Dry-type RIP Insulation
Moser Glaser researched a way to increase the dielectric characteristics of its High Voltage equipment. As a result, Moser Glaser invented the Epoxy Resin Impregnated Paper (RIP) technology in 1958. With more than 50 years of experience in the development of RIP technology, Moser Glaser offers transformer bushings DURESCA® DTOIA from 25 to 345kV.
The insulation lays directly on the conductor or tube and consists of crepe paper dried under vacuum and impregnated with epoxy resin. Conductive grading layers are embedded during the winding of the insulation for the best ﬁeld control. This guarantees the highest operational and human safety.
A strong moisture barrier prevents any contamination or moisture ingress. Moser Glaser design does not use any oil; DTOIA is completely dry and free of partial discharge. DTOIA bushings can be applied at any position from 0° to 90° from vertical and allow for safe horizontal transport and storage.
Moser Glaser pioneered the standardization of Silicone Rubber Insulators on Bushings, bringing a high level of safety and reliability to the Electric Utility industry and increasing the performance of the bushing in heavily polluted environments.
Weight reduced as well as ﬂexible sheds, increase its tolerance to vandalism, or earthquakes. No risk of porcelain break during shipping or handling; no collateral damage.
Moser Glaser standardized on a minimum 54mm/kV of nominal line-to-ground voltage creepage distance.
Moser Glaser can interchange a wide variety of bushings designs. This allows the customer to replace existing OIP bushings with RIP technology. The supply chain is simpliﬁed as the silicone molding operation is done in-house, Moser Glaser can offer short lead times for its standard range of products.
DTOIA bushings are also available with RIS (Resin Impregnated Synthetic) insulation
The main performance and life expectancy restraint in RIP condenser bushings were found to be the paper itself. Paper is an organic material with inconsistent material parameters, namely the moisture content. Too much moisture will cause high loss values, degrade the insulation system of the bushing, and possibly cause a premature failure. In order to compensate for this, modern RIP bushings utilize drying systems during the manufacturing process.
For shipment and storage, plastic bags with a dessicate bag or oil containers are used to protect the bushing. Finding an alternative material to paper was not an easy task, though, due to the fact that paper provides good insulation characteristics and has been used in bushing and transformer manufacturing processes for many years with continual optimization.
Several experimentations were needed to ﬁnd optimal successor.
Moser Glaser undertook this task by performing tests on many materials in order to ﬁnd a successor to the paper. After research, Moser Glaser found a special polyester structural material which is an excellent alternative to paper. Moser Glaser performed a sequence of tests to qualify this solution:
Routine and type tests according to IEC 60137-ed7.0 and IEEE C57.19.00-2004 Speciﬁcations for the type tests were beyond the requirements of the standard.
In addition, several special tests have been developed to challenge this solution.
The new Resin Impregnated Synthetic RIS is now developed and part of Moser Glaser products portfolio.
An all-inclusive solution!
The result of this development is an ideal association of existing epoxy resin technology and its appreciated characteristics...
enhanced with new features:
For outdoor application, Moser Glaser standardized a direct-molded silicone insulator to provide an, even more, safer solution.
Moser Glaser could maintain its strength by providing a high level of customization.
Therefore RIS technology can be applied to the standard range and also can interchange all existing designs. There is no limitation as for the diameter and length.
What you get today with RIP technology can be offered with RIS.
With this important new milestone, Moser Glaser is now ready to offer the bushing of the future

Solutions for Draw-lead connectors
Connection through brazing
The Draw-lead connector is equipped with a pilot hole. It has to be drilled according to the lead diameter. The maximum cable section is 400mm² up to 161kV and 500mm² for 230kV. The cable is connected to the Draw-lead connector via brazing and draw through the bushing center tube. The maximum current rating is 800A.
Part number will be the drawing number with the extension .B01 Ex.: 600.17.0004.B01 for a DTOIA 25kV – 800A
Connection through brazing on a spade
An alternative brazed solution is offered for Draw-lead bushings.
The apparatus cable is directly brazed on the Draw-lead connector spade. The maximum current rating is 400A up to 69kV and 800A for 115kV and above.
Part number will be the drawing number with the extension .B31 Ex.: 600.17.0007.B31 for a DTOIA 34.5kV – 400A
Connection through crimping
The connector is adapted to Draw-lead size. The maximum current rating is 400A.
Part number will be the drawing number with the extension .B21 to .B25 Ex.: 600.17.0013.B25 for a DTOIA 69kV – 400A
Replacing Draw-lead bushings
The most critical parameter to consider is the height above the ﬂange of the existing bushing versus the replacement bushing. Below two solutions are then offered:
1. When the air side of the bushing is longer than the existing bushing
Moser Glaser offers lengthened Draw-lead connector (for brazing or crimping) to compensate for any difference in the length of the cable. When the customer wants to keep the existing conﬁguration, Moser Glaser offers an adapter that threads onto the existing Draw-lead stud.
It is a quick and easy solution to correct the difference in height and avoid any additional brazing or crimping operation on-site. Ask Moser Glaser for more details about this solution.
2. When the air side of the bushing is shorter than the existing bushing
This is a more complicated procedure requiring that the original Draw-lead connector has to be cut off at a speciﬁc point on the Draw-lead cable and either crimping or brazing on a new one.
Thanks to its ﬂexible manufacturing equipment, Moser Glaser can offer Draw-lead bushings with an extended strike distance and therefore compensate the airside length difference.
Then this bushing can be equipped with a Draw-lead adapter as presented in solution 1 or a standard connector.

They are usually cast from aluminum but are also made on customer request from other materials (copper, brass). More details on request.
On request, a shock indicator label can be ﬁxed on the crate to check if it has experienced a mechanical shock.
Long term storage RIP bushings
A protective tank is used to protect parts of RIP bushing which are used under service in transformer oil against damages or humidity. They are used for long-term storage as well as for protection during long transports. The protection tank is delivered mounted on the bushing and ﬁlled with dry insulating oil. After the sealing, an air cushion remains in the protection tank which is necessary for compensation purposes due to temperature-sensitive volume variations.
Offshore application (C5-M)
Moser Glaser has made investigations and performed tests according to ISO 12944 and ISO 20340 to ﬁnd the most efﬁcient combination of products for heavily corrosive environments. If you ordered a bushing for offshore application, the ﬂange and the head of the bushing will be anodized, and the top terminal will be tin-plated.
