FR3® fluid is ideal for transformer fluid applications in renewable solar and wind power generation, retrofilling, and power distribution and transmission.
Power Transmission and Distribution
FR3 fluid is successfully used in power generation and distribution transformers of all voltage classes. When compared to mineral oil, FR3 fluid delivers utilities superior performance and measurable cost efficiencies.
When you choose FR3 fluid for your utility, you empower a flexible and resilient grid to benefit your business, community, and the planet.
FR3 fluid is used in land-based and floating solar plants across the globe.
Solar farm transformers with FR3 fluid enjoy major performance benefits like higher flexible loading capacity and minimal maintenance. The environmental benefits allow for smaller installation footprints and improved fire safety over mineral oil.
Demand for wind power continues to expand and wind turbines for large-scale wind farms have grown more powerful. Now, it is essential to specify high-performing transformers that are compact, lightweight and low maintenance.
Using FR3 fluid in wind turbine transformers— for both onshore and offshore applications—easily meet these criteria with a notable impact on the bottom line.
FR3-fluid-filled transformers can extend the paper insulation life up to 8X longer than mineral-oil-filled equivalents because of its superior moisture handling capabilities. You also get improved fire safety with a fire point more the 2X higher than mineral oil. As a result, when you retrofill any mineral-oil-filled transformer with FR3 fluid, you extend asset life while also lowering the risk of fire.
