United States. The agreement will provide utility customers with application, design, hardware, and installation support for retrofit applications from a single source.

The system is a passive mechanical system that can be applied to all transformers from 0.1MVA and up. It allows users to depressurize the tank within seconds, avoid contact between oxygen and evacuated explosive gases, separate gases from oil, channel the gases away from the transformer environment, reduce explosive gases, and secure the transformer.
