Resistant to drinking, sea and salt water up to depths of 600 metres
HELUKABEL introduces special cables with DVGW (German Association for Gas and Water) approval for permanent use in water to the market.
Many industries require a stable underwater power supply distributed via water-resistant cables: for example, for submersible pumps, sensors, heating or drive motors. With HELUPOWER AQUATIC-750-BLUE, HELUKABEL now offers an in-stock cable that is resistant to drinking, sea and salt water as per DVGW Standard W 270. The cable is also 100 percent resistant to moisture diffusion and, therefore, can be used at depths of up to 600 meters and can be subject to an external pressure of 60 bar. The mechanically robust blue jacket is made of a cross-linked special compound. The cable is approved for a nominal voltage of 450/750 Volt. Application areas include the food and biotech industry, water recycling/cleaning or wastewater treatment plants, aqua farms, leisure parks and wafer production.
The resilient cable can tolerate chlorine levels of up to 0.6 mg/l and seawater with a salinity of up to 3.5 percent. This means that it is suitable for use in various types of water which reduces the number of different cables needed and hence simplifies storage. Cable cross sections range from 1 to 35 mm2. In permanent installations, this cable can be used at ambient temperatures from -40 to +80 degrees Celsius. If laid in the open air, ambient temperatures in the range of -25 to +50 degrees Celsius must be maintained. The maximum operating temperature at the conductor is 90 degrees Celsius.
