Transformer explosions are relatively rare, in fact, only less than one percent will explode. Although this percentage is very small when they do explode it can be very deadly and cause a large interruption with toxic fires or even oil spills. Canadian power supplier has collaborated with comapny ABB on a recent project to design a transformer tank to be more flexible to allow the pressure buildup from inside to expand without causing a rupture or explosion. To read more on how the ABB calculated the measurements and materials needs in order to create this new alternative read this article. This new product will be able to prevent most tanks from explosions thus creating a safer area for people who work near these transformers and also to the environment with less risk of oil spills and fires.
