ZSP Station Class Polymer Arresters

The type "ZSP" Station Class arresters offer the benefits of polymer housings for system voltages up to 198kV.

The arresters are approximately 25% the weight of the porcelain equivalent. Handling and installation become much easier tasks.

The risk of damage to the housing is reduced compared to porcelain.

Description

Design:

  • The design consists of a number of metal oxide valve elements contained within a fiberglass winding and then inserted into the polymer housing.
  • ZSP arresters are shippped as single units for all ratings: 3kV through 198kV.
  • There is no need to combine sections, even for the 198kV duty cycle rating.
  • The metal oxide valve elements combine excellent protective characteristics with steady state performance to maximize protection over many years of service.

Performance:

  • ZSP are available in duty cycle ratings of 3kV through 198kV (2.55kV through 158kV MCOV) and are designed for system line-line voltages of 2.4 through 230kV.
  • The arrester designs are tested in accordance with the latest industry standards for metal oxide arresters.
  • The "ZSP" arresters consistently withstand the following minimum design tests.
  • High Current-Short Duration: 100kA crest
  • Transmission Line Discharge: Exceeds ANSI/IEEE and IEC class 2 standard requirements
  • Nominal discharge current per IEC: 10kA
  • Line Discharge Class per IEC: Class 2 Minumum
  • Energy Capability: 6.1kJ/kV
  • MCOVFault Withstand Capability: 80kA rms sym
  • Working cantilever strength:10,000 in. -lbs.REA Listed

Fault Current Withstand:

    • The severity of a failure depends on the duration and magnitude of the available fault current conducting through the arrester at the time of the failure.
    • This type of arrester, with its polymer housing, eliminates the potential danger of porcelain fragmentation.
    • The design uses a fiberglass epoxy wrap to relieve the pressure that is present during a failure.

Three Phase Installation Layout:

    • The holes for mounting are .56 inches (14.2 mm) for 1/2" bolts.The tripod base has three holes with a 10" bolt circle at 120.
    • Mounting bolts and washers are not furnished with the arrester.

Name plates:

    • In addition to the information that is included on the tripod base, a name plate is attached to the casting to provide all of the required arrester details.
    • The catalog number, the rated voltage, the maximum continuous operating voltage, and the pressure relief current rating are shown.
    • The serial number includes information about the time of manufacture.
