FIREX- II 3C TECK90(XLPE) - Unshielded - (5 kV)

3C TECK 5kV NS

 

Nexans FIREX®-II TECK90 Cables are intended for use in various primary and secondary industries, including chemical processing plants, refineries and general factory environments.
STANDARDS
National : CSA C22.2 N° 131
DESCRIPTION
Even in the most demanding industrial and resource industry applications, Nexans FIREX®-II TECK90 cables have proven to have a superior service and maintenance record.

FIREX®-II TECK90 Cables utilize low acid gas, low flame spread PVC jacket compounds to ensure maximum safety to personnel and equipment in the event of fire.

Applications

FIREX®-II TECK90 Cables, originally developed for use in Canadian mines, are flexible, resistant to mechanical abuse, corrosion resistant, compact and reliable. They are suitable for a wide range of applications, including ALL hazardous locations - Class I, Division 1 and 2; Class II, Division 1 and 2; and Class III.

Industries such as pulp and paper, chemical, petroleum and other primary and secondary manufacturing industries have used FIREX®-II TECK90 Cables, particularly in areas where cables are subject to the risk of mechanical damage and chemical attack.

Commercial applications for FIREX®-II TECK90 Cables include apartment buildings and commercial complexes.

FIREX®-II TECK90 Cables can be relocated easily because they are rugged and flexible. They can be used in both dry and wet locations in open wiring, in ventilated, non-ventilated and ladder-type cable troughs, in ventilated flexible cableways, and for direct burial.

TECK90 Cables are also suitable for service entrance installations - above and below ground.
