Oil enclosures shall be provided with trapped drains in cases where the exposure and the quantity of oil involved are such that removal of oil is important. 8.2 Dry-Type Transformers Installed Indoors. Transformers rated 112-1/2 KVA or less shall have separation of at least 300 mm from combustible material unless separated therefrom by a fire-resistant hear-insulating barrier, or unless of a rating not exceeding 600 volts and completely enclosed except for ventilating openings. Transformers of more than 112-1/2 KVA rating shall be installed in a transformer room of fire-resistant construction unless they are constructed with Class B (80°C rise) or Class H (150°C rise) insulation, and are separated from combustible material not less than 1.85 M horizontally and 3.7 M vertically or are separated therefrom by a fire-resistant hear-insulating barrier. Transformers rated more than 35,000 volts shall be installed in a vault. 8.3 Askarel-Insulated Transformers Installed Indoors. Askarel-insulated transformers rated in excess of 25 KVA shall be furnished with a pressure-relief vent. Where installed in a poorly ventilated place they shall be furnished with a means for absorbing any gases generated by arcing inside the case, or the pressure relief vent shall be connected to a chimney or flue which will carry such gases outside the building.
