MTE HYDROCAL 1008 Online Individual Dissolved Gas Analysis – 7 Gases & Moisture

The HYDROCAL 1008 is a permanently installed multi-gas-in-oil analysis system with transformer monitoring functions. It individually measures, Moisture in Oil (H2O) and the key gases Hydrogen (H2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH4), Acetylene (C2H2), Ethylene (C2H4) and Ethane (C2H6) dissolved in transformer oil.


MTE HYDROCAL 1008 Online Individual Dissolved Gas Analysis – 7 Gases & Moisture


As Hydrogen (H2) is involved in nearly every fault of the isolation system of power transformers and Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a sign of an involvement of the cellulosic / paper isolation the presence and increase of Acetylene (C2H2) and Ethylene (C2H4) further classifies the nature of a fault as overheating, partial discharge or high energy arcing.
The device can serve as a compact transformer monitoring system by the integration / connection of other sensors present on a transformer via its optional analogue inputs:

  • 4 Analogue inputs 0/4 … 20mADC/6 Analogue inputs 0/4 … 20mAAC +20% or 0 … 80 VAC +20% (configurable by jumpers)

It is further equipped with digital outputs for the transmission of alarms or the execution of control functions (e.g. control of a cooling system of a transformer):

  • 8 digital relay outputs /5 digital optocoupler outputs (Option)
