Oil Testing Equipment
Oil Breakdown Voltage Test Set / Oil Dielectric Test Set (OTS Series – OTS100AF_80AF_60AF)
- Laboratory instruments for measuring insulating oil breakdown voltage.
- Lock in precision – oil vessel with lockable adjustment.
- Bright 3.5” colour display.
- Suitable for mineral, ester and silicon oils.
- Trip detection circuit with direct measurement of voltage and current.
- Ultra fast (< 10 µs) HV switch off time.
Megger’s automatic laboratory Oil Testing Equipment sets perform accurate breakdown voltage tests on mineral, ester and silicon insulating liquids. Moulded test vessels give repeatable results with lock in precision electrode gap setting adjustment wheels. The transparent, shielded lid and large test chamber enable easy access to the test vessel.
All three laboratory models are fitted with a 12 key alphanumeric keypad to facilitate entry of test ID, filenames, notes etc. Alpha characters are entered by repetitive pressing on a key, the same way as text is entered modern cellular telephones.
Oil PPM / Moisture Meter (offline) KF875_KFLAB MKII
- Coulometric Karl Fischer titrimetry.
- KF875 optimized for insulating oil with an SG of 0.875, completely portable.
- KF-LAB MkII offers greater flexibility, versatility and sample data input than the KF875; also completely portable.
- KF-LAB MkII analyzes materials with an SG between 0.6 & 1.4, plus insulating oils with an SG of 0.875.
Over 20 years experience has led to the development of the Megger KF875 and KF-LAB MkII Coulometric Karl Fischer Oil Testing Equipment Sets designed to determine moisture in oil, to provide highly accurate results on-site. The KF875 and KF-LAB MkII are highly portable instruments, complete with integral printer and carrying case, are easy to use and provide highly accurate results.
Oil Testing Equipment is optimized for testing insulating oils with a specific gravity of 0.875, the Megger KF875 simply requires the operator to press one button and inject a 1ml sample into the test cell. The simple ‘one touch’ operation makes the KF875 so easy to use that it requires no specialist knowledge or training to use it effectively. Results are presented on the instrument display and on the integral printer in both micrograms of water and in milligrams per kilogram (parts per million, ppm).
The KF-LAB MkII Oil Testing Equipment allows the titration of samples with a range of specific gravities from 0.60 to 1.40 and also permits the use of different sample sizes. The KF-LAB MkII also has a default setting optimized for analyzing insulating oils with an SG of 0.875. This means it can be used to measure water content in a variety of different materials but is also easy to set up for transformer insulating oils.

- Efficient oil fill and integrated automated oil drain facility
- IEC 60247 Innovative Test Cell – easy to assemble and clean
- Stores up to 50 records on-board and download to PC
- Compact and lightweight (22 kg / 48.5 lbs.)
The Oil Tan Delta (OTD) is a laboratory instrument, which measures the Tan Delta, Resistivity and Relative Permittivity of insulating liquids. These tests give a wider picture of the overall quality of the insulating oil, and will indicate if there is any contamination. Megger has developed features of the OTD to ensure that productivity levels within laboratories are maximised.
The microprocessor controlled inductive heater means that there is uniformity of temperature throughout the cell, in compliance with IEC 60247, and for cooling a fan effectively speeds up the cell cooling time. The instrument has a temperature measuring range of 10 to 110 ºC, with an accuracy of ± 1 ºC. It can be set to preheat before testing takes place. The automated oil drain facility negates the need to move the oil vessel.
User safety is paramount and with this in mind, Megger have designed independent and dual redundant high voltage cut-off circuitry. If for any reason the user needs to abort the test, this can be done so by pressing any key, immediately terminating the test and removing the high voltage.
