Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company
On August 22nd DILO Direct was contacted by Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company in Lawton Oklahoma to support them with an on-site emergency dry-out of over 700 lb of SF6 gas. ��For this application, SF6 is used as a dielectric medium to insulate their 500kV Gas Insulated Equipment (GIE). �
Over the years, Goodyear has been using an SF6 gas scrubbing process designed to dry their SF6 gas through an on-board heating system. This type of technology has proved to be inefficient and very time-consuming. �For example, through this process, a regular dry-out of moisture content > 500 PPMv could take over 7 days to complete.
DILO Direct provided on-site field services with DILO manufactured equipment (proven technology) to efficiently dry out 700 lb of SF6 with a measured moisture content of 2,300 PPMv.�� The equipment utilized for this process was our Z288 Mega Recovery system, Z104R01 pre-filter system, and dry storage cylinders. �With the right equipment and technical know-how, DILO Direct services reduced the moisture content from 2,300 PPMv to an acceptable level of 150 PPMv in 12 hours. �The following day, even lower moisture values were achieved.
DILO Direct is proud to offer on-site gas handling solutions that exceed our customer expectations.
