Transformers breathe during the thermal contraction of the oil inside the transformer. Control that no humidity enters inside the transformer during this operation because moisture causes aging and outages. Choose our dehydrating breathers and assure moisture absorption through colored silica gel, which indicates the silica gel saturation. The operator identifies on-site when to replace the silica gel with new salt.

** The oil quantities assigned to size classes are oriented on normal European ambient conditions as given in EN50216-1, Table 1.
The values are intended to give guidance to the user: The proposed choice must take into consideration the real environmental conditions,
the thermal cycles due to the service conditions of the transformer and the maintenance cycle.
