Utility Transformer Brokers (UTB) is a supplier of Used, New, Reconditioned, and Rewound oil filled substation and unit substation transformers. UTB keeps a large supply of surplus power transformers in our database that are in stock and ready to ship at a moment’s notice.
Substation Transformers have cover-mounted primary bushings with secondary bushings that can be mounted in the cover, on the side or in front. Substation transformers can also be provided with load tap changers (LTC) that automatically regulate the low side voltage without de-energizing the transformer. They are generally connected directly to overhead utility lines and are used to step-down voltage from high to low.
In small power transformers 5-15 MVA with primary voltages up through 69 kV Class, transformers are typically manufactured with rectangular core & coils and layer windings or circular core & coils with disc and helical windings. Rectangular designs are not typically used in transformer applications over 15 MVA or 69 kV.
Unit Substation Transformers are generally coupled to switchgear or bus duct and are designed for commercial and industrial applications where distribution voltage is stepped down to a usable voltage. Unit subs are typically filled with mineral oil, but can be filled with Envirotemp FR3, Silicone, or Biotemp when used for indoor applications.
