Type G-GC INDUSTRIAL AND MINING CABLE
TYPE G-GC MINING CABLE
The cable that is most appropriate for industrial and light to medium duty mining uses, is the Type G cable and Type GG- C Power Cable. Also used for hardwearing service as power supply cable, and also power cable for mobile and portable electrical equipment at continuous certain temperature of at least 90°C that the conductor can withstand. The Type G cables can be used in all types of wet conditions. These cables are also useful and fitting for AC systems particularly the three phase ones, mainly because the 3 or 4 conductors are required and also grounding is mandatory.
The Type G, and the Type GG-C cables have brilliant elasticity, Read More
The cables of Type G- and Type GG-C are able to endure all dry situations to about 90°C, and also wet conditions to about 75°C. These cables come in rated to about 2000 volts. When conductors come in sizes 8 AWG through 500 MCM, it means it is completely annealed stranded bare copper.
For utmost elasticity conductors are assembled with rope lay stranding. The cables are cleverly built to have great resistance to abrasion, and impact. These cables also can cope with a great contact to heat, oil, moisture, acids, sunlight, alkalies, and many other chemicals. Again temperatures can fluctuate from around -40°C to 90°C. This wire is UL Listed, CSA and MSHA permitted and RoHS obedient. Also meets FT-5 Flame Test.
The Type GG-C cable is described to have ethylene-propylene insulation for use on circuts which would not go above 2000 volts. The cable with conductors of three insulated power each be of elastic stranded annealed tinned copper, and also EPR rubber insulation. The two conductors which are uninsulated green- covered groundin, each dwell of elastic stranded annealed tinned copper. A ground check of one insulated, abides in the flexibilty strand annealed copper, with yellow insulation. When the power conductors of three insulated are cabled together, the conductor ground check is placed in black and white valley with two valleys of each one grounding conductor. On the whole the Neoprene jacket has a two-layer resistant vulcanized in a metal mold. Embossed marking molded as an integral part of the jacket, including the inscription P-105-MSHA.
The Type GG-C conductors are twisted together for that with a left-hand lay assembly the necessities of Table 3-5 of ICEA. It should have fillers and a binder tape applied over the assembly when sizes are 250 and or larger.
When there is a reinforcement thermosetting with two- layer, it should be ejected over the assembly in accord with Par. 3.21 of ICEA. When the first layer of jacket of sizes 4/0 or even smaller, should deffinitly be extruded in the valleys. An extra-heavy duty jacket most like is Neoprene which meets the requirements of Table 3-3 of ICEA.
Type G-GC Power Cable FAQ
What insulation is Type G-GC Power Cable?
90º EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) is the insulation used for Type G-GC Power Cables. EPDM insulation is a synthetic rubber characterized by a variety of applications and has a close relation to ethylene propylene rubber. EPDM rubber insulation has a extreme resistance to heat, ozone, and weather, making it usable in higher atmospheres and colder climates. EPDM rubber is also found in roofing membranes, used because of its water resistance, some welding cables, the lower voltage SOOW cables, and also Type G cabling.
What’s an examples of Type G-GC Power Cable value advantage?
Type G-GC cables are able to withstand exposure to acids, alkalies, heat, moisture, oil, and a range of chemicals, which increases usability in the mining of cole, ore, gold, and silver. Useful as a portable power supply in light- to medium-duty mining applications. Due to its resistance to water, Type G-GC is ideal for submerged applications such as providing power to turbines and other marina equipment requiring 2000v or less. At this higher voltage, Type G-GC cable is available for more uses than cables that fall at the standard 600v. EPDM rubber insulation make this wire highly durable in terms of both normal wear and tear and also in rough weather conditions.
What’s an example of Type G-GC Power Cable Type Marking?
Type G-GC cable at 4/0 and smaller are marked with "Carol Super Vu-Trong Size (mm2) Type G-GC Portable Power Cable (UL) 2000 V Dry 90º Wet 75º Sun Res P-7K-123049-MSHA —- CSA Type G-GC (-40ºC) 2 KV FT5 Made in USA (Tru-Mark Sequential Footage). Cables larger than 4/0 will be marked with "Type G-GC Carol Super Vu-Tron 90ºC Dry and Water Resistant 75ºC 2000 V Sun Res (UL) P-7K-123049 MSHA LR27161 Made in USA (Tru-Mark Sequential Footage)". Type G cables will have "Carol Super Vu-Tron) Size (mm2) Type G Portable Power Cable (UL) 600/2000 V Dry 90ºC Wet 75ºC Sun Res P-7K123049 MHSA —- CSA Type G (-40ºC) 2 KV FT5 Made in USA (Tru-Mark Sequential Footage). This marking is from General Cable Carol Manufacturer and is unique to Type G-GC power cables.
What is a type of jacket do Type G-GC Power Cables have?
The Jacket is of a G-GC Cable is a CPE brand and extremely flexible and durable.
How can I customize my Type G-GC Power Cable?
Minimum order amount is required. Buyer can specify their order on request to include exact specifications for certain use. Customized cables or wires can be requested, but ability to fulfill request depends on the type or gauge of the cable being ordered. Factory availability will determine the ability to fulfill the request.
What are other common types Type G-GC Power Cables and what kinds of applications are they used for?
Type W, G, and DLO are common to the Type G-GC Power Cable. Type W cabling is made from a superior grade jacket and insulation that is flame-retardant and is used by companies like Exxon Mobile for oil drilling facilities. Type G is similar to Type G-GC in components, but thanks to its 6 conductor make-up, it is better suited for use on three-phase AC systems where up to 4 conductors and grounded are required. Type G-GC cable is coated with a Super Vu-Tron jacket, which is a tough rubber that can withstand the toughest industrial environments. DLO cables, or Diesel Locomotive, are outfitted with an ethylene propylene (EP) rubber and are best suited for diesel electric locomotives, motor leads, and petrochemical drilling rig applications.
What are some specifications and standards I should consider when choosing Type G-GC Power Cable?
Type G-GC power cable meets UL standards, specifically UL 1650, CSA approval, and is MSHA approved and RoHS compliant. Type G-GC power cable also passed the FT-5 flame test.
What gauges sizes and strandings are available for Type G-GC Power Cable?
Type G-GC Power Cable is available in a variety of sizes from 8 AWG to 500 MCM. These 3 conductor cables at a gauge of 8 AWG have 133 stands while a cable at a gauge of 500 MCM gauge contains 1,235 strands. The number of strands is directly proportional to the gauge.
What voltage rankings are available for Type G-GC Power Cable?
Type G-GC is available only in 2000 V. Projects that require less voltage can utilize the Type G-GC cable, though it is recommended that lower voltage cables are used for jobs with a low voltage requirement. Any application requiring over 2000 V is unsafe for the Type G-GC Power Cable
How many conductors does Type G-GC Power Cables come in?
Type G-GC cables come only as 6 conductor cables with a capacity for 2000 V. These include 3 carrier conductors and 3 ground conductors. Gauge size of these cables only effects the available strands and not the number of conductors. Read Less
