Meister International – Supplier of Superior Porcelain Insulators
The porcelain insulators supplied by Meister International provide years of reliable and consistent performance in the most rugged environments. Porcelain insulators are the most widely applied insulator in electrical transmission & distribution systems. From salty seaside substations to highly corrosive petrochemical facilities along the equator, our porcelain insulators enable continued operation at the designed voltages. Meister International’s porcelain insulators have also been tested to pass extreme seismic conditions.
Manufacturers, packagers, and distributors of switchgear, power transformers, gensets and bus-ducts consistently choose porcelain insulators over epoxy, silicone, and cycloaliphatic designs due to their durability. If you have ever experienced downtime due to a field failure of an ‘epoxy insulator’, the outrageously high cost of downtime could have been avoided by using a porcelain insulator. Utility engineers and consultants continue to specify porcelain insulators for their key switchyard projects because of their superior reliability.
The design of our porcelain insulators complies with the mechanical and electrical requirements of IEEE, IEC, NEMA and ANSI Standards. Testing is also performed in accordance with the applicable industry standards. Custom porcelain insulators can also designed and manufactured for customer specific applications and requirements.
Maintenance of porcelain insulators is really not required as the glaze coating on the exterior of the insulator keeps dirt and pollutants from adhering to the porcelain insulator. The metal fittings used in the manufacture of our porcelain insulators are made from metals that will not deteriorate and are ideal for supporting copper and aluminum busbars.
Manufacturing porcelain insulators is time consuming and sometimes this causes long lead times. Meister International helps customers avoid long lead times by stocking industry standard porcelain insulators. Stocking agreements are offered so that your production process can run without interruption. We put our customers first and strive to consistently provide a reliable product supply.
