COMPOSITE LONG ROD INSULATORS
Asiatic manufacturers world class range of composite insulators for over head transmission & distribution lines.
A wide variety of composite insulators are available with various kinds of end fittings to meet exact requirements of the customer.
The use of Polymeric/Silicone Rubber base insulators have several advantages over the conventional ceramic insulators Like light weight, unbreakable, hydrophobic, resistant to ozone & UV radiations, resistant to earthquake shocks , self cleaning properties & resistant to vandalism.
Manufactured to 1EG 61109.
The external sheds are moulded from Stone rubber on the latest state of the art injection moulding machinery from Desma, Germany. The silicone rubber is procured from world renowned companies across the world.
The end fittings which are intended to connect to a supporting structure or to a conductor are made up of malleable iron and are duly Hot IP galvanized. O The metal end fittings are crimped on microprocessor controlled automatic hydraulic crimping machines. O Various types Long Rod Insulators are available in voltage ratings of 11 kV to 33 kV Ball & Socket; Tongue & Clevis types of end fittings.
The core is the insulating part of the composite insulator and is made up of fibre glass rod and is designed to ensure the necessary mechanical characteristics. The FRP rod used in the manufacturing of Silicone rubber insulators is one of core material which is manufactured by protrusion process using boron free ECR grade glass fiber having required mechanical & electrical characteristics.
Asiatic has the requisite infrastructure to carry out routine tests on the insulators as desired by international/national standards like: Dry power frequency voltage test , Mechanical Tensile test, Thermo mechanical test chamber, U.V. weathering Rubber tensile test etcas perl EC 61109.
