Swedish oil specialists Nynas AB have introduced the world’s first bio-based transformer fluid.

With the introduction of NYTRO® BIO 300X, Nynas adds the first product in its new bio-based range, completing its portfolio of high-performance transformer fluids.

“NYTRO BIO 300X is the result of years of intensive research. We are now able to offer a 100% renewable product with superior performance. No other product in the market has this today. It is a true innovation,” says Koen Kempeneer, Global Market Manager Electrical Industry at Nynas.

The firm claims that a key advantage of this new fluid is that it offers exceptionally good cooling thanks to its ultra-low viscosity.

The reduction of a transformers winding hot spot temperature is also touted as one of the products advantages. Initial studies show up to 10 degrees improvement compared to average mineral oils and around 20 degrees lower compared to ester liquids.

According to Carl Wolmarans, Technical Advisor Electrical Industry at Nynas, NYTRO BIO 300X  is also the only product in the world that combines ready biodegradability with superior oxidation stability.

Just like all the other Nynas products for the electrical industry, NYTRO BIO 300X  is fully recyclable.

NYTRO BIO 300X  meets and exceeds the IEC 60296 specifications.
