Stranded loose tube cable technology

Posted on 25th Jun 2013 @ 3:33 PM

The fiber cables are positioned in a loose tube made of a high modulus plastic. Tube cables are filled with a filling compound. Fibres can move inside the tube. Tubes are stranded around the strength member into a compact and circular cable core. The cable is completed with a polyethylene sheath.

Main characters of SHKE stranded loose tube cable:

-High strength loose tube that is hydrolysis resistant and special tube filling compound ensure a critical protection of fibres.
-Cabel core filled with Water-blocking material, ensures the fiber cable with good performance of dampproof and Water-blocking.
-The strength member is located in the center of the cable core. The loose tubes are stranded around the strength member at proper lay length. The tensile strength and temperature

performance of cable can be ensured by controlling the fibre excess length and adjusting the lay length.
-Various measures are taken to ensure the cable watertight longitudinally and axially.
-Various measures are taken to ensure the crush-resistance of the cable according to different requirements
