Our high quality products are delivering top notch performance. This has been confirmed both by extensive field experience as well as type tests and special tests carried out by international laboratories that have concluded that our products have delivered the best recorded performances in their categories.
Equally as important, those performances are sustained throughout the life of the product. Our designs have minimized the root causes for aging so we expect you to still be operating our products 40 years from now.
From a genuine dry, paperless and reliable technology comes genuine maintenance-free operation. Real Peace of Mind for maintenance crews.
As part of our “belt and suspender” approach we also offer a built-in, self-powered insulation condition monitoring option for our products.
HV DryShield® and RIF® products are explosion-free by design for their lifetime, providing a totally safe environment for personnel and residential neighborhoods.
In addition, none of the materials used would sustain fire, hence further limiting risks.
Our dry, paperless core insulation systems are impervious to water. Storage does not require any particular condition if products are kept in their crates..
Environmental issues are getting more demanding as power grids continue to grow. This translates into new regulations making recycling or elimination of equipment using toxic insulating media more and more complex and expensive. Sustainability must come from other approaches. Our true dry technologies do not use any toxic material, does not leak any liquid and can be recycled at end of life.
As many utilities understand, there is much more to the actual cost of equipment than just the purchase price. The notion of “ownership cost” comes closer to reality; when one sums up the cost of acquisition, cost of maintenance, actual life duration, the cost of lost revenues resulting from an incident or worse, the compromised safety of personnel after an explosion or environmental impact of toxic releases, comparisons are striking. Furthermore, the increasing cost of recycling of toxic media at end of life is often overlooked.
We are confident in delivering the best cost of ownership along with a trouble-free operation, so that our customers benefit from our technology tomorrow as well as 40 years from now.
RHM International’s products are uniquely positioned for the future providing a high-quality choice that addresses the industry’s environmental concerns today and in the future.
We are continuously tracking the performance of our products through time. This includes full analysis studies of operational equipment after up to 18 years of operations. Partial Discharge as well as the dielectric dissipation factor (tanδ) have consistently been identical or even lower than values recorded when new.
At the root of this performance is a uniform and linear electrical field profile insured by a finely graded condenser insulation without any gap in the overall configuration. This guarantees stress-free operation of the materials used. Those materials are themselves high performance grades with slow aging characteristics.
Consequently, sustained performance and durability are combined for a long operational life.
Our products have been used for the past 20 years in all kinds of climatic and industrial environments: from tropical and humid to sub-arctic and icy, from dry and hot to polluted seacoast industrial clusters, from sea-level to 3000m (9000ft) altitudes. They have withstood the harshest conditions. They have never let our customers down.
