Custom Bus Work

When your plant or facility needs to increase energy production or capacity, or you need to replace an existing dry type, you may have to alter infrastructure to meet your goals. Replacing your dry type transformer with a different model can prove costly, especially because it can require you to rework all the connections to and from the transformer.

To save money while upgrading, many facility managers turn to new retrofit transformers. These custom systems can provide greater power capacity while maintaining the connections and dimensions of the original.

At ELSCO Transformers, we can provide custom bus work for retrofit dry type transformers. For a perfect fit, our staff will make sure the new low voltage bus bars line up with your facility’s existing low voltage gear and include any necessary high voltage cabling to the high voltage gear. When you provide specifications, we can equip your medium-voltage dry type transformer with the right bus bar arrangement for your applications.

Benefits of Dry Type Transformer Bus Work

Custom bus work comes with a number of advantages for companies interested in upgrading their dry type transformers. At ELSCO Transformers, we provide custom bus work to:

  • Solve unique challenges: Custom bus work will allow you to equip a retrofit transformer with connections that accommodate your space. You can use our custom bus work services to connect a Motor Control Center (MCC) to the transformer, share regenerative drive energy and more.
  • Simplify the installation process: Retrofit transformers with custom bus work are designed to fit in the space your old transformer occupied. You won’t need to rework any connections or build new enclosures, which means saving time during installation.
  • Reduce the cost of upgrading: Retrofit transformers will reuse some of the hardware you already have, which will lower the cost of upgrading your facility’s infrastructure.
