What is the need for use of INSULATING VARNISH?

As you know, all electrical machines run when electric current pass through its coil or winding. The electric current has two components; one component gives active power, which is being use for generating useful energy and other component gives reactive power, which generate heat in electric machines. The other component also called loss current. The electric machines run in very adverse environment of humidity, chemical vapor, temperature and vibration. As result of this adverse environment, three different kind of stress (Thermal, mechanical and chemical) work at a time on machine, which cause failure of machines. Insulating varnishes is specially formulated to protect the electrical machine from these stresses, so that life and safety of electrical machine is enhanced.

What is the Definition of Varnish?

The solution of resin and solvent without pigment are called varnish.

How are Insulating varnish Classified

Insulating varnishes are classified on the basis of drying nature and their thermal class. According to drying nature varnish is classified as air drying and baking type. According to thermal classes the varnishes are classified as A, B, C, E, F and H.

What are common Application areas of NEOVAR

NEOVAR is used for applications in transformer, chokes, coils, all kinds of motor, fans, circuit board, insulation tapes, glass laminates, AC/ DC motor, generator, alternator, armature etc.

How is NEOVAR applied on electrical machines?

It is applied by dipping, pouring, brushing and vacuum impregnation.

The small component like small transformer, chokes etc can be applied by dipping the component in varnish tank and hang for drying. The bigger component like motor, rotor, alternator etc can be applied by brushing/pouring. Some precision electrical machine or coils, which runs on very high voltage like ignition coil, fly back transformer, are applied by vacuum impregnation.

What is vacuum impregnation method of applying varnish?

In vacuum impregnation method, varnish is poured in One tank ( 1st tank). 1st tank is connected to 2nd tank. In second tank, electrical components are placed in tray. Vacuum is applied from 2nd tank. Due to applying of vacuum, varnish come to 2nd tank and impregnate the component kept in the tray. This is most precision method of impregnation. In this method varnish reach to every turns of coil and ensure component winding 100% free from air entrapment in coil. Air entrapment may be a cause for failure of components sometime.
