  • Bhognath Shivapurapu created a new topic ' Conversion of a machine' in the forum.
    To all the experienced folks out there, how can one convert a single twist buncher into a double twist buncher. Is it technically possible to do it? Appreciate if you could point me to some info on this matter.

  • Mr Monojit Deb created a new topic ' Rated speed of Niehoff MWD' in the forum.
    Dear Sir, I am fresher to a cable company. In my company in first few months of my stint I have observed that the Niehoff MWD machines are running at around 75% of the rated speed, whenever I asked someone they always give a vague reply. Can any one suggest at what optimum speed an Niehoff MWD machine can run at of rated speed?

  • Mr Alwin Paul replied to the topic 'hdpe for ehv cable' in the forum.
    Hi Kumar

    HDPE offers better mechanical properties when compared to PVC. Its harder, better resistant to moisture ingress, termite / rodent resistant due to hardness. This is one good reason why more often HV/EHV cables are jacketed with HDPE.

    In most cases to ensure the jacket isn't damaged after cable transportation and installation, HV / EHV cables shall be subjected to DC Voltage integrity test on jacket as per IEC 60229 recommendations. To enable this test, a conductive coating (eg. graphite) is applied on the jacket.

    Trust this shall be useful.
