The results of an experimental study of the effects of streaming electrification on the heat transfer of transformer oil (Voltesso 35) in Plexiglas and paper/pressboard pipe models are reported. The magnitude and the polarity of the charge in the oil entering the test section was varied by using two different filters (Millipore cellulose and Sartorius fiber glass) in the upstream of the oil flow. An enhancement in heat transfer was observed with both types of filters in the Plexiglas model and with cellulose filter in the paper/pressboard model; whereas a reduction in heat transfer was observed with fiber glass filter in paper/pressboard model under similar flow rates and temperatures. With uncharged oil, heat transfer was either inhibited or no enhancement was noticed in both models. The results have been discussed considering the temperature gradients, the flow conditions and the electrical forces due to static charge in the liquid
