This guide is to assist users of the equipment in evaluating the serviceability of new, unused oil being received in equipment; oil as received for filling new equipment at the installation site; and oil as processed into equipment. It also assists the operator in maintaining the oil in serviceable condition.This guide applies to mineral oil used in transformers, load tap changers, voltage regulators, reactors, and circuit breakers. The guide discusses the following: a) Analytical tests and their significance for the evaluation of mineral insulating oil. b) The evaluation of new, unused mineral insulating oil before and after filling into equipment. c) Methods of handling and storage of mineral insulating oil. d) The evaluation of service-aged mineral insulating oil. e) Health and environmental care procedures for mineral insulating oil. The characteristics of the oils discussed in this guide do not include oil that is in factory fill lines, nor does this guide cover reclaimed oil installed in new equipment. The qualities of such oil, if used, should be agreed upon by the manufacturer and the user of the equipment.
