Visakhapatnam, India, March 16, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Project Sales Corp, one of the leading insulator flashovers mitigation product suppliers in India now brings in 5 Compound for sale across India markets. 5 Compound, an economical alternative to long term protection of insulators with HVIC coatings, provides protection from periods ranging from 12 to 18 months to insulators in polluted or coastal environments. With its unique benefit of hydrophobic properties, the product forms a coating over the insulator surfaces to prevent formation of conductive paths. With excellent arc resistance properties the product helps in suppression of arcing and dry band formation which ultimately lead to expensive flashovers of equipments.
Working on the principle of saturation, the product needs to be replaced every 12 to 18 months depending on the level of contamination in the environment. That is, the conductive particles sitting over the surface are rendered hydrophobic by the free silicone molecules moving over the surface and rendering the particle hydrophobic, and gradually the entire material is saturated with contaminants and the material needs to be replaced with a fresh coating of the grease on the insulator surface.
Experience in several substation from 132 kv to 400 kv at Visakhapatnam in India shows the product can give a life of about 18 months in severe coastal environments as well.
With minimal investment in application of the grease during the regular scheduled maintenance, the utility can save on thousands of dollars in unexpected outages.
The product is available in 1 kg packs from Project Sales Corp. To place your orders call on Project Sales Corp at +91-98851-49412.
