Transformer oil or dielectric fluid is a highly refined mineral oil which is stable at high temperatures and has excellent dielectric and cooling properties. It is mainly used in oil-filled transformers as an insulating and cooling medium. Apart from this application, transformer oil is also used in few types of high voltage capacitors, high-voltage switches, and circuit breakers. The major functions of transformer oil are to insulate, suppress corona and arcing, and to behave as a coolant. But, the increasing use of dry type transformer oil and corrosive effect of sulfur present in transformer oil has limited the growth of this market.
