TRANSFORMER EXPLOSION AND FIRE PREVENTION TECHNOLOGY
Most oil-filled transformers explode and catch fire during short circuit events within the oil. Sentry DS stands guard 24/7 with the power industry’s #1, chosen solution for eliminating transformer explosions and fires. Our fast depressurization systems proactively protect your company’s most valued assets – the lives of your employees and your transformer fleet while simultaneously saving millions of dollars in lost revenue, hefty EPA fines, clean up costs and the negative public image that follows a transformer explosion. Our systems install in half the time, at a lower cost, without the complexity associated with other systems.

THE INEVITABLE THREAT OF AN EXPLOSIVE FIRE
Fast depressurization systems are a recommended practice for Fire Protection for Electrical Generating Plants and High Voltage direct Current Converter Stations, 2015 ED.
Transformers are aging at an alarming rate. According to Department of Commerce data, the electric utility industry reached a peak in new installations in the U.S. around 1973-1974. Today those transformers are over 40 years old. Inevitably these aging transformers will short circuit resulting in explosive fires shutting down entire grids.
Hundreds of these large oil
cooled transformers are lost each year in the United States.
While these are necessary safety devices, they are not fast
enough to prevent explosions and fires during short circuit events.

THE SENTRY DS SUPERIOR SOLUTION
Our fast depressurization technology is the most affordable, smart solution available to the power industry.
When winding insulators decay, internal faults can occur. Let our FDS take away the fear of an explosion. Always on guard, our passive mechanical system responds to these faults in milliseconds, safely and effectively disperse explosive gas that develops too quickly for other safeguards to respond to. We keep your tank intact, allowing oil and vapor passage to safe locations away from your valued assets; and avoiding costly collateral damage.
