As can be gleaned from the name, ‘dry type’ transformers refer to air-cooled devices that lack liquids to cool the electrical coils. Fire-resistant dry type transformers are best suited to be installed in high-rise buildings, underground tunnels, steel factories, hospitals, school, chemical plants, and other places where fire safety is of paramount importance. Not causing any type of environmental deterioration, dry type transformers have proven to be highly reliable over the years.

Overview of Global Dry Type Transformer Market
Dry type transformers are characterized by lack of fire risk, light weight, less volume, and low installation and maintenance cost, which make these transformers advantageous over oil type transformers.
Worldwide, increasing manufacturing, industrial and natural resource exploration activities related with oil production, chemicals, and marine applications are some of the areas fueling the dry type transformer market.
However, low voltage and power ratings of these transformers, not being suitable for more than 2000KVA, limits the utilization of these devices. Thus, the growth of the dry type transformer market is impeded. Nevertheless, the flourishing oil and gas and chemicals sectors, which need a hazard-free operational environment, will offer ample opportunities to this market in the coming years.
sResin impregnated type and cast resin type are the two types of dry type transformers. Between the two, resin impregnated transformers have the advantage of not requiring replacement of the entire LV and HV winding of the electrical circuitry in the event of an accident; changing just the affected part of the winding suffices.
Some of the applications of dry type transformers are in the commercial sector, the industrial sector, the automobile industry, motor generators, and resistance heating.
