In the field of live line maintenance there is a large variety of equipment used to wash insulators. Currently there are a few substation and special tower applications which possess fixed washing systems installed. However, for effective cleaning to occur there is a requirement for the insulator to be “hit” from varying angles at different lengths of time. The only achievable method of doing this with a fixed washing system requires a highly complex and sophisticated system, which ultimately is quite costly. The most effective solution to the highly complex and expensive fixed washing system is through the utilization of a mobile type washer which functions by either an operator-held or a single remote control nozzle.
