ABB high voltage metal-oxide surge arresters are renowned for their high performance in both indoor and outdoor installations. ABB surge arresters are produced with a polymer housing made of silicone. The silicone housing is directly moulded onto the active part of the surge arrester, thus avoiding any air volume or air gap inside the housing. The surge arresters are extremely resistant against overload, thus preventing explosions and subsequential damage to other high voltage electrical equipment in the area. In comparison to other polymeric materials, silicone has the highest resistance against pollution. The silicone used by ABB has proven itself under severe environmental conditions like water, salt fog, sand, industrial pollution as well as UV radiation.
