Prevent or react?
Which would you rather be in a position to do when it comes to catastrophic (sustained) fires that develop as a result of transformer failures?
If you’re like most people, prevention is the preferable choice. Today’s substation designers and asset managers are proactively using field proven technology to prevent catastrophic incidents. In particular, they are specifying and substituting less-flammable fluids (Envirotemp FR3 fluid) in lieu of traditional mineral oil dielectric coolant.
