Reclosers

THE LEADER IN RECLOSER REPAIR


Emerald Transformer is an industry-leading provider of repair and maintenance services for oil circuit reclosers (OCRs). In addition, Emerald Transformer purchases surplus OCRs. By refurbishing and reselling idle units, we not only bring costs down for customers but also reduce waste and create a positive impact on the environment.

Our recloser repair specialists run every OCR through a series of rigorous tests to identify and diagnose issues and quickly formulate a course of action. These tests include:

  • Hi-pot (high potential) test
  • Contact resistance test
  • Control timing test

Once we’ve located the source of an OCR’s issue, we make the necessary repairs to get the unit back into service. These repairs can range from new control installation and any necessary control upgrades to other areas of service. Once we’ve completed the repair process, we run all testing again, including a trip check, to make sure your OCR unit is functioning properly.

To avoid the need for major transformer repair, we recommend regular OCR maintenance to keep your units running smoothly. Emerald Transformer can dispatch teams nationwide to test your units and perform the work required to ensure your OCRs stay up and operational.

I would like to thank Emerald for your assistance with the recent equipment recycling effort... We have disposed of three power transformers and thousands of gallons of oil...I also want to express my appreciation for your field service crew. The crew has been on property the last two weeks removing transformers from substations. The work was completed in a safe, timely and professional manner. Your crews have been on property for prior recycling efforts and I am always pleased with their efforts. I look forward to working with you to remove the remainder of the equipment by the end of the year.
