Corrosion Prevention for Medium Voltage Lines
Enel is seeking a method to prevent the damage to medium voltage overhead distribution line components caused by a combination of marine air and pollution. The method must be inexpensive to implement and long-lasting.
Many components of medium voltage overhead distribution lines are impacted by the accumulation of, and corrosion caused by, a combination of sea salt, moisture, dust, and industrial smoke. This is particularly true in locations that receive little rain to wash the accumulation away, such as Lima, Peru. The infrequent mild drizzle in such places only leads to mud formation and impregnation of the components. A variety of components are affected, including polymer-porcelain insulators, copper or aluminum conductors, and steel staples, connectors, and cabinets. Enel is seeking a method to prevent this build up and corrosion that can be utilized on existing components and potentially on new components.
