Nynas introduces the world’s first bio-based high-performance transformer fluid
With the introduction of NYTRO® BIO 300X, Nynas adds the first product in its new bio-based range, completing its portfolio of high-performance transformer fluids.
A key advantage of this new fluid is that it offers exceptionally good cooling thanks to its ultra-low viscosity. The transformer’s winding hot spot temperature can be significantly reduced. Initial studies show up to 10 degrees improvement compared to average mineral oils and around 20 degrees lower compared to ester liquids. There is huge potential for thermal design optimization as well as improved over-loading capability.
According to Carl Wolmarans, Technical Advisor Electrical Industry at Nynas, NYTRO BIO 300X is the only product in the world that combines ready biodegradability with superior oxidation stability. NYTRO BIO 300X is fully recyclable.
- Requirements on weight and size of transformers will be easier to meet with this new product, says the company in a statement.
Between 21 and 25 October the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) and its network of partners mark a significant milestone in the Healthy Workplaces Campaign.
