The use of Nomex® paper and pressboard helps enable a lighter weight traction transformer design for Amtrak’s Acela Express, reducing the weight of the equipment transformer by between 15% and 25%.
Yunnan Transformer Co. met reliability needs under extreme overload using Nomex® paper in liquid-immersed transformers with hybrid insulation systems.
Transformer retrofit with Nomex® insulation boosts operational flexibility, enhances reliability under demanding operating conditions and reduces maintenance costs for hydroelectric power plant.
Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation turned a mobile transformer failure into success by opting for a transformer uprating with Nomex® paper and pressboard, increasing capacity and versatility for less than half the cost of a new unit.
In 2000, CG Power Systems teamed up with DuPont to develop high-temperature, liquid-immersed transformers targeted at the wind segment. Today, thousands of wind turbine transformers with Nomex® insulation have been installed globally.
