Condition Assessment of Aged Conductors and Ground Wires

Cost-effective Management of Aging Systems

Kinectrics conducts condition assessment testing of aged conductors, ground wires, hardware, tower steel, and insulators, etc. Our capabilities include both controlled laboratory testing and in-situ field testing.

Lab test results and the input of that data into suitable models can be used with other factors to help clients take a cost-effective tiered approach to component repair and replacement on a fully-substantiated prioritized basis.

Laboratory testing provides a degree of comprehensive, detailed information that cannot be obtained by any other analytical technique. Kinectrics lab tests provide information on different characteristics and properties of the whole conductor / ground wire or on individual strands.
