Composite Bushings with RTV Coatings Combat Pollution at Substation in Israel

June 2, 2018 • ARTICLE ARCHIVE, Bushings, Utility Practice & ExperienceComments (0)

The power system in Israel operates in a sub-tropical as well as desert environment. A long dry season lasts some eight months during which all types of contaminants – from marine to dust to industrial and agricultural – accumulate on insulators. This pollution layer tends to be adhesive and is therefore only partially removed during ...

Repairing RTV Coated Insulators & Composite-Housed Bushings

February 17, 2018 • ARTICLE ARCHIVE, Bushings, Insulators

Silicone rubber has been applied for decades as an insulation material for high voltage equipment because of its lower weight and lasting hydrophobicity. However, silicone’s resistance to weathering is weaker than that of traditional ceramic insulating...

Transformer Bushing Reliability Survey & Risk Mitigation Measures (Part 2 of 2)

February 17, 2018 • ARTICLE ARCHIVE, Bushings

Statistics show that bushings are one of the main contributors to transformer failure. Their failure therefore has huge impact on reliability as well as safety of the system and operators managing the asset. With this in mind, major utilities in southeast...

Experience in Mexico with Non-Ceramic Bushings in Contaminated & Seismic Areas

December 9, 2017 • ARTICLE ARCHIVE, Bushings

The first application of composite insulators in Mexico began in the mid 1990s with initial use limited to transmission lines in areas with pollution problems. A growing body of service experience eventually resulted in a national standard for such insulators...
