Transformer Oil Conservator

09/06/2014 6:41 AM

Is it acceptable to manufacture large oil conservator into 3 welded sections each having 1meter dia and length of 1meter instead of having one 3meter length which is difficult to manufacture? bearing in mind the oil transformer have 30MVA, 132/11 KV

There should be no problem with that; it's just a trade-off of more welding versus ability to roll longer plate sections. (There will be two circumferential welds at the ends, anyway.)

It does rather depend upon two things, one being your organisation's internal procedures and the other your end client's specifications, which take precedence. I can't see either of them.
