||Oct. 1988, Vol.41, No.10, p.51-54. Illus.
||Exposure of transformers to a simulated fire in its environment revealed that fire resistance lasts only as long as no insulating fluid leaks out. This usually takes only a few minutes. The insulating fluids used such as mineral oil, silicon or ester, ignited on the hot surface of the transformer and escalated the fire.
