Transformer Oil

Inhibited Type II
Oil For
Description Transformers
Phillips 66 Transformer Oil is a high-quality insulating oil developed And Switchgear
for use in oil-filled transformers, capacitors, tap changers and circuit
breakers where the manufacturer calls for a Type II inhibited oil with
high dielectric strength. It is available in one viscosity grade: ISO 10.
It is manufactured with hydrotreated naphthenic base oils fortified
with special inhibitors for long service life. It does not contain PCBs.

Note: The high dielectric strength of Transformer Oil helps ensure safety around high voltage
equipment. This property is essential wherever the oil is used as an electrical insulator. In order
to maintain a high dielectric strength, the oil must be kept clean and dry. The drums are sealed
with a dry air blanket to keep moisture out. The drums should be stored indoors and covered
to protect them from dust and debris. If stored outdoors, they should be positioned on their
sides or upside down and covered to protect them from moisture and the elements. Every ef-
fort should be made to use the entire drum once the seal is broken to help prevent water con-
tamination, which quickly degrades the dielectric strength of the oil. If contamination is
suspected, always inspect the drum and test the oil for dielectric strength before use.
