Put More Than 25 Years of Polymer Experience to Design Composite Insulators
With a rich experience of more than 25 years in the field of Heat Shrinkable Technology, was quick to identify the benefits of using similar concept for composite polymer insulator technology to replace traditional materials such as Glass or Porcelain for Insulators. As a result of continued efforts and research a unique Polyolefin cladding material formulation have been evolved which is cross linked Polymer with excellent outdoor performance and other desired properties needed for installations of insulators in outdoor conditions.
Combined the technology of this high Performing Polymer material with high mechanical strength fiberglass reinforced rod and metal end fittings to produce a high quality Polytek composite Polymeric insulator for various end applications.
Insulators Design Concept (Unibody Design& Modular Design)
Unibody Design : insulators are one-piece injection molded directly to the rod and sealed to the end fittings with a bead of silicone to give the insulator high dielectric strength and protect it from all environmental conditions. This design is used for standard distribution dead end/ suspension insulators and Station/Post Insulators.
Modular Design : provides complete versatility for composite insulators. Individual molded weather sheds are assembled to the rod to meet specific length or electrical requirements. A high dielectric strength silicone gel is used as an interface.
Weather sheds and Coverings : The design covers for two options for housing elastomer which can either be Cross-linked Polyolefin or Silicone Rubber depending on customer preference. Both Elastomer housing is shown to defy the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays, Ozone, acid, contamination and moisture.
Fiberglass Rod : A high quality, corrosion resistant, fiberglass reinforced rod is the core of every insulator with ultimate mechanical strength at least twice the maximum working load.
End Fittings : Standard distribution dead/end suspension units are supplied with clevis and tongue fittings. Ball, socket, and eye fittings are also available. All are made of hot dipped galvanized high strength Carbon Steel (Stainless Steel available upon request). All end fittings on dead/end suspension insulators are attached by compression. A new developed crimping control technology monitors the assembly process of the metal fittings and ensures that crimping forces cause no damage to the fiberglass rod while achieving a crimp that will withstand the highest possible mechanical loads. Every insulator is proof tested to verify the crimp. Post and station Insulators fittings have a unique design. For railway applications, tension and strut composite insulators are available in a large variety of configurations.
The exterior appearance of a high-voltage insulator depends on a combination of various factors determining its specific shape. Designing an Insulator for optimum performance requires an exact knowledge and description of all application needs. Polytek Insulator design considers following design criteria to ensure excellent field performance and ZERO DEFECT end product.
The mechanical forces such as bending moments, compression, tension, torsion, etc. acting on the insulator and its connecting system must be accurately specified.
Data such as the lightning impulse flashover voltage, switching impulse flashover voltage and power-frequency flashover voltage define the necessary dielectric strength and insulator length.
Creepage distances are defined in accordance with IEC 60815 and with customers' requirements.
International standards, codes and test specifications are observed in the manufacture of the product. The design comply with IEC 61109 with up dated ammendments.
Special requirements (connecting dimensions, diameter, etc.) are considered during design.
