Cable boosts performance and durability

12 October 2007

Nexans has extended its Buflex range of polyurethane sheathed reeling energy cables with the addition of Buflex X’Prem. It is designed to boost the performance and durability of cranes operating at high speeds of up to 150 metres/minute in general industrial and port and terminal applications. In stringent laboratory tests, Buflex X’Prem has shown that it can increase cable lifetime substantially, compared with conventional reeling cables.

The new design greatly improves the cable in terms of traction and durability, without needing to increase its size. The thinner and lightweight polyurethane sheath enables Buflex X’Prem to offer similar performance to standard rubber sheathed reeling cables, but within a smaller overall diameter and enhanced abrasion resistance. This enables crane operators and OEMs to utilise smaller motorised reels to achieve equal or superior productivity, possibly even with lower powered motors.

Buflex X’Prem is available in both a low-voltage, yellow version, for applications up to 1kV, such as in the general industrial crane market and a medium-voltage, red or black, version for applications from 6kV to 20 kV in ports and terminals. In addition, copper twisted pair cables or optical fibres can be integrated within the cable to combine advanced controls with the crane power supply.
