Project Description

30m Live Line Insulated Washer IW 232

High voltage insulator cleaning equipment IW 232 IEEE-957 + IEC 31472

Rated voltage 600kV (phase-phase) high voltage networks

«IW 2» High Series of Live-Line Washing Equipment are combined with aerial devices and offer enhanced washing capabilities on all types of transmission grids of Extra High Voltage (EHV).

Remote controlled washing robot with 2-axes rotation at the top of the insulated aerial platform combined with unique Telescopic + Articulated booms design provides excellent versatility of washing typical 3 phases lines and all sides of insulator.

Water Resistance and Water Levels are continuously checked by safety devices that automatically stops operation in case of exceeding safety values.
