Reasons for Washing Insulators
- The insulators of lines & equipment’s are contaminated due to dust, birds droppings, chemical pollution, Saline weather etc.
- The contaminated insulators are susceptible for flash over during humid atmosphere, dew or foggy weather etc. hence need to be cleaned.
- The contaminated insulators can be cleaned by hot line washing method for voltages including 400 Kv level.
- Ramelex Pvt. Ltd have developed their own hot line washing system for washing of insulators of EHV lines & substations.
1) No outage, so no interruption to consumer.
2) No revenue loss.
3) No emergency outage.
4) Contaminated disc insulators can be cleaned by hot line washing which avoids breakdown & failure due to insulator flash over.
