High voltage insulator price
The cost of an insulator:
Among these high voltage insulator price factors, some will influence the quality of a insulator product:
Material: if the material is not good, it will decrease the strength of the insulator, and electrical puncture value and some other inner quality, this is the most important for an insulator, especially ceramic insulator.
Manufacturing process: control every process needs good management and insulator technique.
Insulator Tests: insulator test is very important, since no factory can confirm good quality for each product, and this will need full tests to eliminate bad ones, and confirm every one left is good quality. If save this or part of this, the cost can reduce a lot, but this is a must.
Some of the cost structure will influce the final high voltage insulator price:
Have you ever happened to approve a quotation after comparing several suppliers and then when you really purchase, they will say they didn’t add some additional cost on this?
Packing: Are they seaworthy packing? Are they with pallets?
Transportation cost: Are they ex-works prices, or include the cost to send to sea port or air port?
Port surcharge: Are they quote you FOB high voltage insulator price, FOB or CFR or CIF high voltage insulator price all include port surcharge.
Along with the extreme weather coming frequently in the whole world, and this will let insulators and our power system face more sereve situation, dare you still buy poor quality insulator products and only force the manufacturer to give you lower high voltage insulator price?
