1/3 Type G-GC Portable Power and Mining Cable
1/3 type G-GC portable power and mining cable comes with 3 conductors and its gauge size is 1 AWG. All the 3 conductors are colored differently to easily get identified during installation and termination. They come in red green and yellow colors. The power cable is ideal for any kind of environment as it can operate at a minimum of -300 C and at a high of 900 C. It can be availed to you from a minimum of 10 FT to a maximum of 1000 FT. The cable also comes with insulation and a jacket.
The insulation is made of EPDM while the jacket is made of CPE. These materials play an important role in ensuring the cable performs as per the expectations of the end- user. The cable weighs 1761 Lbs per 1000 FT allowing you to easily carry it around when installing.
Key features of the 1/3 Type G-GC portable power cable
The 1/3 Type G-GC portable power and mining cable has 3 conductors that are made of fully annealed stranded bare copper. The conductor is stranded to make it more flexible, break resistant and stronger even when operating in harsh conditions.
The 3 conductors are colored green, yellow and red. The green conductor is used for grounding, red for secondary live wire and yellow for ground check and transmitting power as well. The conductor size is 1 AWG and the stranding is 259/25. The conductors can properly fit into a circuit duct because as it has an outside diameter of 1.500 inches. As the conductor measures 8 AWG to 500 MCM, it can be used for a wide range of services and thus saving you from repeat purchases. The conductor stranding has been put in place according to the ASTM B 174.
The 1/3 Type G-GC portable power and mining cable has a premium grade oil resistant Ethylene Propylene (EPDM). EPDM is a synthetic rubber material with the ability to withstand up to 2150 C of heat. The insulation protects the conductor from damage. EPDM insulation is resistant to ozone, heat, abrasion and weather. It has great durability and excellent resistance to UV. It also protects the end user from being electrocuted.
The jacket of the 1/3 Type G-GC portable power and mining cable has been made of Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE). The jacket protects both the conductor and the insulation from physical and chemical damage. CPE is a kind of thermoplastic with high impact resistance making it ideal for use in the mining and industrial use. CPE is very flexible with great anti-aging properties making it durable.
Thermoplastic also has high endurance to chemicals giving the cable long life expectancy even when exposed to chemicals. This portable cable can never self-ignite itself thanks to the CPE jacket which possesses good anti-combustion property. Much as the jacket is flexible, this does not mean that it is not tough. The jacket is tough enough not to allow any form of destruction to tear the surface. Together with the EPDM insulation, they ensure no form of impact affects the conductor.
Industrial approvals and certifications
The 1 AWG 3 Conductor Type G-GC portable power and mining cable has been tested and proven safe for use by the following international bodies;
This cable can be used in both wet and dry locations as mentioned earlier. It can operate in areas below -300 C or in areas above 900 C. It can be used for external and internal operation as it meets and exceeds all MSHA and UL flame specifications. The 1/3 Type G-GC portable power and mining cable is generally used in industrial and mining industries. It used in oil drilling platforms, marinas and shipyards. It is also used for portable power generation equipment, mining and mineral processing facilities.
