LUMINOL TRANSFORMER OIL
LUMINOL™ Outperforms Naphthenic Electrical Insulating Oils. Petro-Canada’s LUMINOL family of electrical insulating fluids represents a breakthrough in electrical insulating fluids technology. Unlike naphthenic mineral oils, LUMINOL uses Petro-Canada’s ultra-pure severely hydrotreated isoparaffin base fluids to help minimize power loss and maximize productivity.
These fluids contain no corrosive sulphur that may lead to transformer breakdown. LUMINOL fluids withstand energy spikes and hot and cold weather extremes, better than naphthenic electrical insulating oils. Thanks to a naturally high oxidation stability, LUMINOL fluids resist breakdown longer and help provide extended service life. So less money is spent on routine transformer maintenance and fluid top-up, and less time worrying about transformer efficiency. LUMINOL delivers worry-free, corrosive sulphur-free performance.
