Fire Damage Brings
Transformer Back to Life
The transformer’s leads were melted, which prohibited testing, but the interior of the transformer looked clean. In addition, the core and coils passed testing and did not show any damage, so Jordan Transformer suggested a remodel rather than a total replacement. Jordan engineers sandblasted the tank and installed a new LTC and controls, new wiring, and new bushings, gauges, fans, and conduit. The team of Jordan experts also cleaned, pressure checked, and painted the radiators.
Because Jordan was able to recondition the transformer, the unit was back in service quickly and is still running. This is one of two projects for this client on which Jordan Transformer was able to recondition a transformer, saving the client money and delivering enhanced performance.
