What is the difference between shackle insulator and spool insulator?
Porcelain Shackle insulator is a kind of similar to the pin insulator and spool insulator. Shackle insulator on shed with pin type insulator under the shed is similar, but the shackle insulator under an shed with spool insulator under the shed is similar. Such a shape characteristic is in order to more convenient when fixed conductor. Shackle insulator used in the way of lower voltage wire, change line direction.
Porcelain Spool insulator looks like a wheeled appearance, but on the above shed a ring groove, is where the fixed conductor. Spool insulator is installed in the way of low voltage wire, have the effect of fixed and rotating Angle. Spool insulator is through the bracket fixed to the pole or on the wall. In the residential electricity, spool insulator is a widely application.
Shackle insulator is better than the antifouling performance of the spool insulator, because shackle insulator on above shed design can effectively reduce the impurity content on the surface of the insulator. Spool insulator and shackle insulator have no difference in application, just because the habit of different in different areas. African users like to use shackle insulator, Europe and the United States users prefer a spool insulator.
