VACUTAP® VM® replaces old D tap-changer in Brazil


New order for the Premium Service Provider (PSP) of MR do Brasil. A Brazilian steel corporation has ordered a complete service package – exchange of the old OILTAP® D for a VACUTAP® VM®, replacement of the motor drive MA7 with a TAPMOTION® ED and equipment with various Messko products.

At the start of the service call, the PSP replaced the old D tap-changer from 1972 with a VACUTAP® VM, MR’s latest vacuum tap-changer. The old motor drive was then removed and a TAPMOTION® ED with a Messko MTraB® dehydrating breather installed. Finally, the transformer was equipped with a MPreC® pressure relief device and an oil level indicator.
