Gala Insulation Enhancement Products such as Heat Shrinkable Tubes, Tapes, Sheets, Pre-moulded Protection Covers, etc. provide a long term, cost effective & easy to install retrofit solution to eliminate power outages caused by bird and animals.
Electrical Distribution Equipment with bare bus bars, conductors & connections is always at risk to having phase to ground accidentally bridged. As well as the obvious problems caused to the network, such events can also endanger protected wildlife. Bird & animals often enter substations & interfere with overhead lines causing faults by bridging air clearances.
Substation equipment is vulnerable to flashovers caused by accidental bridging of phases, or phase to earth.
Almost any event of this nature can be prevented by insulating the strategically vulnerable bare metal work with a combination of Gala Insulation Enhancement Products.
