Is anyone interested in buying or selling transformer based mineral oils and on occasion FR3 or Silicone oil.

All oil available for sale is originating in Canada.

Prices depend on shipping volumes and destinations.

Certified Non-PCB at < 2ppm.

Canadian buyers can purchase > 2 < 50 ppm PCB in smaller volumes as this is not exportable oil by Regulations.

The mineral oil runs great mixed with diesel and poured in the tank!

Transformer oils (Heat transfer oils) are simply 99.5% base oil with a common anti-oxidant such as diphenylamine.

The better one is:

Transformer oil is typically quite thin (many transformers use natural circulation, many use forced, so viscosity isn't your friend here), very pure, and we do heaps of tests on them to ascertain how they are faring in their service life

Typical tests below.

https://www.satcs.co.za/Transformer_Oil_Analysis.pdf

Some people dope them up as they get old, they can be put through purification plant (vacuum dehydration and fuller's Earth), some people just replace it (it's more predictable).

Have seen people use it as engine oil (stupidly, it's nothing like engine oil), and some use it instead for diesel fuel (*)...can go straight into the fuel oil storage tanks at the power station, which it can do if the recyclers aren't paying much.

(*) In the early days of dealing with PCBs, mildly contaminated transformer oil was recommended to run it through diesels...before thy worked out that they weren't hot enough.
