Testing Facilities

High Voltage Test

Goldstone has an excellent testing facility and its high voltage laboratory can perform Power Frequency Voltage flash over / withstand test for both dry and wet conditions as per the specifications.

Thermal Mechanical Test

The Thermal Mechanical test setup is a low / high temperature chamber operating between -40°C to +60°C with Microprocessor Controller and Computer interface. A Hydraulic system with power pack of 20 Ton capacity loading arrangements is provided to the chamber to conduct the design tests on Insulator as per IEC – 61109

Test for Curing Characteristics of polymer Compound

Sample from each batch of high performance polymer compound is tested in ODR to get full spectrum of curing characteristics at a particular temperature.

Mechanical Test

To ensure the product durability and mechanical strength, Goldstone has a specially designed Universal Testing Machine of 600 kN (60 Ton) capacity with tensile clearance of 1800 mm and computer interface. All the insulators can be tested as per IEC-61109 and tested for customer’s requirements of mechanical strength.
