Over two decades have elapsed since the commercial introduction of the first solid dielectric enhancement technology. During those years, silane injection technology has proven itself as an important tool to enhance the reliability of aging infrastructure. Incremental improvements during those twenty years have aided in the widespread commercial acceptance of the technology on at least four continents. This paper traces the evolution of dielectric enhancement technology, compares the merits of the available technologies, and provides a comprehensive bibliography. The merit comparisons are made in the broad categories of safety, shortterm and long-term post-injection reliability, and end-user value.

  • Historical progress of cable rejuvenation technology
  • Comprehensive bibliography of rejuvenation technology
  • Comparison of the merits of 3 commercially available technologies in the categories of safety, short-term and long-term post-injection reliability, and end-user value
