The result obtained shall be converted into percentage. The voltage across any disc shall not exceed 13% for suspension insulator string and 14% for tension insulator string. Mechanical strength test The complete insulator string along with its hardware fitting excluding arcing horn, and suspension assembly/dead end assembly shall be subjected to a load equal to 50% of the specified minimum ultimate tensile strength (UTS) which shall be increased at a steady rate to 67% of the minimum UTS specified. The load shall be held for five minutes and then removed. After removal of the load, the string components shall not show any visual deformation and it shall be possible to disassemble them by hand. Hand tools may be used to remove cotter pins and loosen the nuts initially. The string shall then be reassembled and loaded to 50% of UTS and the load shall be further increased at a steady rate till the specified minimum UTS and held for one minute. No fracture should occur during this period. The applied load shall then be increased until the failing load is reached and the value recorded. Vibration test The suspension string shall be tested in suspension mode, and tension string in tension mode itself in laboratory span of minimum 30 metres. In the case of suspension string a load equal to 600 Kg shall be applied along the axis of the suspension string by means of turn buckle. The insulator string along with hardware fittings and conductor tensioned at 3600 Kgf for 90KN insulator and 56900kgs for 160 kN insulator shall be secured with clamps. The system shall be suitable to maintain constant tension on the conductor throughout the duration of the test. Vibration dampers shall not be used on the test span. The conductor shall be vertically vibrated at one of the resonance frequencies of the insulators string (more than 10 Hz) by means of vibration inducing equipment. The peak to peak, displacement in mm of vibration at the antinode point nearest to the string shall be measured and the same shall not be less than 1000/f1.8 where is the frequency of vibration in cycles/sec. The insulator string shall be vibrated for not less than 10 million cycles without any failure. After the test the disc insulators shall be examined for looseness of pins and cap or any crack in the cement. The hardware shall be examined for looseness, fatigue failure and mechanical strength test. There shall be no deterioration of properties of hardware components and insulators after the vibration test. The insulators shall be subjected to the following tests as per relevant standards: Page-13
