Upgrade of crimping machine: more function, better appearance

With the world’s recovery from COVID-19 epidemic situation, manufacturers of composite insulators become active again. The first batch of upgraded polymer insulator crimping machines is about to go overseas to India Hyderabad. In the first half of this year, we have been dedicated to R&D of new appearance and optimized function of current testing machines […]

Alternatives solution of External Insulation for EHV and UHV Bushings

Different housings are available these days for the external insulation of EHV and UHV bushings. These include: porcelain, which may or may not also be coated with RTV silicone material to improve pollution performance; hybrid housings consisting of a porcelain core with a polymeric housing; and a composite housing based on an internal FRP tube […]

Composite insulator (Polymeric insulator)

What is a composite insulator? The composite insulator is also called the polymeric insulator. It is developed after toughened glass insulator and ceramic insulators, whose main insulation structure is consists of a fiberglass core (rod) and silicon housing and sheds. One both sides, 2 metallic fittings are installed on each side with crimping technics. These […]

1.Scope and object of IEC61109:2008 INSULATORS FOR OVERHEAD LINES – COMPOSITE SUSPENSION AND TENSION INSULATORS FOR A.C. SYSTEMS WITH A NOMINAL VOLTAGE GREATER THAN 1 000 V – DEFINITIONS, TEST METHODS AND ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA

Scope and object This International Standard applies to composite suspension/tension insulators consisting of a load-bearing cylindrical insulating solid core consisting of fibers – usually glass – in a resin-based matrix, a housing (outside the insulating core) made of polymeric material and end fittings permanently attached to the insulating core. Composite insulators covered by this standard […]

Test of sheds and sheath material of composite insulator

Composite insulator’s shed and sheath are be made of high temperature vulcanizing (HTV) type silicone rubber, having silicone polymer content by weight 30% minimum. Alumina Trihydrate (ATH) is used as a filler. The filler is properly mixed with silicone compounds to ensure uniform distribution. The thickness of the sheath shall be a minimum of 3 […]

Indian market grows on composite insulator field

As electrical industry grows with bigger demands and supplies, electrical high voltage insulators has entered a new stage of production furious. More and more factories in India, big or small, has smelled the chance and are eager to grasp the profit. When we talk about power construction, we feel difficult to ignore an important electrical […]

Uprating of composite insulators of OH lines

The creation of composite insulator started before the 1960s. This new insulator was firstly applied in America and then in France and Germany soon afterwards. It was quite slow for user to accept insulator with silicone rubber material in the beginning as most technical innovation would have some key problems to solve in the history. […]

Introduction of IEC61109 Insulators for overhead lines – Composite suspension and tension insulators for a.c. systems with a nominal voltage greater than 1 000 V – Definitions, test methods and acceptance criteria

Composite insulators consist of an insulating core, bearing the mechanical load protected by a polymeric housing, the load being transmitted to the core by end fittings. Despite these common features, the materials used and the construction details employed by different manufacturers may be quite different. Some tests have been grouped together as “Design tests”, to be performed only […]
