How do acids influence kraft paper aging

Hydrolysis of Kraft paper is indicative of the breakdown of the kraft paper system. It was found that five different acids may be present in aging transformers. These include Formic acid, Acetic Acid, Levulinic Acid, Stearic Acid, and Naphthenic acid. Low molecular weight acids are absorbed by the kraft paper, the high molecular acids remain…

A bit of an intro

I am very excited to start this project as it has been a dream for a long time… The compiling of various topics in a central location, hopefully, to serve as a reference source to many maintenance and technical personnel in the distribution and power transformer industry. Various articles would be incorporated over time that…
