What is the procedure to recondition the mineral oil used in transformer so that it become useable again. Any helpful link or...
I didn't realize how many things needs to be considered when reconditioning transformer oil. And as Carl Pugh mentions,You should see if you can find information from the manufacturer. Depending on application, filtration might be recommended, heating under vacuum, separation in a centrifuge, or perhaps a combination of these.
Here are the services http://www.swelectric.com/onsite_oil.aspx" [Broken] provide:There are companies that specialize in reconditioning transformer oil.
