ReCoTec® hollow composite insulators

Under the ReCoTec® (Reinhausen Composite Technology) brand name, we manufacture hollow composite insulators with silicone shielding based on our ROTAFIL® cylinders. They offer a number of advantages compared to conventional porcelain insulators. They are substantially lighter, extremely durable and earthquake-resistant. They maintain their water-repellent characteristics, and thus their excellent insulating properties, even under heavily fouled conditions. In the event of failure or external damage, they are explosion-proof and do not scatter hazardous parts. Our innovations, such as conical ReCoTec® insulators, ReCoTec® with integrated fiber-optic cables and ReCoTec® with flanges made of FRP material, help our customers expand and secure their market leadership.

Primary advantages of composite insulators:                                                                        

HYDROPHOBIC Outstanding insulation performance
 
LIGHT Up to 40% less weight
 
FLEXIBLE Superior earthquake resistance
LEAK PROOF Gas-tight connection
SAFE No dangerous shivers in case of damage/vandalism
FAST Significantly shorter production times
VARIABLE Mechanical properties are adjustable in a wide range
EASY On-site repair of damaged sheds is possible
GREEN Less CO2 consumed during production & life time

Primary advantages of ReCoTec® insulators:           

Elaborated Shedprofil Undercut, shed spacing varies to avoid ‘bridging’
Modern Materials LSR instead of HTV
Wide Temperature Range Temperature cycle test -60°C to +110°C performed
Temperature Properties Same Tg of both glue and tube
Pollution Performance 3000h multiple stress test performed
Short Lead Times ≤ 20 working days
Superior Engineering FEM simulations, in-house tube production
Inner tube diameter Outer tube diameter Outer shed diameter Normal shed profile Alternating shed profile
