L2000® Transformer Oil Reagents

L2000® Transformer Oil Reagents

L2000 Reagents for On-Site PCB Testing of Transformer Oil

The Oil Reagent packs for use with the L2000DX or DXT analyzer include everything needed for PCB screening of transformer oil and are available by packs of 40 and bulk packs of 200.  

Preparing an oil sample for analysis is simple and takes less than 5 minutes.  The L2000 test method involves reacting an oil sample with a sodium reagent to strip the covalently bonded chlorine from the PCB molecule converting it to inorganic chloride.  The resulting chloride is then detected and quantified using a chloride ion specific electrode.   The L2000DX or DXT analyzer then mathematically converts the chloride reading to the equivalent concentration of the target analyte based on the percent chlorine associated with the analyte.  Conversion programs are available for the most common Aroclors and Askarel A.  Custom conversion programs can be built for less common analyte(s) not included on the L2000DX or DXT menu, instructions are included in the user's manual.

The usable result range is (MDL) 3 ppm - 2000 ppm.  Results for the L2000DXT are displayed on the 7" LCD touch screen and are stored in the internal memory.  Results may also be saved to an external flash drive for easy uploading to an Excel program to make later recall and reporting quick and easy.  

NOTE:  This screening method is for DIELECTRIC FLUID (transformer oil) ONLY.  It cannot be used to determine PCB contamination of any other type of oil (i.e. used motor oil or other lubricants/industrial oils).  Laboratory analysis is the only option for PCB testing of lubricating/industrial oils.
