bushings to prevent the wear on new
construction and to eliminate the fail-
ure due to wind induced vibrations.
The stainless steel bushing can not
only be used for electric power transmission and distribution systems, but
can also be used anywhere a hole or
aperture needs to be repaired or reinforced. The new bushing was tested,
and not only solved the wear problem,
but also increased the strength of the
clevis attachment significantly.
Providing key benefits
The attachment bushing also provides
several key business benefits such as
safety, overall cost reduction, improved
operational efficiency, enhanced reli-
ability, and risk mitigation.
Georgia Power’s field workforce has
installed a number of these bushings on
230kv lines throughout its service territory to prevent arm replacements due to
failures from wind induced vibrations
on hundreds of worn cross arms. There
is minimal training required and the
savings on this one project alone were
calculated and shown to be significant
in labor, equipment and materials.
Due to the successful benefits of this
innovative solution, Georgia Power was
granted a patent from the United States
honor of its inventor, Georgia Power
employees have informally nicknamed
the product “The Buddy Bushing”. The
trademarked product is also being sold
and distributed by Diversified Prod-
ucts, which has worked with linemen to
bring their inventions to market for the
past 15 years. ⊗
