Transformer oil is a highly refined oil that is used to protect transformer against abrupt and prolonged heating, so it also has role as an insulator to the transformer.

The aniline point of an oil is defined as the minimum temperature at which equal volumes of aniline (C6H5NH2) and the desired oil are completely miscible.

The value gives an indication of the aromatic content of the oil, since aniline is an aromatic compound which is dissolved on heating by the aromatics in the oil. The greater the aniline point, the lower the aromatics in the oil. A higher aniline point also indicates a higher proportion of paraffin.
