There is a serious problem in the electric power utility industry that is getting worse every day. Almost half of the installed infrastructure has reached the end of its original design life. Because the assessment and replacement of these components is expensive and difficult, and because it is very challenging for new installations to keep up with new demand, there are many that fail in-service causing power outages and other consequences. But if mitigation steps are not taken, or repairs are not performed, the potential liability when components fail is huge. A ClampStar® applied to a deteriorating fitting is not only the most economical means of preventing a premature and unexpected failure but also prevents potential injury to the public and avoids the extraordinary costs associated with the liability issues.
