Damaged High Voltage Insulator

In this proof of concept, a damaged HV insulator used in power line transmission was scanned to see if internal damage can be assessed positively. The idea is to scan these objects preventatively before serious failure. Some images show the damage subsurface and the clarity of routine-type 3D X-ray inspection.
