We have over 2000 transformers in stock now ready to ship up to 4000 KVA. We have low voltage, medium voltage, GPDT, control power transformers, and more. Our stock includes new, reconditioned, unused surplus, and used transformer inventory.
Reconditioning is the process of returning electrical equipment to safe and reliable operating condition based upon the design of the original manufacturer at the time of manufacturing. ROMAC regularly carries inventory from all the major transformer manufacturers, including MGM, Hammond, ACME, Federal Pacific, and SOLA.
ROMAC follows PEARL industry standards to recondition a transformer, including procedures to test, inspect, disassemble, recondition, and validate test the product. Reconditioning procedures include disassembly, cleaning, drying, deoxidizing, removal of corrosion, degreasing, plating, painting, lubricating, adjusting, filtering, and adding or replacing oil or gas. After reconditioning, subassemblies can be reinstalled in the now cleaned and painted enclosure or frame, including the addition of upgrades or options to improve the apparatus’s performance..
Assembly of the reconditioned components and subassemblies is followed by final inspection and testing. As with all testing, inspection and reconditioning operations, final inspection and test results are recorded onto the Evaluation and Test forms included with the standard.
If you know the stock code or part number of transformer you need, you can use our inventory search. If not, fill out the simple form below, and a ROMAC Sales Engineer will search for your specific item, or options, and get back to you within one business day.

From the original power source, such as the utility generator, transformers of medium--to high--voltage are used to step up or to step down the voltage for the most efficient and cost-effective transmission of electrical energy. They can be found in utility switchyards, on power poles, in shopping centers, schools, manufacturing and process plants, and more. Proper maintenance of transformers is critical, and adequate preparation for re-application is no less essential.
Common types of electrical transformers found in industry include, but are not limited to low- voltage dry-type (600V AC max. primary), low-voltage transformers control power, low-voltage transformers instrumentation voltage, low-voltage transformers instrumentation current, medium-voltage transformers dry-type, medium-voltage transformers pad mount oil-filled, medium-voltage transformers pad mount gas-filled and medium voltage transformers power oil-filled.
Low-voltage transformers are common in industrial, commercial and residential applications. As with medium-voltage units, low-voltage transformers are fed (primary) with one voltage and produce a different--secondary-- voltage. Most common are step-down transformers. In most places of business, the most common transformers are dry-type air-cooled units of single or three-phase that transform 480V to 240V, 208V or 120V.
Medium-voltage transformers with voltages ranging from 1500V to 72,000V are sometimes dry or air-insulated, but most often they are liquid-filled, usually with 10c mineral oil but sometimes with high flashpoint insulating fluid such as silicon fluid or R-Temp (reg) and several others.
In addition to indoor dry-type enclosures, there are dry-type weatherproof enclosed transformers and dry-type compartmental transformers. Some dry transformers are parts of unitized substations integrating primary and secondary switchgear in a conventional cabinet. Unitized substations can also be assembled using liquid-filled transformers; both can be trailer mounted for portability. Another type of dry-type unit is cast coil, in which a pre-wound coil is fully cast within an epoxy capsule, making it nearly impervious to environmental elements.
Compartmental transformers, often referred to as “pad mount,” are designed for high public traffic area installation, so they are made tamper-proof. All primary and secondary connections are made on the same side of the transformer in separate chambers behind separate lockable doors.
