THE RIGHT CABLE FOR ABRASIVE APPLICATIONS

Any degredation of your cable’s jacketing material as it moves across a rough surface is considered abrasion. Common causes of failure due to abrasive applications are having too thin of a jacket or too soft of a jacket that fails to protect your cable’s conductors or your cable’s shielding during operation.

Choosing the proper abrasion resistant cable will keep your machines up and running efficiently, reduce downtime and allow you to use cable for a longer period of time. 

Types of Abrasive Applications:

• Cable Trays • Control Panels
• Anywhere Rubbing or Vibration Occurs • Crane Hoists
• Conveyors • Cable Reels
• Pumps • Port Cranes
• Furnaces • Retractable Reels
• Generators • Heavy Duty Tools
• Motor Operated Valves • Pendant Pushbutton Stations
• Kiln Fans • Welding Primary

ABRASION RESISTANT WIRE & CABLE PRODUCTS

If you're planning on installing an abrasion resistant cable into an application that includes additional harsh environments, such as extreme heat, not to worry. Most abrasion resistant wire and cable products also carry other protective attributes like chemical, extreme heat and moisture resistance.
