Furan Content

Furan is a chemical family. Atleast five types of furan are produced due to ageing of paper and they get dissolved in oil. The lower the furan content, indicates lesser deterioration of cellulosic paper. For this test, dissolved furans are extracted from the oil then analysed by HPLC. This test is a good indication of remnant life of cellulosic insulation in the transformer.
