These covers are made of high-dielectric polyethylene. The wax-like surface provides a natural self-cleaning action and resists the effects of greases and other contaminants. The bright-orange color gives a visible warning to those who are working close to the equipment.
Chance conductor and insulator covers are designed to help protect the lineman while working close to energized conductors. They are rated phase-to-phase for voltages through 46kV and can be easily installed with a Grip-All clampstick. The conductor cover clips on and covers conductors up to 2 inches in diameter. A positive air gap is maintained by a special hanger system inside the cover. The conductor is locked in the hanger by a swinging latch that can be opened and closed with a hot stick.
The insulator cover is designed to be used in conjunction with two conductor covers on insulators above 13kV. It fits over the insulator and locks with a conductor cover on each end. A polypropylene rope swings under the crossarm and hooks with a clampstick, thus helping to prevent the insulator cover from dislodging due to bumping or wind gusts.
• Tested to ASTM F712.
Electrical: Tests using conductor covers in conjunction with insulator covers provided 46kV phase-to-phase protection for normal working conditions.
Temperature: Will not soften or deform at 170° F. Will not embrittle at -50° F.
