Cable Jointing Tools For Stripping Cable Insulation

Alroc cable tools are used by MV-HV jointers to remove cable insulation and provide excellent cable preparation prior to the installation of joints, terminations or connectors using cold shrink, heat shrink or push-on type technology.

Alroc tools strip or remove outer cable sheathsemi-con screen and cable insulation from medium-high voltage cables: this includes polymeric insulated cables such as XLPE, EPR, PVC, PE. The cable insulation contains the voltage within the LV MV HV cable systems and are usually either extruded solid dielectric or laminar (oil paper or varnish cambric).

The video shows the Alroc BRMRD1 insulation removal stripping tool in use by cable jointers removing the XLPE insulation to prepare the cable ready for the installation of cable joints, terminations or connectors – typically used at medium/high voltages 11kV and 33kV and insulation diameter applications 14 – 40mm.


Remove Cable Insulation

The cable insulation provides electrical insulation to the conductor at voltage from the outer screens at ground potential – the insulation will be of sufficient thickness to withstand the electric field under the rated and transient operating conditions.

XLPE insulation is a natural colour, EPR is white (lead-free) or red/pink (contains red lead oxide as a stabiliser).

Cable Insulation

Grinding, Polishing & Cleaning

To avoid air gaps where discharges can occur, the cable insulation surface must be smooth – jointers can use cut strips of grinding (abrasive) paper. This polishing process must be carried out carefully to avoid damage to the cable insulation screen. Jointers should thoroughly clean the cable insulation using an approved cable cleaner and using a motion of travel towards the insulation scrren. Never use the same side of a cleaning tissue twice and the insulation must be clean of conductive particles and dirt.
