Live Line Insulator Washers
Power outages due to flashover of contaminated high voltage insulators are an increasing problem in most areas of the world. Live line washing of substation, distribution and transmission insulators is often the most productive method to maximize system performance.
In Cooperation with our international alliance Translink International Sales Ltd offers a wide variety of well-proven insulator maintenance equipment to wash all types of contaminant from insulators – in most cases while the lines are still energized.
The Insulator Washer packages can be operated by crews working from the ground, climbing the structure, remote controlled tele-washing or operating from a vehicle-mounted aerial platform.
Various types of units – skid mounts, trailers or packages that can be adapted to aerial device equipment allow the users to choose the appropriate insulator washer best suited to the particular conditions.
Important considerations in selecting the appropriate options are system voltage, insulator type, height of insulators to be washed, severity of the contamination and frequency of washing, wind conditions and access to the structures.
Live washing of insulators, even at the highest voltage levels, is possible with the correct nozzle pressures, water quality and safe washing distances recommended by Translink.
Various capacities of water tank are available, from 2000 to 18000 liters with standard sizes being 6500 and 4700 Liters.
