Transformer Retrofits

The team at ELSCO Transformers has more than a century of experience in retrofitting. Through the replacement process, you can meet your facility’s demands at a more affordable capital cost. Our plug-and-play retrofits streamline your installation so you can get faster results.

What Is Transformer Retrofitting?

 Retrofitting involves replacing an old transformer with a new transformer customized to your specific dimensions. A retrofit from ELSCO Transformers goes beyond a standard replacement. When you order a retrofit transformer, you get a replacement that helps you meet your company’s evolving electricity needs. Your retrofit will also have a design meant to fit into your existing power system.

Do You Need Your Transformer Retrofit?

Our clients have numerous reasons for replacing their transformers, including:

  • End of lifespan: If you have an older transformer, you may need to replace it to keep your facility up and running.
  • Increased capacity needs: As your business grows, so should your transformer. We can retrofit your old model with a higher-capacity transformer.
  • Natural disaster: Lightning, flooding and other weather events can cause premature transformer failure, requiring a prompt replacement.
  • Overloading: Harmonics and increased electrical loads can break down and weaken a transformer, requiring an updated design or a retrofit.
  • Maintenance issues: When you experience frequent maintenance issues, you likely will need to update your transformer.

Emergency Replacement Services Available

At ELSCO Transformers, we also offer emergency replacements when you have an urgent need for a transformer. When you have a sudden outage that halts your operations, we can get a retrofit unit on the road within 24 hours. For emergency service, call us at 800-232-9002.
