Sichuan Yibin Global Group

Glass Insulators

Glass Insulators

Sichuan Yibin Global Group, SYGG, are one of the world’s leading manufacturers of toughened glass insulators, with a range of products that has been widely proven in operation in the U.K. up to 400kV.

Global Leader in Glass Insulator Products

with National Grid Type Registration

Sichuan Yibin Global Group was established in July 2004 to focus on the development, design and manufacture of toughened glass insulators. With around 50 million insulators in service worldwide – over 40 million in high voltage operation – they have established the product quality, performance and reliability of a global leader.

SYGG have around 400,000 insulators in operation in the U.K.

SICHUAN YIBIN GLOBAL GROUP

SYGG’s annual production capacity is over 9 million glass insulators.

Their advanced manufacturing centre uses production, inspection and testing equipment from around the world, which, combined with a skilled workforce and the latest quality management systems, delivers products that meet global standards.

Advantages of Glass Insulators

 

Glass Insulators

Higher resistance to breaking than ceramics, with a mechanical compressive strength 1.5 times higher.

Glass Insulators

Much higher electrical
resistance than
ceramic insulators
(500 – 1000 kV/cm).

Glass Insulators

Thermal expansion
and contraction of
glass insulators is very
low.

Glass Insulators

Their transparency
means that defects
are efficiently detected,
in manufacture and
during operation.

Glass Insulators

Some sunlight
passes through glass
insulators, decreasing
their degradation.
