For heavy loads and high voltages
When heavy loads and high voltages are present in stationary applications, heavy duty steatite ceramic standoffs are required. They provide an effective means of supporting large electrical components, such as bussbars or capacitors. When hostile environments are present, convolutions or petticoats can be provided on the glazed surface of the insulator. Clear glaze is standard on all exposed ceramic surfaces, with a brown glaze available upon request.
The metal end caps used to provide attachment to your devices are available plated or unplated in brass, bronze, aluminum, stainless steel or galvanized iron. They are permanently cemented to the ceramic insulator. Threaded holes in any configuration can be produced.
Two style bases are used for the heavy duty standoffs. One is elliptical while the other is round. The round bases are used on the larger diameter standoffs in order to support heavy loads. Materials are the same as for the caps.
