Vacuum Pressure Impregnated (VPI) Transformers
VPI transformers, a new construction concept, are suitable for installations that require particular attention to the environment, with minimum flammable material.
The windings up to 1.1kV class are made in foil or strip in a continuous layer; for higher voltages, the winding is made of disks connected in series or parallel according to the voltage or power of the winding.
The insulation can be used in class F or H and the impregnation is made with class H polyester resin
All production with air insulation has a small amount of flammable material, less of the resin solution and without any term of comparison with the oil solutions.
The transformer impregnated in air is not only suitable for distribution, but also for any type of special applications (such as the resin transformer). There are no particular limitations for the insulation levels, although generally it is not used for classes higher than 36 KV.
This type of transformers can be provided with a protective box, according to the desired IP. The boxes are painted with epoxy paint according to the RAL requested (RAL standard 7032) with pickled or galvanised sheet for outdoor installations.
Special applications for the outdoors include the creation of an aluminium box complete with MV ceramic bushing and LV resin insulators.

The range of solutions for low environmental impact has been revamped The growing interest in sustainability is nothing new to GBE, that, for several years, has been offering its own “Environmental Range” dedicated to installations where a limited energy load is required in the event of fire and maximum respect for the environment. This […]
A structure dedicated to the Australian market, including an assembly and maintenance facility GBE has always looked to expand into international markets, not just in Europe, but worldwide. In recent years, bolstered by the positive results achieved in Asia, Africa and Latin America, this commitment has translated into a commercial presence even further afield, […]
