Trouble-free lead sheathing
H Folke Sandelin AB (HFSAB) from Motala, Sweden, has more than 60 years of experience supplying continuous lead extrusion equipment and know-how for trouble-free lead sheathing of cables, providing a moisture barrier.
The latest design of fully automatic lead extruder from HFSAB is a horizontal floor-standing system that is easy to install and maintain, with a control system that enables continuous operation for weeks with little or no variation in temperature and wall thickness/concentricity.
The lead wall thickness can be kept to a minimum with corresponding savings in lead. A range of die blocks cover diameters from 6 to 190mm (over lead), and melting pots are available for capacities of 10, 18, 35 and 60 tonnes.
Additional equipment includes the CRRS (Cable Repair and Recovery System), which can remove individual layers, such as the outer jacket, lead sheath or triple layer XLPE insulation, without causing damage to the layer below. This allows the layer to be reapplied, and the cable repaired. Even if the cable is going to be scrapped, there are large differences in metal prices for insulated and un-insulated cables.
HFSAB is able to provide upgrades, spare parts, extensive after-sales service, know-how, and fully trained and experienced technician support.
