3EQ Silicone Surge Arresters
For replacing your post insulators
Answers for energy.
The cost-saving solution for your substation
You require fewer post insulators for your installation, thereby saving you both
money and space.

It‘s no problem to install our 3EQ surge
arrester over the transformer! There is no
danger to equipment, even in the direct
vicinity.

Why is this only possible with the 3EQ surge arrester?
The tube design ensures that these arresters are virtually
in­destructible. The 3EQ surge arrester is 100 % breakproof ­after a pressure relief operation. No parts will be
thrown out and the emerging arc will burn between the
directional p
­ ressure relief device. No other design, such as
wrapped arresters, direct molded arresters with polymeric
housing or porcelain housed arresters, can provide this.

Do you require high bending moments for the support?
The 3EQ surge arrester in tube design can support!
6,000 Nm/MDCL 37,000 inch-lbf
(for voltages of 30 kV to 362 kV)
38,000 Nm/MDCL 235,000 inch-lbf
(for voltages of 110 kV to 800 kV)
72,000 Nm/MDCL 445,000 inch-lbf
(for voltages of 220 kV to 800 kV)
225,000 Nm/MDCL 1,390,000 inch-lbf
(for voltages of 550 kV to 1200 kV)
