FR3™ – Setting the new standard in solar power
FR3™ fluid – the original and most proven natural ester transformer insulating fluid – was specifically designed and formulated to keep projects running at their full capacity while eliminating the unplanned interventions that come with mineral oil. FR3 fluid allows for up to 20% more loading capacity in the same sized transformer; the ability to lower costs by making transformers smaller, and significantly improved reliability thanks to the robustness of the fluid, all while also being a more sustainable, plant-based solution. FR3 fluid is becoming the new standard in insulating fluid in solar power transformers.
The demanding environments created by solar power farms are quickly exposing mineral oil’s many shortcomings. Mineral oil simply can’t handle the extreme conditions that come with solar power, which leads to high levels of gassing, frequent tripping, and vastly accelerated aging of the insulation system. FR3® fluid is specifically formulated to handle the difficult situations created by solar power, even on the warmest of days. It’s unique formulation easily handles high load fluctuations and high heat, with a top fluid temperature that can safely operate at up to 140˚C,1 which also makes the transformer less prone to a partial discharge. FR3 fluid continuously dries paper insulation without creating any damaging byproducts, helping make it robust enough to manage the difficult harmonics caused by the frequent switching of the invertor.
