What is full form of RTV ?
RTV in world of electrical field stands for Room Temperature Vulcanizing. RTV (Room Temperature Vulcanizing) is a type of coating used to improve life of Insulators.
What is RTV Silicone Coating ?
Room temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone coating is a type of coating which is usually done on Porcelain insulators. The purpose of RTV silicone coating is to provide highly hydrophobic surface to insulators which limits the current leakage and also due to the insulator contamination it prevents flashovers.
We, Ramelex Pvt. Ltd. are the integration partner of CSL Silicones Inc. Canada, the market leader in RTV Silicone High Voltage Insulator Coating and we have capability to undertake RTV Silicone Coating of Transmission Insulators and Substation Insulators with minimum downtime and in-situ conditions along with a corona study before and after the RTV Silicone Coating in Pune.
Our flagship technology is Si-COAT® 570™ HVIC (high voltage insulator coating). This material has been applied to overhead transmission line insulators numbering in the millions and reaching up to 800 kV service voltages. Additionally, we have coated substations of all voltages numbering in the tens of thousands.
The coating is not affected by UV light, corona discharge, chemical contaminants, salt, extreme temperatures or corrosive environments
Effect of RTV Silicone Coating on Insulator
The benefits of RTV coated Porcelain insulators are two fold –
- A) Sturdiness of Porcelain insulators and pollution performance of Silicone insulators.
- B) It also reduces the O&M cost on account of frequent cleaning and washing of insulators in high pollution zones.
