What is typical life expectancy of a low voltage dry type Distribution Transformer?

Issue:
Low Voltage Dry Type Distribution Transformers have a finite potential lifetime

Product Line:
Low Voltage Transformers

Environment:
Applies to Low Voltage Dry Type Distribution Transformers by SquareD/Schneider Electric

Cause:
Lifetime estimates can be affected by many factors

Resolution:

The life expectancy under various loading conditions of a low voltage dry type Distribution Transformer can be calculated using ANSI Standard C57.12.96 (SquareD/Schneider Electric cannot supply a copy of this standard as it is copyrighted material.) Industry experience has demonstrated that a low voltage dry type Distribution Transfomer with typical loading as found in the majority of installations will satisfactorily serve it`s load 20 to 30 years, or even longer.
