Connections are everywhere on the distribution system. They can be squeeze-on, compression, clamp-on, bolted and automatic sleeves. Any conductor connection mid-span or under tension that has a temperature rise is a critical problem. These connections need immediate attention. IR can and has identified problems with connections that resulted in design changes and standard practice changes. We have identified an issue with ˝ inch stainless steel bolted connections and an improper torque value that resulted in changes to a large utilities standard practice.
