Hendrix and Kerite will demonstrate their extensive portfolio of products and consulting services for electric utilities. In addition to design, engineering and installation services, Hendrix and Kerite representatives will provide expert guidance on the use of aerial spacer cable, polyethylene insulators and high-voltage (HV) cable in transmission and distribution applications.
A superior alternative for 15kV to 69kV overhead conductor installations where reliability is a concern, Hendrix Aerial Cable Systems are suitable for challenging applications including long spans, environmentally sensitive areas and heavily wooded installations. For power systems exposed to harsh challenges such as falling trees, heavy ice and damaging storms, Hendrix aerial cable systems are designed for strength, featuring three covered conductors supported by a heavy gauge messenger wire.
Hendrix lightweight molded polymer products withstand weather extremes, resist damage from impact, and are excellent alternatives to porcelain insulators. All Hendrix HPI Insulators are manufactured in the United States from a proprietary blend of track-resistant, high density polyethylene. Tie Top, Vise Top, and Line Post Insulators are tested in conformance with ANSI C29 specifications and exhibit electrical and mechanical characteristics as compared to wet process porcelain including greater leakage distance, higher flashover and impulse values and lighter weight. These vandal-resistant products won’t chip, crack or break, and are green recyclable.
Kerite high-voltage underground and subsea cable products come in voltages from 46kV through 138kV for power transmission applications, and are engineered for the longest service life of any transmission cable. The most flexible in the industry, Kerite HV cable guarantees rapid, trouble-free installation and delivers excellent performance on power lines within substations, substation getaways, subsea, refinery and other industrial applications.
Representatives at the booth will also provide information on Kerite’s services for high-voltage underground installation projects. As engineering, installation and maintenance consultants, the company provides a single point of contact for services from procurement through installation and acceptance testing. Kerite provides project management, site surveys/system layout, custom cable designs, cable installation, splicing and terminating, system testing, and complete project documentation.
