Snow and Ice Testing

In the climate test hall snow and ice tests of insulators, apparatus, and conductors can be performed. Different types of snow and ice with client defined properties can be created.

It is also possible to combine pollution and ice tests. Insulators are first contaminated and then accreted by ice produced from water with certain conductivity. Tests can be performed on full scale AC and DC equipment. STRI also performs standard mechanical ice tests for disconnectors.
