LARGE 60,000-VOLT INSULATOR
An interesting shipment of insulators for high-potential power-transmission work has just been made by the New Lexington (Ohio) High-voltage Porcelain Company. It consists of the first carload of an order of 5,000 60,000-volt insulators for the Seattle-Tacoma Power Company of Seattle, Wash., sold through the E. N. Fobes Supply Company of Seattle, northwestern sales agent for the New Lexington company.
The accompanying illustration shows the type of insulator used. It is 14 inches in diameter and 12 1/2 inches high and weighs 25 pounds net. This design is considered to be one of the best for 60,000-volt lines.
