SPCC Requirements for Electric Transformers & Other Electrical Equipment

Oil-filled equipment is regulated under SPCC requirements - 40 CFR 112. This includes some very common types of equipment:

  • hydraulic systems,
  • lubricating systems,
  • gear boxes, e
  • lectrical transformers & other electrical equipment,
  • coolant and heat transfer systems.

Some electrical equipment, such as transformers, on a property may not be under the control of the facility. This equipment could be installed, owned and operated by the local power provider or municipality. The SPCC Rule still applies to this equipment, however the specific requirements may be different depending on who owns and operates the equipment.
