Critical laboratory services for transformer oil testing

We provide laboratory services for transformer oil testing and insulation paper testing at our NATA certified QLD laboratory

About Us

Why Our Lab

We would like to inform you of our transformer oil testing service based at Acacia Ridge in the south side of Brisbane. This facility is supported by the Engineering Department of the GE Worldwide Transformer factories and services client’s needs for testing oil, paper insulation from all types of transformers filled with all types of insulating fluids. The laboratories services are NATA accredited and services and documentation are covered by our Quality Management System certification to ISO 9001. 

How We Help


 Our expert analysis of oil test results is undertaken in a 3-stage process:

  • Instrument outputs are first reviewed by our experienced lab technicians in accordance with GE guidelines, Australian Standards and International Standards.
  • Results are collated into a report for review by the Laboratory Manager, a GE Technical Expert, prior to submission to the customer.
  • Further examination of results can be carried out by a transformer design engineer should there be any abnormalities identified outside set limits.

The service offered also includes comprehensive trending of results with reports. Our reports go beyond the provision of raw data and and results can also be accessed online through our web portal. The report format includes the following.  

  • Graphical representation of historical data.
  • Interpretation of raw results and trends by a GE Technical Expert. 
  • Summary interpretation of transformers requiring attention and further resampling.
