Power

As processes for power production become more varied with:

- Electricity

- Geothermal

- Hydro  electricity 

- Wind farms 

- Wave/tidal energy recovery

- Solar energy recovery

The geographic situation of these facilities are often open to corrosion and contaminants, all having a large effect on the cost of production. As an example, offshore wind farms are exposed to constant salt water and salt mist causing corrosion of moving and serviceable metal parts, thus reducing the operational production efficiency and longevity of the installation.

Oxifree metal encapsulation and anti-oxidising properties will enable a greater economic return from energy production by extending serviceable longevity of working parts.  Oxifree will not only shield against corrosion but also protect against ingress of dust, pollen, mud, sand/grit and moisture.

The product is tested for the following:

Volume Resistance Testing: 500 volts over 60 seconds (megohmmeter tested)

Dielectric Voltage Breakdown: 2000 volts per second (13.5 KV per mm result)

 

Oxifree is also an insulating material, which opens up the usage within the electricity industry.

The following are examples of usage:

 

  • Ground mounted apparatus (LV Feeder pillars to insulate and protect connections, insulate HV bushings in switchgear. The main selling point for Oxifree is the ease of application and removal if a fault occurs or later inspection is needed.
  • Underground and overhead jointing procedures whereby Oxifree could be used to insulate and protect connections.
  • Weather shielding for outside switchgear. Oxifree could be utilized to stop water sitting on the equipment it would assist, as new switchgear is sometimes made of cheap metal which soon corrodes. At maintenance times the product can be easily removed and reapplied once all maintained.
