The anchor plate shall be buried in concrete. but in no case shall any oil be used for that purpose.3 The pins for insulators shall be fixed in the holes provided in the cross-arms and the pole top brackets. Unbalanced loads on poles shall be avoided as far as possible.e. prior to fixing. The turn buckle shall be mounted at the pole end of the stay and guy wire so fixed that the turn buckle is half way in the working position. INSTALLATION OF LINES MATERIALS: 7. Care shall be taken that the conductors do not touch and rub against the ground or objects.4 Handling of Conductor. Struct shall be erected with concrete of ratio 1:3:6 foundation of size 900x900x900 mm using hard granite crusher broken chips of 12 mm size. one strap of the strain fittings is placed over the cross-arm before placing the bolt in the hole of cross-arms. 2 . followed in succession by the side conductors. if not existing in to line. painted with white and black strips so that. The insulator and its pin should be mechanically strong enough to withstand the resultant force due to combined effect of wind pressure and weight of the conductor in the span. rod with a bolt arrangement at one end and other end is given shape of 40mm dia circle to bind one end of the stay wire.5 Running out of the Conductors: The contractor shall be entirely responsible for any damage to the pole or conductors during stringing. it may be visible at night.The anchor plate shall be fixed to 200mm X 200mm MS plate of 6mm thickness. Pin insulators shall be used on all poles in straight line and disc insulators on angle and dead end poles. injure or scratch surface of the insulator. the Contractor shall take adequate safety precautions to protect personnel from the potentially dangerous condition. M. The nut of the straps shall be so tightened that the strap can move freely in horizontal direction. Stay shall be erected with concrete of ratio 1:3:6 foundation of size 900x900x750 mm using hard granite crusher broken chips of 12 mm size.1 Where change of insulators required. Damaged insulators and fittings. 7. When lines being erected run parallel to existing energized power lines. which could scratch or damage the strands.S. 7. 7.

In accordance with the recommendations of the manufacturer. The compression type fittings shall be of the self-centering type. jumpering at cut-points etc.2 While transporting conductors drums to site. and be properly greased with anti-corrosive compound. The service connection shall be given to consumer with help of piercing connector etc. Each part of the joint shall be cleaned by wire brush till it is free of rust or dirt. tensioning operation shall be commenced. scuff marks etc.5 All the joints or splices shall be made at least 15 meters away from the pole. 8. 8.3 The conductor shall be pulled through come-along clamps to stringing the conductor between the tension locations. After compressing the joint. 8. railways and small river spans. smooth and free from projections. STRINGING OF CONDUCTOR : 8. Repairing of the conductor surface shall be carried out only in case of minor damage. AB CONDUCTOR STRINGING : AB conductor on LT PSC pole shall be drawn with dead end clamp and suspension clamp with ‘I’ hooks. the ground & line clearances at road crossings along roads other crossings shall be as per the relevant I. After completing the jointing. 7. No joints or splices shall be made in spans crossing over main roads. The Contractor shall use only such equipment / methods during conductor stringing which ensures complete compliance in this regard. All the joints including mid span joints on the conductor shall be of the compression type.4 Conductor splices shall not crack or otherwise be susceptible to damage in the stringing operation. abrasions.7.
