Boxed-in Insulators on High-potential


The United Electric, Gas and Power Company of Santa Monica, Cal., has hit upon a novel device for protecting its long-distance circuits. The device is simply a wooden box, 12 inches square and four inches deep. The box is placed over the insulator. An extensive series of tests has shown, it is said, that the box prevents or greatly diminishes the loss in a fog. The boxes will be installed all along the transmission lines.
