MESSKO® MTRAB® 2.5

Maintenance-free dehydrating breathers

Ever longer operating times and ever higher current densities lead to constantly increasing demands on operating equipment. The maintenance-free MTRAB® dehydrating breathers continuously dehumidify and monitor the breathing cycle of power transformers - in all climatic zones. They regenerate themselves. This ensures maximum operating times and safety, and also massively reduces costs. The MTRAB® devices have been proven over 90,000 times worldwide. The intelligent algorithm ensures that the IEC 60076-22-7 standard is complied with at all times.

The MTRAB® 2.5 DB100 with alpha-control is a condition-controlled system, recommended for use on tap changers, arc suppression coils, air-filled cable terminal boxes and traction transformers. The desiccant is regenerated depending on the condition. Silica gel fill level: 1,1 kg with α-control.

Good to know: The main function of dehydrating breathers is to dehumidify the ambient air. As a result of the thermal compression of the insulation medium, the ambient air flows from the environment to the expansion tank of the transformer and tap changer (referred to as inhalation). During inhalation, moisture must be prevented from penetrating into the equipment with the air flow, as this reduces the insulating effect due to the contamination of the insulating medium.

The MTRAB® 2.5 DB100T with beta-control is a self-learning system, recommended for use on transformers with cyclic loads (network transformers, phase shifters, reactors). In addition to monitoring the humidity, the device determines a time window in which the oil conservator exhales and the desiccant is regenerated. Silica gel fill level: 1,1 kg with β-control.

The MTRAB® 2.5 DB200G with gamma-control is ideal for special applications, such as cavern transformers, furnace transformers and GSU machine transformers with aperiodic breathing behaviors. If the humidity level in the air flowing towards the transformer exceeds the standardized value, the desiccant chambers are regenerated in sequence. Silica gel fill level: 2 x 2,2 kg with γ-control.

The MTRAB® 2.5 is equipped with a data logger of the latest generation as standard (optional software needed). The MTRAB® MSET software allows the device function and processes (dehumidification and regeneration) to be monitored and analyzed at all times. This means that it ensures additional safety through equipment monitoring. Long-term analysis: Benefit from the key operating parameter – residual humidity – being recorded over a time period of up to 10 years. 

MTRAB® MSET is available in these language versions: German, English, Chinese, French, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish.

ADVANTAGES OVER CONVENTIONAL SOLUTIONS

MTRAB® 2.5 DEHYDRATING BREATHER CONVENTIONAL DEHYDRATING BREATHERS
+ A significant increase in operational reliability thanks to the maintenance-free system - High risk for transformers if maintenance is not or is improperly carried out
+ The lack of required maintenance means visual inspections can be reduced to a minimum. - Regular visual inspection required throughout the entire service life of the transformer to check the moisture level of the desiccant
+ Cost-intensive, regular replacement of the desiccant is no longer necessary. This significantly reduces costs. - Regular replacement of the desiccant required throughout the entire service life of the transformer
+ Sensor- and status-controlled regeneration of the silica gel - Enormous costs due to frequent refilling of desiccant, in particular in regions with high humidity
+ No environmental or disposal problems arising from consumed desiccant - Environmental impact, disposal problems, and considerable costs due to consumed desiccant
+ Greater efficiency during dehydration thanks to the large contact surface and the technical design - Ineffective dehydration
