The lifeblood of a transformer

Benzoil is among Australia’s few specialised transformer oil suppliers, and we consider ourselves well placed in the oil market to offer helpful advice.  Dielectric fluid is used in oil-filled electrical assets including:

  • Transformers
  • High voltage capacitors
  • Circuit breakers

The function of transformer oil is to insulate and cool, and serves to:

  • Prevent electrical discharges between the coils
  • Remove heat generated by the operation of a transformer

Transformer oil can be considered a technically complex product, and we can explain the meaning and significance of the various physical, chemical and electrical properties including:

  • Moisture Content
  • Interfacial Tension
  • Flash Point
  • Viscosity
  • Pour Point
  • Neutralization value
  • Oxidation Stability
  • Corrosive Sulphur
  • Dielectric Strength
  • Specific Resistance
  • Dielectric Dissipation Factor

Although vegetable and synthetic variants are available, Benzoil chiefly offers mineral based transformer oil for sale.  Benzoil can supply electrical insulating oil for all applications and meeting any international or Australian specification.  Depending on the purpose, transformer oil may be required to meet not just technical requirements, but also environmental and price points.

We offer 3 tiers of transformer oil comprising:

  • Virgin (i.e. refined from crude)
  • Re-refined (i.e. refined from previously refined (virgin) oil)
  • Regenerated (i.e. physio-processed from previously refined (virgin) oil)

We welcome one-off sales enquiries as well as ongoing supply requirements.  Typical users include power utilities, OEMs, and service and maintenance companies.  Transformer oil is usually ordered in bulk and delivered by specialised road tankers or ISO containers.  We can also supply in sizes including:

  • 1,000L (IBC or pallecon)
  • 205L (drum)
  • 20L (small drum)

We provide a NATA accredited laboratory certificate of analysis with all orders.
