A white paper detailing the repairs on offer from H.V Bushing including returning broken, chipped and burnt porcelain insulators to full mechanical strength.
As a specialised bushing maintenance and repair business we are able to offer the following services – porcelain insulator repair, transformer bushing and through wall bushing oil sampling, fitting of replacement or remote pressure gauges, technical assistance, bushing refurbishment and bushing condition assessment.
Porcelain insulator repair
H.V. Bushing Services provides porcelain insulator repair services. Damaged porcelain insulators can be rebuilt and re-coloured as the original, providing a cost-effective alternative to bushing or insulator replacement.
This removes the obvious health and safety concerns associated with sharp broken porcelain particularly during cleaning procedures, sealing the surface against possible moisture ingress and reinstating creepage distances.
