Pacific Crest Transformers says its station and substation transformers are ideal for mining applications, constructed to withstand rough ground and corrosive environments and featuring greater overload capability and high thermal resistivity. Designed to withstand the harsh conditions found at mines, PCT transformers can be used in applications that range from auxiliary lighting loads to power for cranes, drag lines, conveyor belts and other miscellaneous dedicated variable speed drive applications.
PCT’s liquidfilled station type transformers are available in ratings from 75 to 15,000 kVA. Compact in size, station transformers are skid mounted and can operate while tilted. Customized designs are available for both new applications and replacement of existing transformers. PCT’s secondary unit substation transformers also are designed for reliability and heavy industrial use, offering a wide range of core steels and winding conductors to meet total-ownership cost and material requirements.
