Based on a renewable natural ester, MIDEL eN’s high fire point makes it ideal for safe use in high risk areas such as underground or indoors. This places it above alternatives such as mineral oil when it comes to fire safety.
MIDEL eN is classified as K-class according to IEC 61039, which places it alongside our synthetic transformer oil MIDEL 7131 in an elite group of fluids that are able to offer impeccable fire safety.
Fire is one of the main hazards associated with mineral oils used in transformers, and it can cause serious damage if preventative measures are not put in place. The risk to your employees and property is substantial, particularly if the fire spreads quickly.
