-- 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, Massachusetts, Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --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 membrane.
