GBE also produces special transformers and reactors for measurement and testing laboratories. These products are executed according to customer specifications, guaranteeing a constantly high-performance product with a design geared towards specific operating conditions.
There are numerous references of supply to testing rooms (ABB, Marelli, General Electric) and the experience we have acquired has allowed us to guarantee significant power. For example, in 2017, we produced a 4000kVA cast resin transformer according to the Eco Design Tier 2 table with an inrush current of less than 4 In, free from partial discharges, with the possibility of overcharges when carrying out electrical tests on machinery which must be subjected to abrupt operating cycles.
The three cast-resin transformers are also significant with a total equivalent power of 7500kVA produced for the test rooms of a leading manufacturer of air conditioners located in the north of Italy. The transformers have oversized connections, both on the medium-voltage and low-voltage side, to withstand high currents and continuous inrush due to intermittent operation.
And furthermore, we recently acquired an order for a 25MVA transformer for a test room of a Trieste-based company. This oil-filled transformer is decidedly unique in that it allows tests to be carried out at a variable frequency to test high-powered engines. Further details will be provided in the next issue of the GBE newsletter.
Installation in hazardous areas with combustible gases and dusts: reference standard IEC 60079 ATEX is the conventional name used to group two European Union directives, which regulate the equipment used in areas at risk of explosion and the health and safety of workers in such areas. The standard is in fact derived from the words […]
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, […]
