BASF Uses IntelliSaw To Help With Preventative Maintenance of Electrical Assets
BASF Manufacturing Plant implements proactive solution to solve humidity issues in Transformers, Bus Ducts, medium voltage Switchgear and MCC lineups. The inherent design of arc rated equipment limits air flow in and out of the gear. This can lead to excess humidity buildup within the gear. This buildup has the potential to cause electrical faults, and can cause significant unscheduled outages. This paper addresses how BASF implemented IntelliSAW technology that continuously monitors their critical electrical assets. BASF installed Temperature, Partial Discharge and Humidity sensors in the assets, with data transferred to the DeltaV. BASF was able to increase reliability, lower maintenance costs, and avoid catastrophic failures due to unforeseen indicators.
