Porcelain Surge Arresters
Porcelain surge arresters are available for applications up
to 400kV systems.
Porcelain housing designs have been used by us for over
55 years.
From 1945 we produced porcelain surge arresters to the
gapped silicone carbide pattern and since 1980 we have
produced arresters to the gapless ZnO design.
The design consists of porcelain housing which conforms
to IEC-815 with an Aero Dynamic shed profile.
The varistors, spacers and locating rings are assembled
under compression with pressure relief diaphragms at
either end. The air void is evacuated and replaced with dry
air, then sealed.
Routine tests are carried out to show that the
manufacturing conforms to the current International
standard.

Polymeric DC Traction
Surge Arrester

Transmission Polymeric Surge Arresters

Spark Gap Type SPG4/12


The SPG4 Spark Gap is designed for use with traction
circuits to provide virtually instantaneous protection of
both equipment and personnel from power system
faults. The unit also provides protection against
lightning generated voltages which would otherwise
cause damage to signalling and cable circuits.
The SPG4 is constructed in stainless steel of rugged
design allowing the SPG to be installed in harsh
environments such as track side locations without
additional weather protection.
Suitable for use on circuits where standing/induced
voltages do not exceed 110v RMS.
Fast operation Typical 5 microseconds with 11kA fault
current.
Internal spark gap module unit easily replaced after fault
current operation.
Fail safe feature ensures safety to personnel and
equipment.
Service proven performance.
High internal impedance with low capacitance does not
interfere with track signalling circuits.

There are few places more exposed to direct lightning


strikes than an airfield. In such situations lightning
strikes within the vicinity of the airfield can result in
permanent damage to electrical equipment.

Surge Counters
Type SC12 & SC13

The Bowthorpe EMP range of Surge


Arrester monitoring instruments are
fully tested for use with any
manufacturers surge arrester. The
SC12 is a Surge Counter only, whilst
the SC13 provides the additional
measurement of total leakage
current. The analogue instrument
provides a means of monitoring the
current through the arrester and the
leakage current over the surface of
the arrester housing. Significant
changes after installation may
indicate a deterioration in the
arrester or a build up of surface
contamination.
These instruments, which require no
auxiliary supply, are designed for
installation in the earth connections
of a single surge arrester or
alternatively the SC12 may be used
with the common earth of a three
phase set. Fully weatherproofed and
sealed for life they are housed in a
one piece gravity die cast aluminium
case coated to enhance its already
high degree of resistance to surface
corrosion. The glass viewing window
is sealed in place, using a silicon
rubber adhesive, and a desiccator is
enclosed to ensure any residual
moisture trapped during sealing is
absorbed for the service life of the
counter. Mounting is effected by
means of an integrally cast lug at the

Airfield lighting circuits are particularly vulnerable as


the associated cable networks present an attractive low
impedance path for lightning surge currents to earth.
The result of a nearby lightning strike can be
permanent damage to the control circuits unless a
suitable lightning arrester is fitted to the lighting
control equipment.
The Lightning Arrester Type 2DCAFL4 is designed to
protect airfield lighting control equipment from the
effects of direct or indirect lightning strikes.
The arrester is provided with two metal oxide active
elements which are connected in parallel with the
supply cables. Installation requires only the cutting of
the supply cables at a convenient place close to the
control equipment and connection of the arrester to a
good electrical earth.
Arrester 2DCAFL4 can be fitted to new equipment but
is primarily designed to be quickly installed on existing
circuits.

clearance hole for the galvanised
steel M12 bolt supplied.
The SC12 and SC13 are service
proven and require no special
maintenance or servicing apart from
general cleaning of the glass
viewing window and the moulded
epoxy resin line terminal bushing.

Switching over voltages are absorbed
over the length of the line reducing the
severity of surge at the substation.
Transmission systems can be operated
even where sub-soil gives poor tower
footing resistance.
