XLPE is an abbreviation for cross-linked polyethylene. We produce XLPE Cable from polyethylene under very high temperature and pressure.
We use organic peroxide as the additive. The high temperature and pressure are for the cross-linking effect. Cross-linking is where individual molecular chain link with one another. This linking causes the material to change from thermoplastic to elastic.
Our XLPE has a low dielectric loss. This makes them important insulation for low and high voltage cables. The good thing with or cable is that the dielectric loss is about one decimal lower than other cables. Since the dielectric of XLPE Cable is constant the mutual capacitance is also lower. This reduces the charging and earth-leakage currents without the rigid star pointing the earthing in networks.
You can use XLPE Cable in building services, cooling systems, domestic water piping, etc. You can also use it for offshore oil and gas transportation. Chemical and sewage transportation is also another use of XLPE Cable.
Make your project a success by using XLPE Cable from SSG Cable. Our support team will ensure one year guarantee for every single order. `
<h2id=”Chapter 2″>Chapter 2: How are XLPE Cables Manufactured?
We manufacture XLPE Cable at SSG Cables. We manufacture both medium and high voltage XLPE Cables.
We make use of the recent technology available in the field. Our plant uses an integrated high-performance extraction line. This extraction line we use it to minimize the risk of introducing external contamination. This line comprises of a triple layer crosshead and water-free curing.
It also has a cooling gas vulcanization process.
At first, the conductor is made through a metering capstan. We also refer to it as the line speed master point. In order to manufacture XLPE Cable we use the following components;
A triple extruder crosshead
A vulcanizing tube
A monitoring unit
The triple crosshead allows simultaneous extraction of the cable insulation. It also allows 2 semi-conducting screens with a high degree of smoothness.
All this is done to ensure no voids or external contaminants are introduced. To achieve precise temperatures at the cross-head we use multiple zone control temperatures.
At the vulcanization stage, we cure the triple extruded cable in an inert pressurized gas tube. After it’s heated to the required temperature material to enable cross-linking. We vary the curing temperature and time in order to achieve different cure percentages. Our customers might require different cure percentages.
In the monitoring unit, various functions of our integrated excursion line are monitored and controlled. Some of the functions include; line speed, curing tube temperatures among others. We have automated computers to ensure the production of quality ramps.
Some of the calculated parameters are present in our control unit. We have a closed-circuit TV system for ensuring the running of the cables.
What is the structural design of XLPE Cable?
Our XLPE Cables design conforms to the international standards and those of IEC. Our XLPE Cable is designed to have circular conductors. We are also thinking of introducing single core construction later. The conductors are made of stranded aluminum and copper which is compacted.
Special care should be taken to the conductors to ensure a smooth profile free from sharp juts. This jut may damage the insulation of the cable due to high electric stress. We supply all medium XLPE insulated Cable with extruded semi-conducting screens. This screen helps to protect the main solid XLPE insulation.
The conductor screen provides a smooth circular envelope around the conductor. This diminishes the concentration of the flux lines around the individual wires. It also diminishes electrical stress around the conductor.
Our insulating screen can either be strip cable or bonded. It depends on the order specifications you give us. You can use a bonded screen for high voltage cables.
An earthen envelope will be provided by the copper wires over the extruded insulation screen.
We pass the XLPE Cable through a testing program to ascertain its quality and performance.
We test them for;
– Partial discharge stability
– Its ability to withstand the impulse
– Moisture resistance
– Dielectric stress and overload current.

Chapter 7: What’s the difference between XLPE cable and PVC cables?
XLPE Cable is a cross-linked polyurethane material. PVC Cable polyvinyl chloride insulated.
XLPE Cable can be used for both high and low tension applications. PVC Cable is used for low tension applications.
XLPE Cable structure provides great resistance to stress, wear, and tear. PVC Cable cannot withstand much pressure.
XLPE Cable insulation tends to last longer than that of PVC Cable. XPLE Cable is more environmentally friendly compared to PVC since it doesn’t contain chloride.
XLPE Cable insulation can withstand high temperatures compared to PVC Cable.
The cross-linked polyethylene features in XLPE Cable provides more moisture resistance. PVC Cable doesn’t contain polyethylene hence no moisture resistance.
Looking at the differences you find that XLPE Cable is better than PVC Cable. Make a wise choice today and let us offer you the best.
Chapter 8: What are the properties of XLPE cables?
Low-temperature impact strength- XLPE Cable does not melt on exposure to high temperatures.
Hardness and rigidity- through cross-linking the hardness and rigidity are somehow reduced.
It is resistance to environmental stress cracking. The crosslinking enhances the temperature properties of the base polymer.
We have modified XLPE insulation to limit the number of gases generated during crosslinking. This is particularly useful for high and low voltage cables.
Our XLPE Cable has a maximum rated temperature of 90˚C. They have an emergency rating of up to 140˚C. The required degree of crosslinking according to the IEC standard is between 65% and 85%.
A higher degree of crosslinking could result in stress cracking of the XLPE Cable. A lower degree will result in poor properties of the Cable.
The conductor of the cable is plain stranded copper or aluminum. We have the best cables with the best properties.
Chapter 9: Why use XLPE lug and XLPE ferrule with XLPE Cable?
We fix Lugs and ferrule to our XLPE Cable by inserting the conductor into the tube of the device. Then we squeeze the barrel onto the conductor to form a secure mechanical and electrical joint.
In order to achieve that mechanical joint, the right lug or ferrule needs to be selected. The method of selection depends on the cable used and the area of application.
Some of the reasons we use ferrule and lug on our XLPE Cable include;
Lugs have a thicker wall, improving the crimp and therefore better heat dissipation
Lugs have no inspection window which aids the sealing of the cable end.
XLPE Cable is a compacted cable meaning it has smaller core sizes than the standard cable.
The internal diameters of lugs and ferrules are smaller than the standard lugs and ferrule. This helps o fit the XLPE core size and prevent over crimping.
XLPE Cables are used mainly in distribution networks to prevent moisture content.
