Cleaning at Substations in NY with the Ice blasting process.
With this process we can clean reactors , switchgear and transformers. Dry Ice Blasting uses compress C02 (dry ice). As the frozen pellets are propelled through our specialized gear the C02 evaporates on contact thus cleaning the surface without damaging the sub surfaces. This allows us to quickly clean any equipment without any waste materials to clean up. In some cases we can use dry ice on operating equipment further reducing plant and equipment downtime. In either case dry ice provides a superior clean, zero waste and eco-friendly process. It’s also more affordable than traditional cleaning processes.
A substation is the point in the T&D system at which the generated voltage is either stepped up for transmission or stepped down for distribution. A Reactor is an application for an inductor. Inductors oppose any change in current. A reactor is used to ‘slow down’ (a simplification) any significant change in current arising from, possibly a short-circuit fault. Reactors are also used for power-factor correction. If a transmission line has a load with a permanently poor power factor, reactors would be connected at the receiving end to correct the power factor and thus reduce the current and the power losses in the resistance of the line. An auxiliary transformer is used to supply low voltage for AC power system inside substation such as lighting ,air conditioners and other AC supply system and DC power system such as protection relays, batteries, SCADA & telecom system and other DC supply system.
