Does SquareD/Schneider Electric offer fungus proofing of Low Voltage Dry-type Distribution Transformers?

Issue:
Fungus Proofing of Transformers

Product Line:
LV Transformers

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

Cause:
Transformers are sometimes used in high humidity environments


Resolution:

SquareD/Schneider Electric`s does not offer fungus proofing for two reasons:
1) the varnish in SquareD/Schneider Electric's Low Voltage Transformers doesn`t promote formation of fungus, and
2) there is no fungus proofing varnish available that can withstand the standard operating temperature of a Low Voltage Dry-type Distribution Transformer at which point the applied product evaporates.
