These are extremely safe. 4 5 RIP bushing technology RIP bushings consist of a conductor. covering the nominal voltage range from 4 kV to 170 kV. The CT spaces of 0 and 300 mm are available as a standard. Our material corresponds to the present requirements for a high-grade insulating system. in respect to the freedom of partial discharge and temperature. Through the complex production process. 1 2 Head with connection Dry filling with Micagel Porcelain Flange with test tap RIP condenser core with aluminium layers 3 The RIP technology in detail The RIP technology is the core piece of a Micafil bushing: a resin impregnated paper insulation with capacitor inserts for electrical field control. Micafil bushings are pressure-free and explosion-proof. main flange and insulator. as well as power frequency voltage withstand test. 1.Technology Lead thanks to RIP Bushings Micafil is the worldwide leader in RIP technology (Resin Impregnated Paper) for oil-free. The test tap is also tested. 5.and gas-tight. 4. RIP body.

The RIP body is oil. Such bushing is completely dry. exact position and number of foils are computer-calculated. In order to optimise the electrical field in axial and radial direction. This bolt acts as the bushing’s top terminal.000 A removable copper conductor could be used. low tan δ  and partial discharge-free bushings up to double service voltage are only some of the main advantages PORIP bushings have. the size. compressible dry filler MICAGEL. For a testing purpose the cap must be unscrewed and female-female pin adapter used. The brown colour is standard. allowing installation in any position. All bushings are equipped with electrical shield on the bottom side. The cable bolt is fixed to the bushing’s head and can be connected to the transformer leads by brazing or soldering. The paper body is vacuum dried. Accessories Test tap Each bushing is equipped with a standard test tap. The aluminium shield is epoxy resin-insulated. 5 and 6.

There is no need for oil level gauge. solid. Each test tap is tested with 3 kV. the porcelain insulator and the aluminium head are assembled. All bushings have on the flange two M1 holes for handling and / or earthing. The test tap is connected to the outmost aluminium layer and is automatically earthed. head and outdoor insulator After fixing the aluminium flange onto the body.

This process was developed by Micafil 45 years ago and constantly improved. The result is a high-quality insulation system. For current higher than 1.000 A draw lead application is selected. 3 .

If there is any problem on the transformer or in the network. as well as on quality and condition of the transformer oil. the condition of the bushing can be checked by measuring tan δ and capacitance of the bushing’s active part. The recommended minimum distances (A) to be used under standard conditions are shown in Fig. using the test tap. 8 Fig./ maintenance-free. Checking and Maintenance One of the main advantages of dry PORIP bushings is that they are fully check.Recommendation for Bushings Installation Distance from bushing’s lower part to the earthed parts depends on the shape of surrounding parts. 8.5RTKF 100RTKF 123RTKF 145RTKF 170Up (kV) 50 – 105 140 160 185 185 230 275 310 325 365 A (mm) 80 90 100 115 115 145 170 200 210 230 6 .
