Cold Shrink Terminations & Joints

With faster, easier installation, and the long-term reliability provided by superior environmental sealing, 3M Cold Shrink Medium Voltage Cable Accessories achieves improved efficiency and performance, as well as significant cost savings.

Using 3M Cold Shrink type QT111 cable terminations the video demonstrates the flexibility and simplicity for terminating MV HV cables – the shorter installation length of the termination enables compact cable terminations into 11kV/33kV, 15kV and 66kV electrical equipment. No requirement for heating or tools ensures quicker and easier installation.

 Features & Benefits

  • Tight Cable Sealing – HV joint or termination retains resiliency and pressure after prolonged aging and outdoor pollution exposure
  • Flexible Cold Shrink – accommodates all power cable manufacturers bend radius tolerances and recommendations
  • Reliability – high dry and wet insulation resistance for direct burial cable joint or outdoor termination
  • Outdoor Cable Terminations – excellent resistance to ozone and ultra-violet radiation
  • Versatile – Cold Shrink joints or terminations install quickly and accommodates a wide range of cable sizes
  • Dependable – proven long-term reliability and safe operation at overload temperature on MV HV power system networks
  • Time Efficient – reduced installation time for the Jointer compared to heat shrink, electrical taping or resins

The following video demonstrates the installation process for Cold Shrink terminations to MV HV screened cables.

Power Cable Terminations for MV HV Electrical Systems Utilising 3M Cold Shrink | QT-III Cold Shrink silicone rubber is specifically formulated as a high track-resistant material with hydrophobicity (water repelling action) to virtually ensure a long life cable termination expectancy for indoor/outdoor medium/high (MV HV) cables.



Euromold Connectors | A Nexans Brand

Thorne & Derrick are Approved Distributors & Stockists for Nexans Euromold Connectors – fully screened compact separable cable connectors terminate medium/high voltage cables onto motor, transformer or switchgear bushings to provide a “touch safe” cable termination with disconnection option for polymeric cables (XLPE EPR).

The Euromold range of Separable Connectors are manufactured from high quality EPDM rubber and include elbow, straight and tee connectors supplemented by a complete range of 11kV-33kV bushings. Separable connectors are typically used to terminate and connect cables into gas insulated switchgear (GIS) power systems and circuits distributing MV-HV electricity at 6.6kV, 11kV, 33kV and 66kV medium/high voltages.

Jointing 11kV 33kV Cables

Cable terminations and joints for use on MV HV electrical power distribution systems should only ever be installed by trained and competent Jointers in accordance with the manufacturers installation instructions – Thorne & Derrick can provide expert technical support to ensure the supply of the correct cable accessory for medium/high voltage cables supported by manufactured provided Cable Jointer Training.

Before commencement of installing 11kV 33kV cable joints ensure sufficient jointing room is available around the working area of the intended joint position to allow safe and effective cable jointing operations – consider the additional work room to accommodate specialised tools such as cable cutting and crimping tools.

Identify the phases and check if cable cores are crossed – set the 11kV/33kV cables into a straight position and level correctly aligned without undue stress before installing heat shrink or cold shrink cable joints.

Termination Of Cable Conductors

Cable jointer preferences and installation conditions of cable joints and terminations determine whether compression or shearbolt technology is used to terminate cable conductors. For instance, 11kV and 33kV single and multi-core medium/high voltage power cables with stranded copper conductors (Class 1) according to BS6622 are commonly crimped or terminated using hydraulic crimping tools (Cembre HT131-C) or battery operated crimping tools (Cembre B1350-CE) – these Cembre tools accommodate cable lugs up to 400sqmm. To install MV HV cable lugs with cross sectional areas 500sqmm and up to 630sqmm we can recommend the Cembre ECW-H3D crimphead coupled with the hydraulic PO7000 foot pump or B70M-P24 portable 24v electro-hydraulic pump.

The Pfisterer Sicon range of mechanical shearbolt cable lugs, terminals and connectors are suitable for the connection and termination of MV HV cables up to 66kV with copper or aluminium conductors (stranded circular, solid, sectoral shaped) without requirement for crimping tools – installed using no specialist jointing tools. The stepless shearbolt cable lugs have no predetermined breaking points in the thread ensuring the optimum thread load is achieved without protusions or need for conductor filing by the MV HV jointer.
