    Case Studies

        Norfolk Naval Shipyard brought to the rep’s attention a few ideas to improve our welding cables and lines. TPC picked up the ball and designed products that we now use at the Navy Yard every day.

        Paper Mill Conquers Heat and Moisture Issues with Lighting Fixtures Using Chem-Gard® 200

        Paper mill

        PROBLEM:

        One of the world’s leading producers of fiber-based packaging, pulp, and paper was experiencing routine failure of cable on a lighting fixture at its mill in Oklahoma due to the hot wet environment. For each instance of failure, the cost to replace cable was $996 in parts and labor plus 6 hours of production time.

        SOLUTION:

        The TPC representative suggested Chem-Gard® 200 Unshielded Single-Conductor Cable, known for its excellent resistance to chemicals, abrasion, and high heat. Finely stranded, nickel-plated copper conductors improve flexibility and protect against corrosion and oxidation in chemical and high-temperature environments. Fluoropolymer insulation is extremely resistant to chemicals and also mechanically durable. High-temperature fluoropolymer fillers will not wick up contaminants and allow conductors to move freely. A fluoropolymer jacket designed for continuous temperatures up to 200ºC (392ºF) is also resistant to oils, acids, solvents, and chemicals, and provides excellent defense against cutting and abrasion. Roughly 40% smaller in diameter than SOOW cable, the solution is also useful in areas with restricted space and/or in conduit.

        RESULT:

        In service for 21 months, the total expense for TPC’s solution was just $1,620 for parts and labor compared to the nearly $3,000 the customer would’ve spent using its former cable. TPC saved the customer $1,368 and, perhaps more importantly, increased production time by 12 hours.
