Distribution Deadend Insulators

MPS Distribution Deadend Insulator Differentiation


CR E-Glass Core MPS uses Boron Free Corrosion Resistant E-Glass on all its insulators for its high
electrical Integrity & high resistance to acid corrosion. The boron free formulation of the fiberglass core makes it resistant to nitric acid attacks. CR E-Glass allows MPS to claim a truly

BRITTLE FRACTURE FREE INSULATORS. Silicone Rubber MPS uses a Silicone formulation that is unchanged since the early 80s.
The Si-O molecular bonds (inorganic backbone of Silicone) are very stable and have bond strengths higher than sunlight, making the silicone resistant to UV degradation. In addition to providing protection against ultraviolet radiation, electrical aging, and corona effect, silicone exhibits hydrophobic properties; which provide excellent recovery characteristics to control leakage currents in highly polluted or coastal environments. MPS silicone rubber formulation has consistently outperformed other silicone formulations in its hydrophobicity, its hydrophobicity recovery rate, and enhanced electrical properties in contaminated environments.

DS-M Series Distribution Deadends


Conventional design deadend insulator Silicone shed housing is injection molded onto and bonded to the CR rod core. Ductile iron end fittings are crimped to the fiberglass core in a tightly controlled process that ensures predictable tensile strength. Unique multi level sealing process.

FIBERLINK Distribution Deadends


Wound Fiberglass Core and metal eyelets make up the basic structure of this new and unique insulator. Silicone rubber is molded onto the wound core. The lack of metal end fittings result in a greater dry arc distance, which increases electrical performance. Light weight insulator.

INJECTION MOLD-OVER WEATHERSHEDS & COVERINGS


To protect the fiberglass rod, the housing is injection molded using high temperature and high pressure to bond Silicone Rubber to the surfaces of both the rod and end fittings into One Seamless Unit. By permanently protecting against rod degradation due to entry of moisture and contaminants, surface tracking and arcing of the resin rod is prevented.

Insulator Cross Section

HOUSING MATERIAL
Silicone In addition to providing protection against ultraviolet radiation, electrical aging, and corona effect, silicone exhibits hydrophobic properties. The hydrophobic properties of the silicone provide excellent recovery characteristics to control leakage currents in highly polluted or coastal environments. MPS silicone rubber formulation has consistently outperformed other silicone formulations in its hydrophobicity, its hydrophobicity recovery rate, and enhanced electrical properties in contaminated environments.

MECHANICAL STRENGTH
Maximum Design Cantilever Load (MDCL) - The maximum load that can be applied to the insulator for long periods of time, without damaging or fatiguing the insulator. Specified Cantilever Load (SCL) Maximum rating or Ultimate Strength of the insulator. Specified Tensile Load - This is the maximum tensile (transverse) rating of the insulator.

Bonded interface between rod, rubber, and metal end fitting forming impenetrable moisture barrier.

COMPRESSION END FITTINGS


All end fittings on injection molded distribution insulators are attached using a crimping process to achieve the required tensile strength. The cast iron end fittings are galvanized for protection against corrosion, and are compatible with aluminum suspension clamps and conductors on line posts.

Silicone Rubber
The Si-O molecular bonds (inorganic backbone of Silicone) are very stable and have bond strengths higher than sunlight, making the silicone resistant to UV degradation. In addition to providing protection against ultraviolet radiation, electrical aging, and corona effect, silicone exhibits hydrophobic properties, which provide excellent recovery characteristics to control leakage currents in highly polluted or coastal environments. The MPS silicone rubber formulation has consistently outperformed other silicone formulations in its hydrophobicity, its hydrophobicity recovery rate, and enhanced electrical properties in contaminated environments.

Injection Molded
To protect the fiberglass rod, the housing is injection molded using high temperature and high pressure to bond to the surfaces of both the rod and end fittings into One Seamless Unit. By permanently protecting against rod degradation due to entry of moisture and contaminants, surface tracking and arcing of the resin rod is prevented.

Crimped End Fittings


All end fittings on injection molded distribution insulators are attached using a crimping process to achieve the required tensile strength. The cast iron and steel forged end fittings are galvanized for protection against corrosion, and are compatible with aluminum suspension clamps and conductors on line posts. This document intends to help users replace ANSI TR porcelain with Composite Station Posts The comparison with ANSI C29.9 Technical Reference No.s applies only for dimensional and electrical values. The Maximum Working Load (MWL) of the relevant TR porcelains are taken to be 40% of their cantilever rating. The Maximum Design Cantilever Load (MDCL) of the composite insulator is defined as the maximum load that can be permanently applied to the composite insulator without mechanical degradation. The Specified Mechanical Load (SML) is the cantilever load at which irreversible mechanical damage may be evident. In this document, the SML is the withstand cantilever strength of the composite insulator. The Height of the composite insulator matches exactly the height of the relevant porcelain insulator. The Deflection Values given in this document corresponds to the deflections measured at the relevant ANSI TR porcelain MWL. To evaluate deflections for other loads, the ratio of deflection / load is constant up to the MDCL.

Suspension Insulators
The MPS Complete Solution

CR E-Glass Core MPS uses Boron Free Corrosion Resistant E-Glass on all its insulators for its High
Electrical Integrity & High Resistance to acid corrosion. The boron free formulation of the fiberglass core makes it resistant to nitric acid attacks. There has never been a brittle facture failure of a CR Eglass insulator in over 30 years of use.

Silicone Rubber MPS uses a Silicone formulation that has been unchanged since the early 80s. The SiO molecular bonds (inorganic backbone of Silicone) are very stable and have bond strengths higher than sunlight, making the silicone resistant to UV degradation. In addition to providing protection against ultraviolet radiation, electrical aging, and corona effect, silicone exhibits hydrophobic properties; which provide excellent recovery characteristics to control leakage currents in highly polluted or coastal environments.
The MPS silicone rubber formulation has consistently outperformed other silicone formulations in its hydrophobicity, its hydrophobicity recovery rate, and enhanced electrical properties in contaminated environments.

P-S-T End Fitting Seal The P-S-T sealing system is a triple seal design with built-in redundancies. Primary seal rubber sheath compressed into chamfer of end fitting. Secondary seal RTV silicone applied to core / sheath / end fitting interface. Tertiary seal final external RTV seal applied to sheath
/ end fitting interface. The P-S-T system has clearly shown its superiority to withstand moisture penetration.

Stacked Shed The MPS Stacked Shed configuration offers inherent protection against material aging in
critical areas of the sheath and resists the resultant material erosion when installed in highly contaminated environments (resistance to Water Droplet Corona). In addition, stacked shed profiles enhance the ability of the insulator to resist mechanical damage in these most critical areas during transportation and installation.

Corona Rings for Suspension Insulators


High voltages can result in unwanted noise (RIV) and corona. To minimize the effects of corona, corona rings are applied to one or both ends of the insulator (attached onto the end fittings). Typically, for system voltages 230kV and above a corona ring or combination of rings is necessary. However, some applications may require rings at lower system voltages. Refer to the Corona Ring section of the Application Guide for detailed information or contact the factory. MPS corona rings are designed around the needs of the end user. It is easy to install, unidirectional (not able to install in the wrong direction), and can be installed or removed with hot stick tools. By making the ring a one piece design, we have eliminated the problem of missing or lost parts. This was made possible by designing a unique clamping mechanism that uses one captive bolt to secure the ring to the insulator. Additionally, the clamping section was designed such that the ring can only be installed in one direction, which eliminates the problem of misapplied rings. As a final step, the ring was designed with a split (opening) to allow installation with hot stick tools.

Horizontal Line Post Insulators

MPS offers 2 distinctive silicone line post insulator designs to comply with all the requirements of the market place. Standard designs, from 69kV to 230kV, are supplied out of the York (SC) plant using an injection molding process. These post products are manufactured to forecast in high volumes with standard lengths & leakages. Custom designs and ratings 230kV & above are produced at the Franklin Park [Reliable] (IL) plant using the extruded rod shed process, where the posts are produced to customer order, per customer specification (custom strength, length, & leakage).

York - Injection Molded Line Posts


The insulator silicone housing is injection molded, using high temperature and high pressure injection, onto the FRP rod and onto the end fittings to protect the fiberglass rod and prevent ingress of moisture. The standard leakage distances offered on these products provide were designed for use in high contamination environments. These heavy contamination designs provide between 25mm/kv to 31mm/kV leakage.

Silicone Rubber MPS uses a Silicone formulation that has been unchanged since the early 80s. The Si-O molecular bonds (inorganic backbone of silicone) are very stable and have bond strengths higher than sunlight, making the silicone resistant to UV degradation. In addition to providing protection against ultraviolet radiation, electrical aging, and corona effect, silicone exhibits hydrophobic properties; which provide excellent recovery characteristics to control leakage currents in highly polluted or coastal environments.

H1 & H2 Fixed Gain Base (Cast Ductile Iron)

Bendable Base Formed steel base that mates with an anchor end fitting of the insulator via 2 mounting bolts. Bendable
bases come in gain and flat designs, with 0 & 12 upsweep angles, as required.

Fixed Base Cast iron base that mates with a 5 bolt circle end fitting of the insulator (4 bolts). Where the bendable
designs allow for some articulation of the insulator, the fixed base does not. The fixed design comes in gain and flat designs, with a standard 12 upsweep angle.

Gain Base base design used to mate the insulator to a round pole surface. This base is attached to the pole through the
center bolt mount holes.

Flat Base base design used to mate the insulator to a flat surface, using either the 4 bolt holes along the ears of the
base, or the 2 center mount bolt holes.

Horizontal Line Post Insulators

Corona Rings for Line Post Insulators


High voltages can result in unwanted noise (RIV) and corona. To minimize the effects of corona, corona rings are applied to one or both ends of the insulator (attached onto the end fittings). Typically, for system voltages 230kV and above a corona ring or combination of rings is necessary. However, some applications may require rings at lower system voltages. Refer to the Corona Ring section of the Application Guide for detailed information or contact the factory.

Silicone Rubber
The Si-O molecular bonds (inorganic backbone of Silicone) are very stable and have bond strengths higher than sunlight, making the silicone resistant to UV degradation. In addition to providing protection against ultraviolet radiation, electrical aging, and corona effect, silicone exhibits hydrophobic properties, which provide excellent recovery characteristics to control leakage currents in highly polluted or coastal environments. The MPS silicone rubber formulation has consistently outperformed other silicone formulations in its hydrophobicity, its hydrophobicity recovery rate, and enhanced electrical properties in contaminated environments.

Injection Molded
To protect the fiberglass rod, the housing is injection molded using high temperature and high pressure to bond to the surfaces of both the rod and end fittings into One Seamless Unit. By permanently protecting against rod degradation due to entry of moisture and contaminants, surface tracking and arcing of the resin rod is prevented.

Crimped End Fittings


All end fittings on injection molded distribution insulators are attached using a crimping process to achieve the required tensile strength. The cast iron and steel forged end fittings are galvanized for protection against corrosion, and are compatible with aluminum suspension clamps and conductors on line posts. This document intends to help users replace ANSI TR porcelain with Composite Station Posts The comparison with ANSI C29.9 Technical Reference No.s applies only for dimensional and electrical values. The Maximum Working Load (MWL) of the relevant TR porcelains are taken to be 40% of their cantilever rating. The Maximum Design Cantilever Load (MDCL) of the composite insulator is defined as the maximum load that can be permanently applied to the composite insulator without mechanical degradation. The Specified Mechanical Load (SML) is the cantilever load at which irreversible mechanical damage may be evident. In this document, the SML is the withstand cantilever strength of the composite insulator. The Height of the composite insulator matches exactly the height of the relevant porcelain insulator. The Deflection Values given in this document corresponds to the deflections measured at the relevant ANSI TR porcelain MWL. To evaluate deflections for other loads, the ratio of deflection / load is constant up to the MDCL.

Corona (Grading) Rings


Recommended for most applications with B.I.L. > 900kV. At lower voltages, corona rings may be considered for areas of high local contamination, and / or with altitudes > 3300ft. Where MPS considers them necessary, corona rings will be included in proposals.

Adaptor Plates
To comply with ANSI standards on 7 BCD fittings, MPS has adapted the use of 1 adaptor plates 5-7 shown here. The top adaptor plate, when needed, has integral slotted holes to facilitate alignment during erection of bus supports.
The use of adaptor plates increases the height of insulators by 1 or 2. For retrofitting, it is possible to adjust the total height to original TR value. Contact Factory.

Corona Rings for Station Post Insulators


High voltages can result in unwanted noise (RIV) and corona. To minimize the effects of corona, corona rings are applied to one or both ends of the insulator (attached onto the end fittings). Typically, for system voltages 230kV and above a corona ring or combination of rings is necessary. However, some applications may require rings at lower system voltages. Refer to the Corona Ring section of the Application Guide for detailed information or contact the factory.

For Insulators 230kV and above, MPS recommends use of Corona Rings. The Application Table above depicts typical corona ring usage on MPS station post insulators. For corona ring usage on special applications, environments, and elevations; please contact MPS.

Braced Post Insulators

Transmission line design must take into account economics, right-of-way, aesthetics, construction efficiency, and reliability. The composite braced post design is the clear choice to achieve each of these sometimes conflicting objectives. Composite Braced Posts allow the use of monopole structures vs. traditional lattice and H-frame construction significantly reducing the visual impact of the line as well as the right-of-way required to construct it. Composite Braced Posts vastly improve the vertical loading capability of conventional line posts allowing for greater span lengths and less total structures. Because they are composite and are made of silicone rubber, they also offer advantages of light weight, vandal resistance, and contamination performance unmatched by other insulator designs. Braced Post Assemblies are used effectively at system voltages from 69kv to 345kv. The composite braced post offers both urban aesthetics as well as a low environmental impact.

Braced Post Insulators


Braced Post: Unique insulator design that combines the cantilever properties of a horizontal line post with the tension strength of a suspension insulator to make a high strength insulator assembly. The suspension insulator, or brace, is attached to the line post and to the tower via connection hardware. When loaded, the brace goes into tension, and is the primary support mechanism for the assembly. The line post provides stability for transverse (tension & compression) & longitudinal loads exerted onto the assembly. Connection Hardware: The hardware used to connect the brace to the post and tower can be supplied in a variety of combinations. Typically, the hardware used is greater than or equal to the SML rating of the brace insulator, and the type of connections is determined by the end fittings supplied on the suspension.
Options for connection hardware discussed in later sections.

Vertical Load: (MDCL) Downward load applied to the assembly, usually determined by the weight of the conductor. Tension Load: Transverse load pulling perpendicularly away from the tower, essentially putting the line post in tension. Compression Load: Transverse load pulling perpendicularly into the tower, compressing the line post towards the tower. Longitudinal Load: Side load applied to the assembly. Ideally, the load on each side of the assembly will be equal / balanced, resulting in no longitudinal load. Longitudinal loading is critical when loads are unbalanced and for broken conductor consideration. Combined Load Curves: Load curve that combines the effects of the various loads and plots working and ultimate strength of the assembly. Load curves are supplied upon request. Working Load Curve: The maximum load that can be applied to the insulator for long periods of time, without damaging or fatiguing the insulator. Ultimate Load Curve: The load at which the assembly approaches its ultimate strength, point of failure. Braced Post Load Application: The maximum load (or worst case load) of a specific application should fit right at or below the working load curve for that respective design. This max load is determined by the customer, and should take into account environmental influences (wind, ice, etc) along with the utilities safety factor practice. Max load applications that surpass the working curve require upgrades in strength for the braced post. Strength Upgrades: Depending on the specific loading requirements, there are many ways to upgrade the strength of a braced post, listed below are a few of the most common upgrades. Increase the SML of the brace insulator [~ increase Vertical Loading Capability] Increase the rod diameter of the line post [~ higher Vertical / Transverse Loading Capability] Change from fixed base to swivel base [~ improves Longitudinal Loading Capability] Dimensional design changes (Changes to upsweep angle, brace angle, height, etc.)

Braced Post Insulators

Insulator Electrical Performance: The electrical values of an insulator are driven by the dry arc distance, and the insulators contamination performance is dictated by the leakage distance. Dry Arc Distance: the shortest distance metal to metal up and along the insulator tangent to the sheds. The electrical values for 60Hz & critical impulse flashovers are statistically derived by the dry arc distance of the insulator. Assembly Strike Distance: in a combination assembly, the individual dry arc distances of each insulator are usually not the shortest paths metal to metal. This shorter path or dry arc for the assembly is called the strike distance, which could be the distance from the post base to the brace end fitting or corona ring, or it could be the distance to the conductor hardware, especially on double bundled assemblies with horizontal yoke plates. The strike distance drives the electrical values of the braced post assembly.

The strike distance of the braced post assembly is typically shorter than the dry arc distances of either the post or brace insulators. Therefore, the electrical values of the individual insulators are greater than the electrical values of the assembly. The sketch above shows the various strike distances of the assembly, the shortest of which determines the electrical values.

Leakage Distance: the continuous path across the insulator from metal to metal, measured across the profile of each shed. The leakage distance is controlled by the number of sheds on the insulator. Assembly Leakage Distance: the leakage distance for a braced post assembly is the shortest leakage distance of the 2 insulators that make up the assembly. If the post has 230 of leakage, and the brace has 180 of leakage, the braced post leakage distance is 180.

Recommended Corona Ring Application for the Braced Post


Recommended Corona Ring Application
230kV Brace Post
Brace Ring Post Ring

345kV 12" Ring 6" Ring

8" Ring None

High voltages can result in unwanted noise (RIV) and corona. To minimize the effects of corona, corona rings are applied to one or both of the insulators of the assembly. Typically, for system voltages 230kV and above a corona ring or combination of rings is necessary. However, some applications may require rings at lower system voltages. The table above shows the recommended corona ring applications for 230kV & 345kV. The ultimate decision of corona ring application is determined by the customer and by the environmental factors where the assembly will be used.

Braced Post Insulators


Braced Post Design Options

Insulator Options
Line Post: Typically, the line post of the braced post assembly will have a tongue line end fitting (F), and a bendable base tower connection (E). The bendable base is available as a gain or flat design type, or it can be replaced with a swivel or pivoting base, depending on the requirements of the application. Brace Insulator: The suspension insulator that makes up the brace can be comprised of many end fitting combinations, per customer preference. The Eye / Eye combination is a commonly used design, it offers a greater degree of articulation when combined with anchor shackles.

Bendable Gain

Bendable Flat

Swivel Base

Bendable Base Formed steel base that mates with an anchor end fitting on the insulator via 2 mounting bolts. These bases provide some vertical articulation of the post, which offers adjustment for the brace and connection hardware to the pole. Bendable bases come in gain and flat designs, with 0 & 12 upsweep angles, as required for by application. Gain Base base design used to mate the insulator to a round pole surface. This base is attached to the pole through the center bolt mount holes. Flat Base base design used to mate the insulator to a flat surface, using either the 4 bolt holes along the ears of the base, or the 2 center mount bolt holes Swivel Base or Pivoting Base This base provides articulation in the vertical and longitudinal directions. This design is typically used in areas where high longitudinal loading is required to compensate for unbalanced loads or broken conductor conditions. Pole Band Assemblies Another method of attaching a braced post assembly to a tower is by means of a pole band assembly. Pole bands are used on poles when mount holes are not available and cannot be drilled, or for maintenance / emergency response applications. Contact MPS for additional details.

Brace Connection Hardware Options


The brace of the braced post assembly can be made up of many different insulator and hardware combinations, depending on customer preference and design. The suspension insulator can make up the entire length of the brace, connected to the post and tower via anchor shackles. This is the simplest and more cost efficient design. The brace can consist of an electrically proportionate length suspension, combined with shackles for G1. & G2, and some form of steel hardware for item G3 (turnbuckle, straps, links, etc).
Options for G1. anchor shackle (SL = Eye) socket /clevis (SL=Y-Clevis) Options for G2. anchor shackle (SL = Eye) Options for G3. turnbuckle

EF Options for SSL


eye / eye eye / ball Y-clevis / ball

Custom Braced Post Designs

The MPS Braced Post section of this catalog has many standard designs available for system voltages 69kV through 230kV. If the designs shown in the catalog do not exactly satisfy the requirements of an application, custom braced post designs are available. At the end of the braced post section is a braced post request worksheet, which is designed to communicate the specific details of a custom braced post design to MPS. The information provided on this sheet is used by MPS Design Engineering to develop the best fit design per customer request. In order to properly develop these designs, it is important to know the specific requirements of the application along with clarification about which details are most critical and which have some flexibility within the design. More Information = better designs and faster response time Braced Post Assembly Details: This section outlines the geometric / dimensional requirements of the assembly, including assembly height, section length, and angles. Ideally, the dimensions required would be expressed as a nominal value, with some +/- tolerances. When a specific dimension is absolutely required, it should be identified as critical. Not every dimension can be critical, as some dimensions of the assembly are driven by others, therefore only 2-3 dimensions should be marked as critical. Mechanical Loading Requirements: This section identifies the loading characteristics of the application. These values should be ultimate loads the assembly will be expected to withstand over long periods of time, and should fit within the working load curve of the assembly. Electrical Requirements: This section determines the minimal requirement of the assembly with respect to electrical performance. Minimum leakage distance (and / or description of contamination level for the application) Minimum strike distance / dry arc Minimum requirements for 2 of the 4 electrical values (ex. Dry FO & CIFO+) Corona ring requirement Assembly Details: The remaining sections identify the various options of the assembly Line post base requirement Extension hardware Suspension end fitting requirements Conductor information (armor rod) Hardware attachments Conductor attachment hardware

Hardware Assemblies & Packaging


MPS provides a single catalog number & drawing for each braced post assembly, whether it is a standard catalog item, or a custom design. The catalog number includes all the insulators, connection hardware, and conductor hardware as required, with all the various catalog numbers of the individual components bundled into one catalog number. Packaging: There are several options for packaging insulator assemblies. Typically, the individual components are bulk packed separately and mated in the field by the customer. Custom packs and tower packs are available upon request. These value added options reduce costs in the field, help minimize lost or missing parts, and reduce the time from receipt of goods to installation. Tower Packs: Unique packaging where each component of the assembly is packed into one crate, usually in quantities of 3, 6, or 9. MPS verifies fit and quantity of the components of the assembly. The crate can be marshaled out to the job site and dropped at the tower, where it can then be assembled and installed. Custom Packs: MPS packages components together as required by the customer.
