What machines are needed for 11kV polymer insulator production line?

Polymer insulators are important electrical items in electrical power overhead transmission, distribution, and substation lines. They provide reliable insulation between cables and iron towers, or between conductors and connecting fittings like clamps so that the electricity can be transmitted safely. With the global growth of the electrical industry, more and more people smell the potential […]

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 […]

Routine tests of composite insulator with voltage greater than 1000V in IEC 61109 2008

Last time we talked about sample test of silicone composite insulator for AC system above 1KV, the IEC 61109:2008 has defined it clearly. Today let’s the coming section”routine test” of polymeric insulator in this IEC 61109: 13 Routine tests 13.1 Mechanical routine test Every insulator shall withstand, at ambient temperature, a tensile load at RTL […]

Sample test method and rules of suspension and tension composite insulator in IEC 61109:2008

Sample test is a major method of insulator acceptance inspection for mass production. It is widely used by inspectors of insulators from manufacturers, power girds and electrical laboratories. Here we have definition, rules, test method and acceptance criteria of composite insulator of suspension type and tension type of international standard IEC 61109:2008 “spension and tension […]
