"NYTRO BIO 300X is the result of years of intensive research. We are now able to offer a 100% renewable product with superior performance. It is a true innovation," says Dr. Gaia Franzolin, Nynas Global Marketing Manager.

Following a long and comprehensive evaluation programme, Elektromotoren und Gerätebau Barleben (EMB), the market-leading German manufacturer of Buchholz relays, has approved the use of Nynas’ new bio-based transformer fluid NYTRO® BIO 300X in the company’s products. This renewable and biodegradable transformer liquid has been shown to work safely and correctly at all temperatures with the full range of designs and sizes of Buchholz relays.

“NYTRO BIO 300X passed stringent testing, including buoyancy tests and flow actuation tests in the applicable temperature range,” explains René Abrahams, Technical Manager Electrical Industry at Nynas.

With a performance equal to that of the reference liquids used in the study, Nynas’ bio-based liquid offers further advantages to the electrical industry. Its ultra-low viscosity provides superior heat transfer, resulting in a more efficient cooling of power transformers.
