Testing Process

The CCAS process involves testing approximately 10% of the spans in the circuit being evaluated. It is not necessary to test each phase in every span to get a useful sample size. The test results yield a circuit evaluation for the average condition of the line. Individual locations that represent more severe corrosion than the circuit average are also reported. The final result is a RSL projection for the circuit being tested.

  • Determines Corrosion of the conductor
  • Indicates Ductility and Strength loss
  • Rapid and precise appraisal
  • Tug pulls Trolley and sensor coil along line
  • Information processed for off-site evaluation
