Case Studies

      We experienced some failures with some of our armored cable runs and decided to give TPC’s 6/4 Super-Trex® a trial run and now we have installed close to 4,000 feet of this cable while experiencing zero failures.

      CUSTOMER PROBLEM:

      A customer who operates a protein processing facility kept having issues with the cable they were using to power their side puller machine. Typically, it would fail once a month because of all the flexing required up and down the rails as well as the harsh chemicals and water that was used in the cleaning process.

      TPC SOLUTION:

      We suggested they try TPC’s Super-Trex® Reduced Diameter Control Cable for the flexible specially compounded TPE jacket. Not only does the jacket resist most chemicals, it’s also flame and heat resistant.

      CUSTOMER’S RESULT:

      At the writing of this report, the customer had TPC cable in the application for 30 months! Although the initial cable cost was almost double, withstanding the application environment for 30 months has saved the company $5,374.50 in material and labor costs. They’ve increased production by 116 hours.
