Transformer oil, which is also referred to as insulating oil, is a non-renewable resource that can be re-refined into new product for reuse. As leaders in the hazardous waste management industry, Aevitas specializes in providing industrial manufacturers and electrical utility companies across Canada with transformer oil processing services. Our transformer oil recycling process re-refines used transformer oil at our treatment facility, removing virtually all PCB content within it, and producing new, high quality transformer oil to supply the transformer market. This innovative process is just one of the recycling services Aevitas provides that allows for the continued use of a non-renewable resource.
Our fleet of trucks and dedicated oil tankers allow our experienced personnel to safely and effectively drain transformers and electrical equipment and transport large or small volumes from coast to coast. In locations which are environmentally sensitive, our portable "spill containment berm" will be deployed, which can effectively contain the full truck or tanker volume in the event of an emergency rupture or spill situation. Aevitas' 700,000 litre capacity, concrete contained, geosynthetic membrane transformer oil tank farm receives (using our self-contained Quonset hut) and stores transformer oil short or long term.
Our transformer oil facility is a registered waste receiver with Climate Change (MOECC) and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. The transformer oil recycling process produces a high quality end product that is well-suited for transformer applications.
Our company's MODEF60 mineral insulating oil is a recycled transformer oil that is napthenic based and meets existing ASTM quality standards. MODEF60 mineral insulating oil can be supplied in either type I or type II formulations. Our type II "supercharged" inhibited transformer oil (available in totes, drums or pails) can be added to existing transformer oil to halt the oxidation process that naturally occurs within transformers over time. Please view technical information for our type I and type II transformer oils by visiting:
At Aevitas, our company also supplies silicone transformer fluid (available in tote, drum, or pail form) which is recycled and reprocessed for use in either retro-filling or silicone fluid level top ups on existing silicone filled transformers.
