Lead Wire and High Temperature Cable

Degree C Wire, High Voltage Wire and Industrial Cable are all multipurpose cables generally referred to as the Lead Wire and High temperature cables. Just as the name suggests, Lead wire and high temperature cable is a unique type of cable primarily made of lead and designed to serve power even at extremely high temperatures. This cable is a heavy duty cable and thus can be used for installation applications in areas requiring high power voltage supply.

Cables designed for power supply are made differently for different purposes, and also come in different sizes, standards and ratings. When out in the market for a high temperature serving cable am sure you will go for a top quality products. This is because whenever you include a poor quality cable in your electrical wiring projects, it will be costly as it will wear out easily compelling you to replace it. Since Lead wire and high temperature cable are meant to operate in high heat conditions, they are manufactured with adaptive insulation, shielding and jacketing material to enhance their performance. High temperature cables have the following characteristics;

1.Good thermal performance
Cables used in industrial areas are intended to ensure good thermal performance and can perform well in cases fires or high temperatures of up to 250 degrees Celsius. However, this is solely dependent on the coatings as well as the insulations applied on the cable. This explains why Lead wire and High temperature cable are a good choice when it comes to serving your steel and glass manufacturing industries as well as power generating firms. Some of this cable have an extrusion of silicone rubber and aramid K-fiber, which is responsible for withstanding heat and abrasion.

2.Resistance to chemical and mechanical damage
In an industrial environment there are damaging elements like chemicals, fluids, spills and even abrasive elements that can reduce a cable’s life. For safety of your high temperature cable, it is fitted with a reinforced mica tape, silicone rubber, PFA or an extrusion of Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) which affirms its performance in harsh environments experiencing high temperatures. This explains why such a cable is normally deployed in extreme temperatures of up to 1000 degrees Celsius e.g. furnaces, wire kilns and ovens.

3.Cut through resistance
This simply implies resisting cuts. It is an essential adaptive aspect of high temperature cable that make it resistant to cuttings which may arise as a result of industrial environment activities. Such cables are thoroughly jacketed with an aramid K-fiber material which keep the cable from much exposure.

It is clear that both the insulation and jacketing material can help in determining how and where the power cable is going to serve in a condition where mechanical abuse, chemical, abrasion, heat or flame could be a threat to the power cable. On this post am going to share with you about types of lead wire and high temperature cables offered by Nassau Electrical cable supply.

90 Degree C Wire
Interested in a flexible, easy to carry, high temperature and UL approved cable? Make 90 Degree C wire your preferred choice. This is because it is made of light weight soft copper wires coated by tin, which relieves the electricians from using excessive effort to bend, pull and carry along during installation.

There are three types of type 90 Degree C Wire offered at Nassau Electrical cable supply to the public all over the world. They include; HW050 Switchboard wire, HW051 Switchboard and HW052 Switchboard.

HW050 Wire is insulated with a flame retardant XLP that also increases thermal strength of the insulation material which is under load. It performs at its best when serving electrical power of 600 voltage capacity. For this reason, it is an ideal choice for use in connecting protective devices that require optimal performance. It is majorly tinned to help in preventing further oxidation as well as permitting easy solderability. A tinned copper wire normally has a high conductivity and often works well in high humid and moisturized areas. This cable is extensively used in utility substation switchboard, raceway systems. However, it is limited to environmental temperature as it has an operational rating of 75-90 degrees Celsius thus fits in both wet and dry locations.

150 Degree C Wire
This cable is designed purposely for use in internal connections of motor leads, electrical appliances and other devices. It comes with a flame retardant insulation jacketing that is tested and approved by the UL specification standards of Flame Tests (VW-1 and FT-1). It is a dual purpose serving wire which can perform in either high or low temperatures, this is affirmed by its superior insulation and jacketing protection of 150 Degree C wire against corrosion and abrasion.

Examples of this type of cable includes;

1.Type SFF-2 CSA SEWF Glass Braid
Generally, this cable is preferred in distributing power in internal wiring, motor leads, iron boxes, ovens etc. Tin coating of the soft copper wire offers protection against corrosion and also make it easily soldered. It has a silicone rubber insulation which is soft and can withstand high heat and temperatures since it is flame retardant. As the name suggests, Type SFF-2 CSA SEWF Glass Braid is jacketed with a braided glass that keeps the cable flexible as well as abrasive resistant. It is in line with the specification standards of UL Type SFF-2, CSA CEWF-2, 150 degrees Celsius.

2.Radix Silicone High Temperature Lead Wire
Unlike other cables, Redix wire is designed to perform in installation applications where plastic and traditional rubber insulated wire cannot work especially in high temperatures. Lead wire is no doubt a preferred choice in case there is need for an abrasive resistant wire for use in steel mills, glass factories and foundries. It has an optimum power voltage rating of 600 volts and a silicone rubber insulation, which improves its performance and cable life. Redix wire has a wide range of temperature flexibility of up to 200 degrees Celsius.

200 Degree C Wire
200 Degree C Wire is primarily designed to support power supply in high temperatures. It is a 600-volt cable with a more advanced insulation and jacketing materials that makes it achieve its high temperature performance. This cable is approved to be in line with the Underwriters Laboratory specification standards of flame tests; VW-1 and FT-1. It is therefore suitable for use in locations which are likely to experience high risk of fire. Examples include;

1.Radix SIL-A-Blend Lead Wire
It is a tinned soft copper wire covered with a separating tape and insulated with a composite extruded silicone rubber compacted with a fiberglass, which provides good resistance to cold flow and radiation. The tinning of the copper wire is to ensure that it can be easily soldered during installations and when servicing is done. Radix tin coating is also essential as it provides protection against corrosion. It has voltage rating of up to 1000V and wide temperature range of up to 200 degrees Celsius. This explains why Radix wires are used in applications of kilns, gas dryers, heat pumps, steam irons etc.

2.Radix FEP Lead Wire
This cable is similar to the one discussed above however, there are some few differences especially in their insulation and voltage carrying capacity. In contrary to Radix SIL wire, Radix FEP do not have a complex insulation but rather a simple PEP and FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) insulation. It can also support a limited power voltage of only 600V even though they are intended for the same purpose with the same temperature rating of 200 degrees Celsius. Make Radix wire your priority when you out in the market looking for high temperature serving cable.

There are many type Degree C Wire including 250 Degree C Wire and 450 Degree C Wire available at Nassau electrical supply. Examples discussed above share the same materials and are intended to serve the same purpose.

A High Voltage Wire
As the name infers, a high voltage wire is designed and manufactured to help in the transmission of electrical power at high voltages. Our big load machines in the industries, travelling wave tubes or high-voltage routing need high power voltages to operate steadily and this calls for High Voltage Wire.

What do we mean by a High Voltage wire and cable? Well, it comes as a hook-up wire, round wire or a ribbon cable available in different American Wire Gauge (AWG) sizes. It is made of a stranded nickel plated or tin coated soft copper wire, insulated with a more advanced ethylene tetrafluoroethylene. Examples include;

1.Radix ETFE High Voltage Lead Wire
It has a wide voltage operating range of up to 10KV and can as well perform under high temperatures of up to 200 degrees Celsius. It is insulated with ETFE that provides for flexibility and improved retention ability after aging in high temperatures. The insulation material is also protective against abrasion and corrosive chemicals. This cable can be used in the installation applications in oven ignition system, gas ignitor, top burners, furnaces etc.

2.Radix HI Volt 3239 Lead Wire
It is a lead wire of a tinned copper material for use in high temperature conditions at high voltages. Radix HI Volt is insulated with silicone rubber that is protective against both chemical and mechanical damage. This cable can support high temperature conditions of 150 degrees Celsius and is good choice for applications of wire circuits as well as power control system especially for high temperature and high voltage devices. Above all, this cable is lightweight and easy to carry thus do not fatigue the electricians when pulling and bending it during installation.

3.Radix 1911 Lead Wire
This one is unique compared to its counterparts mentioned above. Even though all power cables are meant for one reason; which is to help in power distribution, Radix 1911 Lead Wire is designed to serve at a different level of power supply which is basically to transmit current at higher voltages of up to 30KV. It also has a very wide temperature operational range of -60 degrees to 250 degrees Celsius. Wide temperature performance of this cable is achieved due to the use of nickel plating. It is insulated with PFA (Perfluoroalkoxy) which provides water resistivity and also do not permit abrasion.

You need to be keen when looking for High Voltage cables and don’t go for low quality cables that are not approved by the UL Listed specification standards, as this could be dangerous even to yourself especially when shocks and blows occur. The types of high voltage wires discussed above meet the approvals of UL and you should go for them to eliminate unnecessary power faults in your system.

Industrial Cables
This is a multipurpose serving cable that is designed to work well in a very demanding and tough applications. An Industrial Cable is a cable that can perform in low/high temperature conditions as well as high voltage applications.

An industrial cable can serve electrical power within the range of 300V to 35KV without fatigue. This cable comes with a variety of sizes, colors as well as insulation and jacketing; but what matters is the ability to serve in nuclear power, mining, instrumentation, solar oil and gas etc. It is tested and approved to meet all the necessary specification standards of Underwriters Laboratory. It is obvious that such a cable should be flexible enough to move around especially in the mines where it is pulled to reach up the mines; this is affirmed by the PUR U sheathing.

Go for this cable and you will be relieved of continuous replacement of your industrial power lines. We expect welding sparks to occur in an industrial environment even once. Well to the Industrial cables a welding spark is not a threat since it has more advanced insulation of PUR A sheathing that offer resistant to the sparks whenever they occur, hence maintaining the cable life. Here are some examples of Industrial cables offered at Nassau electrical.

1.Radix MCS Furnace Lead Wire
It is insulated with a reinforced mica tape, which is responsible for making the cable to withstand high temperature conditions. Mica is well known of its superb thermal resistivity with a working temperature of 1000 degrees Celsius however, it is rated at 450C by UL. This cable is covered by braided ceramic fiber that is also protective against high heat and temperature.

2.Radix Fluid-guard Wire
This type of cable is insulated with a Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) unlike the cable mentioned above, which is insulated with some mica tape. This clearly shows how important the insulation of the cable is; it has a great impact on the intended area a cable will serve.

You will agree with me that all the cables are majorly designed to transmit power in high temperature conditions, and they vary based on the materials used in their insulation and jackets.There are many more of Industrial cables at Nassau Electrical and you are welcome today to seek for more information about our cable products, don’t be left behind.
