Managing your bushing equipment can get to be expensive - even with a life expectancy of 40+ years. Here are three easy ways to save as you evaluate your substation equipment.
- Test Terminals - Regular testing allows you to extend the service life of your equipment while lessening the risk failure and subsequent lost revnue. Test terminals also generally allow testing to be accomplished without the expense of a boom/bucket truck or extra personnel.
- Replacement Bushings - Replacing your old bushings with new PCORE® and/or Electro Composites bushings is an economical way to extend the life of your existing transformer or oil circuit breaker for a fraction of what replacing that equipment would cost.
- Bushing Repair - Many parts on your original bushing can be reused, resulting in savings of up to 60% when compared to the cost of a new bushing. Also, with a PCORE repair, your bushings are equipped with the same warranty terms as new bushings.
