Covered in this guide are: mineral insulating oil commonly defined as transformer oil; definitions and descriptions of reclaiming procedures; the test methods used to evaluate the progress and end point of the reclamation process; and recommended criteria for the suitable use of reclaimed oils. The use of oil in new apparatus under warranty is not covered in this guide.

Other Activities From This Working Group
Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.
Guide for Reclamation and Reconditioning of Insulating Liquids
This guide applies to mineral oil, natural esters, synthetic esters, silicone and less flammable hydrocarbon (LFH) insulating liquids used in electrical equipment. The guide covers definition and description of reclaiming and reconditioning procedures; the test methods used to evaluate the progress and end point of the process. This guide does not cover the use of insulating liquids in new apparatus under warranty and re-refining of insulating liquids.
Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.
No Active Standards
These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.
IEEE Guide for the Reclamation of Insulating Oil and Criteria for Its Use
Detailed procedures are provided for reclaiming used mineral insulating oils (transformer oils) by chemical and mechanical means to make them suitable for reuse as insulating fluids. Reclamation procedures are described, as are the test methods used to evaluate the progress and end point of the reclamation process and the essential properties required for reuse in each class of equipment. Suitable criteria for the use of reclaimed oils are identified. The use of oil in new apparatus under warranty is not covered.
These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.
No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards
These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
No Inactive-Reserved Standards
