Transformers Magazine profiles MIDEL transformer fluids

Transformers Magazine profiles MIDEL transformer fluids


M&I Materials is profiled in the July 2015 edition of Transformers Magazine, examining the MIDEL brand of ester-based transformer fluids and how these fluids are beginning to shape the future of transformer design.

Barry Menzies, head of MIDEL fluids, comments "MIDEL was initially recognised as a viable alternative to mineral oil in niche applications where fire safety or environmental impact presented substantial risks. Over time, we’ve built on this success to respond to end users’ changing needs and we’re seeing more widespread use in standard specifications.

The journey has taken us from small distribution units, indoor and underground sites, through wind, traction and transmission applications to the latest 400 kV-range transformers. The locations vary from high altitude to deep sea and extremes of both cold and heat. MIDEL enables transformer OEMs and service companies across the globe to increase their value proposition and competitive advantage."
