Method of sampling insulating liquids

IEC 60475:2011 is applicable to the procedure to be used for insulating liquids in delivery containers and in electrical equipment such as power and instrument transformers, reactors, bushings, oil-filled cables, oil-filled tank-type capacitors, switchgear and load tap changers. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows: - withdrawal of askarels; - addition of recommendations concerning general health, safety and environmental protection; - additional details regarding the sampling of oil from electrical equipment, using various types of sampling devices appropriate for the different types of oil tests to be performed in the laboratory.

Méthode d'échantillonnage des liquides isolants

La CEI 60475:2011 décrit le mode opératoire d'échantillonnage à utiliser dans des liquides isolants dans les récipients de livraison et les appareils électriques tels que les transformateurs de puissance et de mesure, les réacteurs, les traversées de transformateurs, les câbles à huile fluide, les condensateurs de puissance, l'appareillage de connexion et les changeurs de prise en charge. Les modifications principales par rapport à l'édition précédente sont les suivantes: - retrait des askarels; - ajout de recommandations en matière de protection générale de la santé, de la sécurité et de l'environnement on été ajoutées en tant qu'Introduction; détails supplémentaires concernant l'échantillonnage de l'huile dans les appareils électriques, à l'aide de différents types de matériels d'échantillonnage correspondant aux différents types d'essais à l'huile à réaliser en laboratoire.

Metoda vzorčenja izolacijskih tekočin

Ta mednarodni standard se uporablja za postopek za izolacijske tekočine v transportnih vsebnikih in električni opremi, kot so močnostni in instrumentni transformatorji, dušilke, skoznjiki, oljni tlačni kabli, oljni kondenzatorji za nihajni krog, stikalne naprave in bremenski odcepni preklopniki (LTC). Ta standard se uporablja za tekočine z viskoznostjo, ki je pri temperaturi vzorčenja manjša od 1500 mm2/s (ali cSt). Uporablja se za mineralna in nemineralna olja (kot so sintetični estri, naravni estri, rastlinska olja ali silikoni).
