Transformer oil drip pans are always used when transformers are worked with operationally. If insulation or lubrication is required, sparks are extinguished or the oil is used for cooling, it is always necessary to handle this refined mineral oil with particular care. A specially designed collecting tray should not be dispensed with under any circumstances.
Operational environmental protection with transformer oil drip pans
Transformer oil, also known as insulating oil, is a low-viscosity silicone or highly refined mineral oil which is always used when working with transformers, switches or capacitors. It is used for spark quenching, insulation, lubrication and cooling. Due to its typical properties, it is considered to be particularly heat-resistant and thus proves to be extremely stable even at high temperatures. Despite this, it is considered to be a hazardous substance and must be stored and filled or decanted properly in order to exclude any risk to people and the environment.
The perfect transformer oil collecting tray
A transformer oil collection tray is primarily used to prevent the unhindered escape of transformer oil. Depending on the model, you can choose between collecting trays with removable or fixed sides. The only important thing is to use a suitable, leak-proof material and to have a special tray test certificate, which guarantees absolute safety. Hot-dip galvanised steel drip pans with high-quality, stable screw connections and seals are ideal for this purpose.
