Three-Phase Pad-Mount Live Front Compartment Style

Howard Industries liquid-filled three-phase pad-mounted transformers are an excellent choice for any commercial or industrial underground distribution system. Typical applications include manufacturing facilities, refineries, office buildings, schools, hospitals, restaurants, warehouses, and retail stores. All Howard Industries transformers are designed, built, and tested in an ISO-9001 certified facility in accordance with applicable industry standards. All designs feature fully enclosed tamper resistant terminal compartments and can be supplied with dead-front or live-front construction, for loop or radial feed applications.

Howard Industries manufactures a complete line of transformers, all designed with increased margins of safety and reliability. Contact your distributor or factory representative for availability of other kVA sizes, voltage ratings, features, accessories and design standards not listed.
