City of Leeds Friday 12th October 2018

The well attended 2018 Social Event was held at the impressive Oulton Hall outside of the City of Leeds.

The evening started with a Gin Tasting hosted by distiller Spirit of Harrogate which was followed by an excellent 3 course meal with wine and other drinks flowing at the free bar until late.


After a hearty breakfast many members and partners visited the Royal Armouries, with access via the free water taxis from the City centre.

New MIDEL eN Natural Ester Product Guide.

MIDEL eN is our natural ester-based dielectric fluid which is suitable for sealed electrical equipment or equipment fitted with a bagged conservator. In particular it is ideal for installations in temperate locations or indoors.

Natural esters or vegetable oils as they can also be known, are a group of materials directly derived from renewable plant sources. In the case of MIDEL eN the source material is rapeseed oil. Since their introduction in the 1990’s natural esters have primarily been used in distribution transformers. Nowadays natural esters are successfully being applied to large power transformers.

MIDEL eN is an excellent dielectric fluid because it has a high fire point making it far more fire safe than mineral oil. It is also one of the most environmentally friendly dielectric fluids available. Not only is MIDEL eN manufactured using renewable vegetable oil, it is also non-toxic and readily biodegradable. In addition, MIDEL eN offers superior moisture tolerance and it has the potential to increase the lifetime of cellulose based solid insulation, which can extend the life of the transformer.
