Livewire Insulator Washing Pumps

Industrial Duty Pumps & Accessories for Live Wire Washing Applications



Dust, salt, smog, and other pollutants collect on high voltage insulators. Contamination build-up can interfere with electrical conductivity and thermal inefficiency that can lead to service disruptions. Regular cleaning, especially in dry climates, is a best practice.

Conventional cleaning often requires shutting down the lines and therefore interrupting service to homes, schools, businesses and other facilities. One solution to prevent shut-down is to use high-pressure pumps on boom trucks. Booms may be 75 to 100 feet long, which puts the water nozzles close to the insulators. A typical application may require 60 gpm/227 lpm at 700 psi/48 bar.

With field-proven dependability in applications around the globe, Cat Pumps provides the best high-pressure pumps for livewire insulator washing systems.
