STANDARDISATION OF DIMENSIONS OF TOP AND NECK OF 11 KV PIN INSULATOR Please note that now-a-days Board is using preformed ties for binding conductor with the Pin Insulator instead of conventional method of binding by aluminium binding wire and tape. The design of the preformed ties depends upon the dimensions of top and neck of 11 KV Pin Insulator. For proper gripping of the conductor with the help of preformed fittings it has become necessary to standardise the dimensions of the insulator top and neck. Accordingly, a drawing 051-32/CSEB/1 dt.1.9.2001, which indicates the standardised dimensions of top and neck of 11 KV Pin Insulator is enclosed with Tender Specification. This drawing has been approved by REC, New Delhi, therefore, the tenderers are advised to offer material based on this drawing.

After conducting short circuit test, healthiness of active parts shall be checked by un-tanking the transformer. The findings and conclusion of these tests shall be binding on the supplier. In case the transformer does not pass in either of the tests and if the active part details are not found to be in line with the design tested and approved, the following punitive measures shall be taken: (i) 5% payment of the bill for the supplies already made will be recovered by the Board. (ii) For transformers already supplied, the guarantee period shall stand twice the normal guarantee period. The period of performance Security Deposit shall be suitably extended to cover the extended guarantee period. (iii) Further, supply of balance quantity of transformers will not be accepted by the Board, till another transformer from the manufactured batch is satisfactorily tested (OR transformers are modified according to the tested design) for both tests at your cost and consequent to this, if there is any delay in executing the order, the same shall be to your account. Board reserves the right to take action as per terms and conditions of the order.

1.23

Technical Specifications

The concrete shall be covered with a layer of sacking, canvas, Hessian or similarabsorbent material and kept constantly wet up to the time when the strength of concrete is at least equal to the minimum strength of concrete at transfer of pre stress. Thereafter, the pole may be removed from the mould and watered at intervals to prevent surface cracking of the unit; the interval should depend on the atmospheric humidity and temperature. 1.24 DE-TENSIONING The pre stressing wires shall be de-tensioned only after the concrete has attained the specified strength at transfer (i.e. 210 kg/cm2). The cubes cast for the purpose of determining the strength at transfer should be cured, as far as possible, under conditions similar to those under which the poles are cured. The transfer stage shall be determined based on the daily tests carried out on concrete cubes till the specified strength indicated above is reached. Thereafter the test on concrete shall be carried out as detailed in IS: 1343-1960 (code of practice for pre stressed concrete). The manufacturer shall supply when required by the purchaser or his representative, result of compressive test conducted in accordance with IS: 456-1964 (code of practice for plain and reinforced concrete) on concrete cubes made from the concrete used for the poles. It the purchaser so desires, the manufacturer shall supply cubes for test purposes and such cubes shall be tested in accordance with IS: 456- 1964 (code of practice for plain and reinforced concrete). (i) The de-tensioning shall be done by slowly releasing the wires, without imparting shock or sudden load to the poles. The rate of de-tensioning may be controlled by any suitable means either mechanical (screw type) or hydraulic. The poles shall not be de-tensioned or released by cutting the pre stressing wires using flames or bar croppers while the wires are still under tension. Separate eye-hooks or holes shall be provided for handling and transport, one each at a distance of 0.15 times the overall length, from either end of the pole. Eye-hooks, if provided, should be properly anchored and should be on the face that has the shorter dimension of the cross-section.

Each tier in the stack should be supported of timber sleepers located at 0.15 times the overall length. measured from the end. The timber supports in the stack should be aligned in a vertical line. Poles should be transported with their broad faces placed vertically and in such a manner that shocks are avoided. Supports should be so arranged that they are located approx. at a distance equal to 0.15 times the overall length from the ends. The erections of the pole should be carried out in such a way that the erection loads are applied so as to cause moment with respect to the major axis. i.e. the rope used for hoisting the pole should be parallel to the broader face of the pole.

The pole may be tested in either horizontal or vertical position. If tested in horizontal position, provisions shall be made to compensate for the overhanging weight of the pole, for this purpose the over-hanging portion of the pole may be supported on a movable trolley or similar device. The pole shall be rigidly supported at the butt end for a distance equal to the agreed depth of planting i.e. 1.5 M. Load shall be applied at a point 600 mm from the top of the pole and shall be steadily and gradually increased to design value of the transverse load at first crack. The deflection at this load shall be measured. A pie stressed concrete pole shall be deemed not to have passed the test if visible cracks appear at a stage prior to the application of the design transverse load for the first crack. The load shall then be reduced to zero and increased gradually to a load equal crack load plus 10% of the minimum ultimate transverse load, and held up for 2 minutes. This procedure shall be repeated until the load reaches the value of 80% of the minimum ultimate transverse load and thereafter increased by 5 % of the minimum ultimate transverse load until failure occurs. Each time the load is applied, it shall be held for 2 minutes The load applied to pre stressed concrete pole at the point of failure shall be measured to the nearest five Kg.
