My Rating Form

  • Consists of number of porcelain discs connected in series by metal links in the form of a string.
  • Conductor is suspended at the bottom end of the string and the upper part is connected to the cross-arm of the tower.
  • Number of discs depend on the working voltage.
  • The disc insulator shall be of open profile aerodynamic type to permit a large degree of self-cleaning by wind, rain, etc
  • Used for suspending and supporting high voltage transmission lines.
  • String does not become useless even in the event of damage of one disc.
  • Suspension arrangement provides greater flexibility to the line hence mechanical stresses is lesser on the insulator.
