Indianapolis, Ind. & Ontario, Canada— Calumet Specialty Products Partner, L.P. and Aevitas Inc. have announced a partnership to bring improved access to premier transformer oil products to the Canadian market. Calumet’s new line of Caltran insulating oils will be distributed exclusively by Aevitas across Canada.
The new Caltran line of arctic-grade insulating oils feature exceptional low temperature fluidity, corrosion control and oxidation stability, making them an ideal solution for conditions in Canada. Caltran improves circulation and heat transfer. The product can withstand high levels of electrical field strength and assists in the prevention of corona discharge and arcing. The high level of refining removes corrosive sulfur compounds, resulting in corrosion control.
Calumet chose Aevitas to be the exclusive distributor of this product due to the company’s superior ability to stock, test, maintain and supply products in varying packaged and bulk quantities. Aevitas Inc. also owns and operates its own fleet of dedicated transformer oil tankers, ensuring rigorous quality standards are followed all the way through on bulk deliveries.
“Our goal is to get quality product in the hands of our customers as efficiently as possible, and Aevitas is the right partner to accomplish that,” said Scott Obermeier, EVP, Specialty Products and Solutions for Calumet. “We think our Caltran products are perfectly formulated for Canadian customers, and we’re excited to partner with Aevitas to bring our products to market.”
“Aevitas is excited to partner with Calumet , a company with a long standing track record of manufacturing best in class insulating oil product,” said Byron Day, President of Aevitas Inc. “Calumet is recognized as an industry leader for providing high quality products and Aevitas has the infrastructure and quality control measures to provide readily available premium insulating oil products to the Canadian marketplace.”
