3M Cold Shrink Cable Terminations 11kV 33kV (Medium High Voltage MV HV Cables) – Premium
Thorne & Derrick distribute 3M Cold Shrink Cable Terminations for medium and high voltage 11kV 33kV electrical systems – we provide competitive prices for cold shrink cable terminations from extensive stocks to UK and international destinations.
Using cold shrink cable terminations reduces the risk of cable jointer error or inflicting damage to medium/high voltage cable insulation, including XLPE and EPR. The cable terminations are compact and easier to use in enclosed areas or confined space switchgear and cable boxes typically distributing 11kV/33kV electricity.
Cold shrink does not require any cooling down time before the cable can be energised unlike heat shrink cable terminations.
Additionally no special “hot-working” site permits are required where cables need to be connected or terminated into MV-HV electrical equipment located in hazardous areas with potentially explosive atmospheres according to ATEX Directive (Zone 1 & Zone 2).
➡ Cold Shrink Terminations – stress control, cable insulation and a water resistant seal is achieved without heat, torches or adhesives. Simply unwind the core to install for a fast, safe cable termination.
Cold shrink terminations are simple to install without special tools other than typical cable jointing tools to remove cable sheath and strip insulation/semicon screens from medium/high voltage power cables.
Many components of 3M cold shrink terminations have a one-part construction ensuring a rapid and effective installation.
3M’s premium cold shrink cable termination (3M QTIII – Quick Term III) range which are fully integrated to reduce installation steps and room for MV-HV cable jointer error.
The 3M QTIII termination comes with an integrated stress control tube, moisture blocking mastic, stress control mastic and an outer insulator with very good track resistance. Additionally the 3M QTIII termination does not require separately applied silicone grease-stress relief as the integrated mastic is sufficient.
Also available are 3M’s standard QTII cold shrink terminations which are partially integrated but requires moisture blocking mastic, silicone grease-stress relief and stress control mastic to be applied separately however heat or extra tooling is not required offering a viable cost-based alternative to heat shrink methods.
The Simple Application of A 3M Cold Shrink Cable Termination
|1. Prepare the cable as normal and clean with 3M Cable Wipes||2. Place the 3M Cold Shrink termination body over the cable end and position at the correct point on the cable||3. Begin to remove the inner core, allowing the termination to cold shrink down onto the cable||4. Once the inner core has been fully removed, the cable termination installation is complete|
Also: 3M Cold Shrink Cable Joints are available to splice, repair and joint MV-HV power cables up to 33kV.
