MIDEL natural ester transformer fluid offers fire and environmental advantages

ATLANTA, GA, March 30th, 2016 – MIDEL natural ester-based transformer fluid (MIDEL eN) is now manufactured, sold and distributed in the United States. Alonso Castillo, MIDEL’s President for North America, commented “We are delighted to bring MIDEL eN to the United States. From today, transformer manufacturers and utilities have more choice when it comes to natural ester transformer fluids. MIDEL is entering the US market with thirty-five plus years of proven success across the globe, and we look forward to delivering transformer fluids that will make a real difference to the US market.” MIDEL eN and synthetic ester MIDEL 7131 are products of M&I Materials Ltd, a UK-based manufacturer. The company’s US operations are based in Atlanta, Georgia.

In the US, MIDEL eN is made in a partnering arrangement with Valtris Specialty Chemicals in its Walton Hills facility in Ohio.  “Valtris is a perfect partner for us,” said Barry Menzies, MIDEL Product Director, “They are experts in processing vegetable oils and proven high performers in logistics and distribution. For our part, M&I Materials brings a deep understanding of ester based transformer fluid technology, manufacturing and use. MIDEL fluids are the ester transformer fluids of choice in the rest of the world, so introducing MIDEL eN to the United States is a natural evolution for the business.”

MIDEL will be exhibiting at the IEEE Transmission & Distribution conference in Dallas, Texas, 2-5 May 2016, at Stand 651.
