DYNAF - Dynamic Friction Tests

Plumettaz developed a test bench where dynamic friction can be tested in real jetting (blowing) conditions, in order to determine the coefficient of friction (COF) between a cable and duct/micro-duct.

This service is provided to cable and duct manufacturers, chemical companies, as well as other partners and customers.

The latest tests are described in the attached News Letter from Nexans about their CablOmix cable. It was the first time that the COF was measured in a helicoidal duct contained in a Medium Voltage cable.

The new LUBRICATORS are now available

Lubrication of cable and duct/microduct has a large beneficial effect on cable jetting (blowing), increasing significantly the achievable installation distance.

The Plumett cable Lubricators (patented) are easy to use and result in high efficiency in cable installation
