Maillefer Presents The New Co-extrusi...

by wireworld on 12/30/2016 - 08:34 am
Tag: Product Release

The tendency in high and extra high voltage applications is towards bigger cables, up to diameters of 200 mm. To reduce the outer diameter of the cables, a smooth Al-sheathing has been introduced as an alternative to the conventional corrugated metal sheath. To guarantee necessary adhesion between the smooth Al-sheath and the PE-sheath, an adhesive layer is applied between the two. Most HV and EHV cables have a semiconductive skin layer for testing purposes.

Maillefer has developed a new Three Layer Co-extrusion Crosshead ECH 200/240 3L to apply all three layers on the cable core simultaneously. Since sheathed products are heavy and big in diameter, user friendliness and space ...
