Transformer Oil Recycling

Conserving a non-renewable resource.


Transformer oil (also known as insulating oil) is a durable oil used for high temperatures and the conduction of electricity. It is also a non-renewable resource that can be recycled for reuse. When not handled properly, transformer oil can be harmful to the environment as well as humans. At Aevitas, we are a leading hazardous waste management industry specialist in providing industrial manufacturers and electrical utility companies across Canada with transformer oil recycling services. Our transformer oil recycling facility receives, treats, and refines used transformer oil, removing virtually all PCB content within it, and producing new, high quality transformer oil for re-sale in the transformer market.

The transformer oil recycling process we use at Aevitas is just one of the recycling services we offer that allows for the continued use of a non-renewable resource. Our fleet of trucks and oil tankers allow us to drain and transport large or small volumes from coast to coast. Our highly trained and experienced on-site transformer oil recycling personnel know exactly what to do when called upon to drain transformers and various other electrical equipment safely and effectively. For environmentally sensitive locations, our company's personnel will deploy our portable "spill containment berm", allowing the full truck or tanker volume to be contained in an emergency rupture or spill situation.

Our transformer oil recycling facility is a registered waste receiver with the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE). Our transformer oil recycling service produces high caliber transformer oil that is well-suited for transformer applications:

MODEF60 Mineral Insulating Oil

Our organization's MODEF60 mineral insulating oil is a recycled transformer oil that is napthenic based. MODEF60 meets existing ASTM quality standards and is shipped throughout Canada. Our ability to supply and deliver by tanker, tote, drum, or pail meets virtually every customer requirement. MODEF60 can be supplied in either Type I or Type II ("supercharged" inhibited) formulations. Our type II "supercharged" transformer oil (available in totes, drums or pails) can be added to existing transformer oil so as to halt the oxidation process that naturally occurs within transformers over time. Once a client provides us with their particular requirements and transformer volumes, we can formulate and supply them with the necessary amount of "supercharged" transformer oil. Please view technical information for our type I and type II transformer oils by visiting:

Additional transformer oil services

For customers with long term transformer oil storage issues, our company's 700,000 litre capacity transformer oil tank farm can help. Our transformer oil tank farm is concrete contained and was built on a geosynthetic membrane to eliminate any potential environmental risk. All pumping to and from our transformer oil tank farm is conducted within our self-contained Quonset hut. We also maintain a supply of silicone transformer fluid which is recycled and reprocessed for use in either retrofilling or silicone fluid level top ups on existing silicone filled transformers. We can supply in either tote, drum, or pail depending on particular customer needs. For more information on our silicone transformer fluid, please visit MSDS silicone fluid.
