Guideline for storage of Lubrita transformer oil

Electricity Transformer oil_Lubrita category.jpg

Lubrita transformer oils are produced, stored and handled with the aim to achieve the best possible performance in transformers. It is of great importance to avoid contamination of polar compounds, water, mechanical impurities etc, to maintain the properties of the oil. Lubrita drums (empty or filled) are handled with care by Lubrita in order to avoid damage, and contamination during transport, storage, drum filling, etc. All drums are stored indoors or under a roof on a flat, clean ground, protected from rain, snow, dirt and direct sunlight. If storage under a roof is not possible, drums are always stored upside down or in a horizontal position. Only new drums with design and structure previously approved by Lubrita are used for transformer oils.The oil passes through a special filter when filled into drums. Shrink wrapping may also be available upon request (increased cost). At the customer site the drums should be stored inside or under a roof on a flat, clean ground, protected from dirt, rain, snow and direct sunlight. If storage under a roof is not possible, they shall be stored upside down or in a horizontal position. The shelf life will be affected by temperature changes so the drums must be kept as cool as possible during storage. If there is some oil remaining in a partly used drum it should be stored on its side, protected as above, with the oil level above the bund. Special attention should be given to the rubber gasket around the bung when closing it as tightening it too hard will cause damage. It is not advisable to store half-emptied drums for long periods due to the risk of contamination. Unopened transformer oil drums, stored under above stated conditions and not damaged, are
expected to be within specification for at least one year.
