New Delphi Mini Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) Monitor Helps to Cost-Effectively 
Track Transformer Health By Monitoring Key Risk Factors Associated with 
Dissolved Gas Levels 
WATERTOWN, Mass., Dec. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Rapidly aging transformers and 
deferred capital spending on new equipment continues to put pressure on the 
viability of the U.S. electric power grid. As pressure on the grid rises, 
electric power professionals' ability to accurately test and track performance 
through state-of-the-art tools becomes increasingly critical.

To meet the needs of professional engineers in the field, and in response to 
customer feedback, Doble Engineering Company has developed the Delphi Mini – 
a cost-effective dissolved gas analysis (DGA) monitor, and the newest member 
of the Doble Delphi product line. Designed as a "check engine light" for 
transformers, it continuously provides single value readings – of either 
hydrogen or composite gas – that indicate when intervention is necessary in 
real time, indicating the need for further testing or more costly monitoring 
The Delphi Mini helps in maintaining the reliability and life of transformers 
by giving professionals the ability to detect sudden changes in dissolved gas 
levels as they become evident – all preventing possible, long-term, or 
catastrophic damages,  that could cost up to several million dollars. 
"The Delphi Mini puts us one step closer toward helping electric power 
professionals at every stage while they service and maintain power 
transformers," said Dr. Tony McGrail, Solutions Director, asset management and 
monitoring technology at Doble Engineering Company. "At Doble, we are 
committed to providing the best resources on the market, supported by the most 
advanced consulting professionals and testing services in the industry, to 
prevent failures where possible and give adequate warning of system 
Important product features of the Delphi Mini include: 

    --  Continuous, on-line dissolved gas measurement – a key
        indicator of transformer health
    --  Self-monitoring technology that ensures the data provided is
        valuable and actionable intelligence
    --  Immunity to failure during oil surges, maintenance, and other
        activities as a result of its patented vacuum resistant
