3FL silicone long rod insulators –
performance meets durability
Good reasons to use 3FL
Core
The new Siemens silicone long rod in­
sulators type 3FL combine the highest levels of electrical insulation and mechanical
tensile strength with a compact, lightweight design. Thanks to their superior design and minimized weight, 3FL long rod
insulators are especially suited for overhead compact-line applications where low
tower design and short line spans are required. They are also more economical to
transport and install.
The core rod is a boron-free, corrosionresistant ECR2 glass-fiber-reinforced plastic
rod (FRP rod). Due to the extremely high
hydrolysis and acid resistance of the FRP
rod the risk of so-called brittle fracture is
completely eliminated for 3FL insulators.
Design
The 3FL insulator housing is a one-piece
HTV1 silicone rubber housing made by the
one-shot injection molding process. The
HTV silicone is directly molded onto the
core rod by overlapping the triple junction
point and part of the metal end fittings.
The design ensures a total enclosure of the
most sensitive part of a silicone insulator –
the junction zone (metal end fitting/FRP
rod/silicone housing), where usually the
highest electrical field strength is concentrated. This overlapping system eliminates
any need of traditional sealing systems
while preventing any moisture ingress
attacks.
2
End fittings
The end fittings, made of hot-dip galvanized forged steel or ductile cast iron,
are directly attached to the FRP core rod
by a circumferential crimping process. Each
crimping process is strongly monitored
with a special control system. A complete
range of end fittings according to the
latest IEC and ANSI standards is available
up to 210 kN of SML. The 3FL is 100% exchangeable and compatible with existing
insulators and line hardware of all types.
The special design of the end fitting in the
junction minimizes the electrical field
strength and partial discharge inside the
junction zone as well as on the silicone
housing surface, by utilizing an integrated
grading ring. This reliably prevents corrosion of the insulating material and eliminates the risk of subsequent failure of the
insulator.
3FL – HTV silicone rubber housing
for best pollution performances
The excellent pollution layer characteristics
of the HTV silicone rubber ensure maximum reliability of the 3FL insulator, even
under extreme service conditions. The
high hydrophobic housing prevents the
formation of conductive film on its surface. Even the most severe ambient conditions, such as salt fog in coastal regions or
dust-laden air in industrial areas, cannot
impair the intrinsic hydrophobicity of the
HTV silicone rubber. Surface currents and
discharges are ruled out. Neither water
nor dirt on the housing surface can cause
insulator flashovers – a significant factor
for insulator performance.
Quality from Siemens
According to long-established Siemens tradition and experience in high-voltage
equipment for more than a century, each
production step for the 3FL – beginning
with numerous incoming raw material inspections through the assembly of the individual components to routine tests of the
finished product – is rigorously monitored
and well controlled.

Standards and tests
The one-piece housing of the 3FL insulators, i.e. weathersheds and core rod sheath
(coating) is one-piece, and has only one internal interface throughout the whole insulator, namely the boundary interface between the housing and the FRP core rod.
This design eliminates all internal inter­
faces between weathersheds and the core
rod coating. These kinds of longitudinal
interfaces are normally very sensitive to
tangential electrical field stress, which in
worst case scenarios can easily lead to erosion damage of the polymer interfaces. In
particular leading to erosion of the bonding between sheds and rod sheath, and
thus damage to the insulator housing.
After numerous electrical calculations regarding E-field distribution along the insulator, and the connection zone on the
high-voltage side in particular, the design
of the 3FL insulator was optimized for
maximum reduction of electrical field
stress, reduced corona effect, and minimized RIV value. Two design keys ensure
improved life expectancy by reducing electrical field stress in the triple point and on
the silicone surface:
All 3FL long rod insulators are designed
and tested in compliance with the latest
IEC standards.
Furthermore, the junction point in the connection zone, where all three elements
(FRP rod, metal end fitting, and silicone
housing) meet each other, is absolutely
water- and air-tight sealed during manufacturing by using an overmolding housing system. It totally encloses this junction
point with the HTV silicone rubber of
the housing itself. The highest bonding
strength of the one-piece HTV silicone
housing to the FRP core rod combined with
the overmolding design system prevent
moisture ingress at the connection zone
of the insulator.
The spherical-shaped rim of the end fitting inside the housing homogenizes
the E-field distribution on the high-voltage side of the 3FL insulator with an integrated grading ring up to 170 kV.
The overmolded design system and the
silicone housing shape at the connection zone reduce the electrical field
strength inside the housing, at the inner
triple point in particular, as well as on
the silicone surface directly. This by displacing the higher electrical field
strength outside the housing (i.e. to the
surrounding air area), and by taking advantage of the higher silicone relative
permittivity.
In this way, 3FL insulators can be applied
on 170 kV systems without the need for
additional grading/corona rings.
Each Siemens 3FL insulator that leaves
the factory is routinely tested with a corresponding mechanical tensile test load of
at least 50 percent of the defined SML
load for at least ten seconds.

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, LIWV, creepage distance, end fittings designation, and production date code.
Packaging
3FL insulators are packaged in wooden crates with the following
dimensions: width is 1,120 mm, height is equal to or lower than
944 mm, the length is determined by the insulator length. The
maximum weight of one crate is 900 kg.
