Cargill Envirotemp FR3 dielectric fluid identified as technology enabler in new IEEE high temperature insulation standard
In Minnesota, Cargill reports that demonstrated enhanced thermal capabilities of its Envirotemp FR3 renewable dielectric fluid, which is made from vegetable oil, have been published within a new design standard by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
Industry-standard temperature limits for electrical transformers are traditionally capped at 110-degrees Celsius. IEEE’s new standard (C57.154) sets the upper operating temperature limit of transformers designed with natural esters (FR3 fluid) at 130-degrees Celsius without adversely impacting transformer life.
