STEELFLEX Methane ARMORED XLPE/PVC/SWA/PE
Steel Wire Armored cable is integral filled to eliminate gas migration and is rated for use in Deep Well Submersible Methane Gas. Outer jacket is special black flame retardant PE type ST7 FR acc. to IEC 60502-1.
Cable is designed for Severe Duty applications where armoring is usually required. The jacket, made with an extra hard abrasion and impact resistant HDPE compound minimizes the potential for damage under severe conditions. The Armor is made of Steel Wire Armor that will not break down like aluminum will is gaseous environments. The inner PVC Jacket eliminates the possibility of any gas wicking so ballooning of the cable is essentially eliminated even if the outer jacket and armor are compromised. The cable is rated for use in deep well submersible fracking, methane and natural gas applications not exceeding 90°C.
