Description of Services:Transformers accepted at the facility generally have been pre-tested for PCB content by the utility owner. In order to be accepted for processing, units must contain oil with PCB < 50 ppm. In practice, oil concentration is usually below 43 ppm to allow a margin for analysis error. Acceptable units are individually tagged with PCB results.

Equipment refurbishment includes oil draining, case cutting, repair, sandblasting or sanding and painting, replacement of windings, filling with virgin transformer oil (a vacuum draw system is used at the fill port to remove all air bubbles) and high voltage impulse testing. Rebuilt transformers are normally sent back to the owner; units not returnable due to specific owner requirements (i.e. transformers used must not be > 10 years old) are kept in stock for sale to other utilities. Drained non-repairable units are sent offsite for steel scrap recycling. Transformer oil (non-hazardous) is sent offsite for recycling.
