We generally take an uninterrupted power supply for granted. Very few of us are aware of the technology behind it, technology such as that offered by Krempel – insulation systems for liquid-filled power and distribution transformers.
The unrestricted function of liquid-filled transformers over many years is largely determined by the quality of the insulation materials used. They influence the optimum distribution of liquids such as oil and ester in the transformer. During the production of transformers, but in particular during subsequent operations, insulation materials must withstand many different mechanical, thermal, electrical, chemical and climatic strains – with Krempel insulation materials, this comes with a lasting guarantee.
Our solutions for liquid-filled transformers
- Roller pressboards for layer insulation
- Sheet pressboards, corrugated chipboard, partial and full-surface pressboard mouldings for insulating cylinders and cooling channels
- PREPREGS for external bandings
- Crepe tubes for insulating switch connections
- Machined components, moulded parts and construction sets
The most important insulation materials when manufacturing liquid-filled transformers are pressboards and machined parts made from pressboard. We are one of the world’s leading manufacturers in this field, with a history spanning more than 100 years.
Our pressboards have very special qualities, depending on the cellulose type, fibre structure and production process.
From standard to innovation
In addition to standardised electrical insulation materials of proven premium quality, our innovative and individual solutions allow us to stand out. These are the result of close interaction with our customers. Not only do we make improvements to established insulation materials, we also have the tools and expertise gleaned from countless projects to bring genuine, radical innovations to the market. Our thermally refined pressboard for high-temperature applications up to 140°C is a recent testament to our innovative power. It is one of a kind on the global market. It opens up completely new possibilities for transformer construction.
Innovative insulation materials for renewable, environmentally friendly energy solutions
Krempel offers innovative insulation materials which meet the requirements of green energy solutions:
- Increased overload capacity
- Designs with peak loads
- High temperature resistance
- Extended service life
- Environmental sustainability
- Compact and light design
Power transformers are of key importance in our electricity networks. Reliable, durable insulation in the transformer is essential for power networks to function smoothly. Our core bandings for power transformers are ideal for this. Our electrical insulation materials, especially pressboard, are also particularly suitable for insulating cylinders, mouldings, spacers, spacer washers, pressure rings and conductor supports. We offer both individual parts and complete systems in cooperation with long-standing partners.
Distribution transformers are key to transporting electricity to consumers. Krempel’s insulation materials fulfil an important role in ensuring that the power supply to consumers is secured every day. Krempel offers perfectly coordinated materials for all thermal classes: 105°C - 120°C - 130/140°C - 180°C.
Depending on the desired thermal class, the following base materials can be used:
- Pure cellulose papers (105°C)
- Thermally refined cellulose papers (120°C)
- Cellulose papers reinforced with aramid (130/140°C)
- Pure aramid papers (180°C)
Our portfolio of distribution transformers:
- Roller pressboard and pressboard with epoxy resin coating for layer insulation
- Sheet pressboards, corrugated chipboard, ladder grids and ladder ducts for insulating cylinders and cooling channels
