Multicore Cable Manufacturing in India
Cable manufacturing industry has grown multiple folds in India in the recent decade. The amount of money being invested in this segment has never been higher. And not only investments, but the returns have been higher than ever before, as well. Manufacturing in itself may seem like a piece of cake, but this cake indeed has a lot of steps that go into its making!
For example, let’s take Multicore cables. Multicore cables are probably the most widely used cables in the world right now.
These cables are so versatile that they can be used in the smallest photovoltaic cells, where almost zero resistance is required as well as in the high-tension power transmission cables, where high voltage transfer is required.
To understand more about these cables, we can look at the major constituents of this cable first:
- Conductor: This is the core of any cable, be it multi core or single core. This layer is usually made of copper or aluminum or their alloy in such a way that the material is highly malleable, ductile and has a minimum level of brittle to it. This is the part that conducts electricity, hence even molecular level of impurities can cause a drastic change in the resistivity of the wire.
- Conductor Screen: This layer is a semiconducting screen provided to prevent current leakage and ensure uniformity in current delivery. It also minimizes electrostatic stress.
- Insulation: Insulation is the non-conducting layer that prevent current leak to the outside environment. This layer is made up of PVC or any other plastic/elastic insulation material. These plastics are generally thermoplastics that adhere to the high temperature.
- Filler/Separating sheath: These are soft insulation shields that separate each insulation. This prevents electrostatic leak in between the live and neutral wires.
Multicore manufacturing in India is very common but only a handful of manufacturing facilities are providing the optimum quality to withstand the harsh operating conditions of India. Take Delhi for example, in summer, the temperature reaches a soaring high and in winter it drops to freezing cold levels. This causes the wires to lose insulating strength over the years and this is where Industries like Prime Cable Industries Pvt. Ltd. step in. They provide a very high-quality range of products which features a special PVC compound which is Lead Free, Heat Resistant (LFHR) and Flame Retardant (FR). Prime Cables are the only wire products in India to be made using Lead Free PVC, which makes them non-toxic and completely safe for users as well as installers. Prime Cables offer you wires with Lead Free properties at Zero Additional Cost . These wires can last you a lifetime without breaking a sweat in summers or losing it’s conductivity in Winters. For a cable of this quality, we don’t have to think twice even for spending a little extra. But the best part about these cables is, they cost less than their competition, which makes them a no brainer choice for your next renovation project!
