Prolec-GE Multitap transformer suited for onshore artificial lift operations



July 4, 2014 – GE says it is now offering the Prolec-GE Multitap transformer in response to the growing industrial trend to deliver customized power to energy-intensive industries, such as oil and gas, which have specific electricity requisites to maintain their operations.

Designed for onshore artificial lift operations, the step-up transformer boasts a robust core and coil design that supports short-circuit forces and prevents the rectangular coil from distorting under fault conditions. According to GE, it is uniquely designed to operate under a variety of extreme conditions, including high humidity, ultraviolet radiation, chemical pollution and saline fog environments.
