Oil & Petroleum Testing

Oil & Petroleum Testing solutions offered comprise a wide range of tests for checking quality standards of oil as well as petroleum products. Among many tests, one that is performed includes Ferrography that is based on separating ferrous wear particles from a lubricant as well as arranging according to size. This is done with analysis through microscope where Ferro gram helps in providing information for identification of wear particle types as well as describes wear mode generating the particles. Apart from this, some of the other tests that are performed include:

NABL accredited Sigma performs oil testing by checking its quality, purity, contamination by Oil Condition Monitoring , Lubricants Testing, Transformer Oil Testing, Crude Oil Quality Testing, Edible Fats and Oils Testing as per recognized industry standards such as ISO, IP, FDA and others.

Transformer Oil Testing

Transformer oils are subject to electrical and mechanical stresses while a transformer or other electrical distribution equipment is in operation. The analysis of insulating oils provides information about the oil, but also enables the detection of other possible problems, including contact arcing, aging insulating paper and other latent faults and is an indispensable part of a cost-efficient electrical maintenance program.

Though the failure risk of a transformer and other oil-filled electrical equipment is small, when failures occur, they inevitably lead to high repair costs, long downtime and possible safety risks. By accurately monitoring the condition of the oil, suddenly occurring faults can be discovered in time and outages can potentially be avoided.

Properties of Transformer or Insulating Oil

Some specific parameters of transformer or insulating oil should be considered to determine the serviceability of that oil-

The Furan and DGA tests are specifically not for determining the quality of transformer oil, but for determining any abnormalities in the internal windings of the transformer or the paper insulation of the transformer, which cannot be otherwise detected without a complete overhaul of the transformer.
