MIDSUN E/PRODUCTS

ANIMAL OUTAGE PROTECTIVE COVERS

+ 100 different silicone tubes, tapes, sheets,
preformed covers, barriers which provide a
proven, cost-effective and easy-to-install solution
to bird, animal and weather related outages.

ELIMINATING POWER OUTAGES AND PROTECTING OUR WILDLIFE

Over 25% of all power outages are caused by wildlife and vegetation interfering with electrical equipment. Most wildlife and vegetation induced outages can be prevented by installing Midsun insulating solutions. 

Birds, cats, rats, snakes and even squirrels are all capable of causing power outages. Animals climb around substations and birds perch on transformers seeking a safe, warm place to shelter and nest.

NETWORK RELIABILITY & PREVENTABLE OUTAGES

The interaction between wildlife and electrical equipment can have multiple outcomes: from electrocution, to faults, to wildfires. These occur when animals cause a phase to phase or phase-to-ground fault with their body, often having painful and deadly consequences for the creatures itself.

 

The best solution to ensure the protection of the equipment and power lines, as well as the animals, is to insulate the bare metalwork and create an environment for wildlife to roam substations and overhead lines without damaging themselves or the equipment.

MIDSUN E/PRODUCTS: ANYWHERE, LONG DURABILITY

Our proprietary material formulations offer durability in every environment – even in HV-polluted settings. Midsun E/Products consist of over 100 different systems of silicone tubes, tapes, sheets, preformed covers, and barriers that provide a proven, cost-effective and easy-to-install solution to bird-, animal- and weather related outages. Made from non-tracking material, Midsun E/Products are optimized to ensure tracking resistance, thermal endurance, and UV resistance for high-performance protection of equipment throughout their service lifetime.

This reliability is the result of 28+ years of dedication to research, development and materials science. Our Wildlife and Asset Protection experts are ready to support you with a broad range of reliable insulation solutions - customizable to your application. 

DIVERSE APPLICATIONS ACROSS THE ENERGY SECTOR
  • Substation Wildlife Induced Outage Reduction: Reliability improvement is possible by insulating vulnerable assets in substations.

  • Overhead Lines and Wildlife Protection: Outage and fire risks can be reduced and eliminated with effective insulation of high-risk elements of the overhead line. Midsun has insulated millions of miles and kilometers of bare conductors in distribution lines around the world

  • Protecting rail, data centers, OP&G, solar- and wind farms to minimize risk in relation to wildlife, storm and weather interference.

E/FUSING TAPE

Self-fusing silicone tape which forms a void-free electrical insulation protection system when applied to any connector, bus or cable.

E/Fusing Tape is offered in various widths to make application on any size equipment easy.

E/Fusing tape offers up to 15 kV phase-to-ground insulation with a 2/3 overlap and a 10% stretch. A second 2/3 overlap of tape will achieve a 30 kV phase-to-ground insulation rating.

APPLICATION 
  • Keep the tape clean of dust, dirt and moisture from hands or tape will no adhere to itself.

  • The first wrap will supply 15kV phase-to-ground insulation when applied using a 10% stretch with a 2/3 overlap. 30kV insulation can be achieved by a subsequent wrap.

  • Prevent any air pockets from developing by firmly pressing down on the tape

  • If fusing tape can possibly hold water – Allow a place for the water to egress out

  • Must overlap 100% when starting and terminating the application, so as to not have any “flagging”.

HIGH INSULATION E/FUSING TAPE

High Insulation E/Fusing Tape can be used on various odd shaped connectors, bus or cable to offer protection from animal contact induced outages.

Similar to our original Midsun E/Fusing tape, Midsun HIGH INSULATION E/Fusing tape is self fusing and allows void-free electrical insulation.

High Insulation E/Fusing tape offers up to 35 kV phase-to-ground insulation with a 2/3 overlap and a 10% stretch. A second 2/3 overlap of tape will achieve 50 kV phase-to-ground insulation.
