An electrical transformer designated as an industrial transformer does the same job as an ordinary model, but it has been designed to be more rugged than the standard model. This means they can withstand more wear and tear, and can take more punishment. They are built to be used in situations where ordinary transformers could wear out quickly. Industrial applications which run for long hours and demand high amounts of electricity are usually where these tougher, more durable electrical transformers are used. Transformers naturally generate high amounts of heat. An industrial transformer is built to withstand this over long periods, as well as temporary spikes in power demands. So is the equipment built to be used with such electrical transformers. Only those with sufficient experience should install an industrial transformer or attempt to service an electrical system which uses them.
