What are the advantages in using hollow insulator?
Hollow insulator is one kind of the insulators, according to different materials insulator can be divided into porcelain insulator and composite insulator. As follow those mainly explain the composite hollow insulator.
Composite hollow insulator inclusions:
Composite hollow insulator consists of FRP core, silicone rubber shed, silicone rubber housing and end fittings. Composite hollow insulator is lighter than porcelain hollow insulator, easily to install; has anti-pollution ability and can be used heavy pollution area. FRP core can enhance composite insulators mechanical strength. Composite insulator is easy to produce, shorten production cycle.

Composite hollow insulator function:
Composite hollow insulator used to support, fixed current-carrying conductor, faces and phase between the conductor and the insulation. The product can device between different potential of current-carrying conductor insulation. Installing on overhead line composite insulator can receive the impact of the thunder and lightning, so can be used with lightning rod to avoid critical impluse flashover voltage.
Composite hollow insulator is a main type composite insulator, its function as well as other composite insulators. You want to learn more about composite insulator, you can visit high voltage insulator website.
