Maillefer's New Gas Circulation Blowe...

by wireworld on 11/30/2016 - 11:35 am
Tag: Product Release

Maillefer's new Gas Circulation Blower PMM 100 is essential for reliable cooling circulation in different phases of the process in making high quality medium, high and extra high voltage cables. The most critical and sensitive element in this circulation system is the blower and how it is sealed mechanically.

The principle idea of the Gas Circulation Blower PMM 100 is based on a permanent magnet motor which does not have a mechanical seal. A blower with a mechanical seal is known to be failure sensitive due to its complex and fragile construction.

The PMM 100 also enables signifi cantly longer maintenance intervals thanks to the closed structure and when compared to a conventiona ...

Extreme Conditions Require Excellent ...

Tag: Press Releases

Cables are often exposed to extreme conditions, especially in applications for the petroleum and natural gas industry, aviation and medicine, just to name a few examples. Today’s challenging requirements can often only be met by special insulation materials, for instance PEEK, PI and fluoropolymers (FEP, PFA, X-EFTE). Depending on the scope of application, a special material may be necessary, since every material offers unique properties. And by combining materials, these properties can even be improved. That is the way that material performance is adapted to customers’ specifications.

What is particularly important to cable manufacturers are the dielectric and mechanical streng ...

Tag: Projects

Deepwater Wind has announced plans for the Skipjack Wind Farm, a new offshore wind farm that will help Maryland meet its clean-energy goals at far lower prices than state law anticipates, saving Maryland ratepayers millions of dollars.

The Skipjack Wind Farm will not only be the state’s largest renewable energy project, it would also be the right size for Maryland’s first offshore wind farm. At 120 MW, the Skipjack Wind Farm could be built in a single construction season, and developed more cost-effectively, and with considerably less risk than a larger project.

At more than 17 nautical miles northeast of Ocean City’s coastline, the project would be located so far aw ...

Nexans Launches PVC-free MOTIONLINE® ...

Tags: Press Releases, Product Release

Nexans has launched the new MOTIONLINE® HALEX cable series, a range of halogen-free flexible automation cables for industrial applications.

In the past, operators who needed halogen-free (PVC-free) cables could only choose PUR cables, which offer outstanding mechanical performance but are significantly more expensive than PVC-sheathed cables. Nexans is now offering an alternative that not only is flexible, robust, drag-chain-capable and flame-retardant, but also entails low additional costs compared with PVC cables.

Nexans’ HALEX cables do not contain halogens and, like PUR cables, are flame-retardant. In contrast to PVC, they do not release any highly toxic or irritant gases in ...
