    Liquid samples that were drawn when the liquid was below 32 degrees F

    What happens when this is done?

    Is there somewhere you read 32F? Only thing I have read is the following:

    WARNING:
    Three-phase pad-mounted transformers use
    conventional transformer oil, R-Temp fluid, or
    Envirotemp™ FR3™ fluid for an insulating liquid.When
    the insulating liquid temperature is less than -20°C
    (-4°F) for conventional transformer oil, less than 0°C
    (32°F) for R-Temp fluid or less than -10°C (14°F) for
    Envirotemp™ FR3™ fluid, viscosity is reduced, which
    may reduce make and break capabilities of loadbreak
    devices. Below these temperatures, under-oil loadbreak
    accessories should not be used to make or break a
    load. Instead, de-energize transformer from a remote
    upstream source before operating under-oil loadbreak
    devices.

    I was doing the Neta I test Prep and that was one of the questions that was given to me and the only one I missed. When I missed it unlike other times it only gave me the option to discuss it instead of get information.

    Thank you so very much for answering the question for me it is much appreciated!!!

    Above or below freezing point shouldn't have any effect on an oil sample (other than it taking longer to extract).

    Operation of equipment itself would be a different topic.
