Marking and nameplate of 3FL insulators


A nameplate is installed on each 3FL insulator when it successfully
passes the mechanical routine test. It is a weather- and UV-proof
stainless steel band with locking system, placed on the ground
end fitting of the insulator. The etched marking includes: catalog
number, SML, RTL, CIF, creepage distance, end fittings designa-
tion, and production date code.

Packaging
3FL insulators are packaged in wooden crates with the following
dimensions: width is 44 inches (1,120 mm), height is equal to
or lower than 37.16 inches (944 mm), the length is determined
by the insulator length. The maximum weight of one crate is
2,000 pounds (900 kg).
