Cooper Power Systems Peak transformers: Hi.

Plant Services: So what exactly do you do?

C: I am designed to manage increased loads and temporary overload capacity with a four-time greater life expectancy when compared to mineral oil-filled transformer alternatives.

PS: What sets you apart from the competition?

C: I use a high-temperature insulation system — comprised of thermally upgraded kraft paper, an optimized core and coil design, and Envirotemp FR3 dielectric fluid.

PS: Interesting. Tell us more about yourself.

C: I am filled with the biodegradable alternative to transformer oil, Envirotemp FR3 dielectric fluid. My soybean oil-based fluid creates a barrier against water at the surface of the insulation.

PS: Why should someone buy you?

C: I am available in 75 AWR (Average Winding Rise), 55/75 AWR, and 65/75 AWR in both 5-167 kVA single phase pole-mount transformers and 5-167 kVA single phase pad-mount transformers in either ANSI 1 or ANSI 2 configurations.

PS: Tell us more about Cooper Power Systems.

C: Cooper Industries, a leading manufacturer of a variety of electrical products, and hand and power tools, is a proven leader in providing groundbreaking solutions for the global industrial marketplace.

PS: And now it's time for a fun question. What is your favorite phrase?

C: Knowledge is power.
