Test methods for quantitative determination of corrosive sulfur compounds in unused and used insulating liquids - Part 2: Test method for quantitative determination of total corrosive sulfur (TCS)
The method is applicable with the following matrices:
a) Unused and used insulating liquids, for example mineral insulating oils and natural esters, which allow the determination of corrosive sulfur compounds over concentrations ranging between 2,5 mg kg-1 to 80 mg kg-1 TCS.
b) Solid matrices that come in contact with the insulating liquid, for example insulating papers in electrical equipment. The quantification limits for these matrices depend on the amount of matrix used during the determination. The method can be used for the quantitative or semi-quantitative determination of copper sulfide on paper after the test according to IEC 62535. The method can provide unambiguous quantitative assessment of copper sulfide present on paper rather than qualitative results obtained with the SEM-EDX examination stipulated in case of doubts in the interpretation of results obtained from the inspection of paper according to IEC 62535:2008, 6.3.
c) Paper and other solid insulating material/s obtained from failed transformers, reactors and other electrical equipment to assist in failure diagnostics.
d) Metal deactivator or passivators additives present in insulating liquids (qualitative assessment).
However, the method is not applicable for assessing corrosion phenomena for example the dissolution of copper in insulating liquids and deposition on solid matrices, which do not lead to sulfide formation.
