Suspension Insulators

Zinc Sleeve

Contaminated and wet insulators display a biased leakage current having DC component. This DC component causes electrolytic corrosion and reduction of pin diameter.

Zinc Sleeve

Pin Corrosion of suspension (disc) insulator

  • Resultant reduction of mechanical strength
  • Breakage of ceramic body due to expansion of pin

Pin Corrosion of suspension (disc) insulator

NGK developed Zinc Sleeve to prevent pin corrosion.

  • Galvanically positive
  • Large potential difference from iron
  • Sacrificial electrode at cement boundary
  • Bonded area of sleeve: Min. 80% of sleeve/pin interfacial area to prevent corona discharges
  • Purity of zinc >- 99.8% to prevent granular corrosion
