Oil Filled Transformer


With a proven track record of more than a century, oil filled (liquid filled) transformers remain the most commonly used transformer system today for a variety of industrial, commercial and power utility applications. Since 1971, Virginia Transformer Corp (VTC) has built a reputation of it's own: Today our customers know us as the choice for high-quality, custom-designed products, exceptional customer service and delivery times unparalleled in the industry. Our distinction as the right choice for custom transformers dates to our origin when we launched our business as a transformer manufacturer for the underground mining industry. From day one our customers expected our liquid filled transformers to meet demanding system specifications such as low-profile construction, special high voltage / low voltage requirements and tough environmental conditions. Our ability to meet and often exceed unique, custom requirements remains at the heart of our business today. Building our business around yours.
