Type W Multi-Conductor Portable Power and Mining Cable 2KV
This is a power cable which is vastly applied in the portable or highly mobile applications. The cable is multi-conductor which means it can sufficiently serve you in the wiring process. Having a cable with many conductors promotes an easy, fast and neat circuit wiring. Important features of Type W Multi-Conductor Portable Power and Mining Cable are here discussed…
- Conductor size
The cable conductor is an important feature of a cable that is why we want to begin by analysis its size. The conductors used for this cable have varied sizes ranging from highest of 8 AWG to the least of 500 MCM. I a pretty wide enough range of varieties to choose your cable sizes from, so that almost all your cable needs are met.
- Conductor type
Besides its size, we would also talk about its conductor type because it matters most in electrical conductivity. This cable is made up of copper conductor which is a very good conductor. To boast the efficiency and reliability of the conductor, some additional design processes have been carried out on it like annealing and stranding. These two techniques improve the cable quality big time. For instance, stranding enables the cable to be flexible and boast its conductivity while annealing is a process where the conductor is heated and cooled in a controlled environment to improve its longevity and softness. All these improvements carried on the conductors are in compliance with ASTM B 174.
Since this cable is to be used for heavy duty process, it is made with an extra superior insulation. The insulation is composed of a strong and durable high grade oil resistant Ethylene Propylene (EPDM). Due to the state of the application, that is the mines, a lot of oil is involved, that is why the cable is given a lot of protection against oil.
As if that sturdy insulation is not enough, a jacket is used to provide an overall cover for the cable conductors. This jacket is of a superior grade. It is designed to have sunlight, water and oil resistances. The material used is Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) which is also flame-retardant. So the jacket plays a vital and overall role in the entire security of not only the cable but also the system applications.
What matters most is where to use the cable. Type W Multi-Conductor Portable Power and Mining Cable is versatile, flexible and competent cable which is used in wide fields of applications. The cable is used in the facilities for mining and mineral processing just as the name suggests. These mines are hostile environments and mere cables cannot stand the hostility, it therefore calls for an enduring cable. This is the cable to use.
Besides in the mining facilities, the cable is also used in wiring: Oil drilling machines and equipment, marinas and ship yards. All these environments make a cable vulnerable to water and oil which can degenerate a cable. But Type W Multi-Conductor Mining Cable is designed to repulse all these agents of corrosion.
Type W Multi-Conductor cable is also used for compacted power generation processes. These processes demand for seriously tough and reliable cables in order for the generation to be accomplished. It is a process which is endowed with a lot of risks and a cable which can guarantee security of both the technicians and the systems is preferred.
It operates efficiently in temperature range of -400C and 900C in both dry and wet locations. Its outstanding features helps it operate with an excellent resistance to chemicals, oil, water, ozone and abrasion. The cable showcases a perfect performance with longevity of life even in the most extremely rigid settings.
