      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.
