Default Re: Mineral oil cooling !!!???

The transformers you see on the pole tops that feed the power to your house? Most are cooled using mineral oil.

Even this one has mineral oil inside. There is a blanket of nitrogen at a certain pressure to keep impurities from entering the oil as well.

We get transformers from Poland often. ABB has a factory over there. You should see if they will let you take a tour. It's pretty neat stuff!
