TECK90 – Copper Conductor

| June 23, 2016

Northern Cables Teck90Northern Cables Inc.’s TECK90 is an interlocked armoured cable for use in petro-chemical, pulp and paper, and other industrial application environments. TECK90 can be used in open and concealed wiring, direct burial, and in hazardous locations.

The insulated conductors are made with cross-linked polyethylene and twisted with an uninsulated ground wire. The twisted core is covered with a PVC jacket, then covered with either interlocked aluminum or galvanized steel, and covered with a PVC jacket over the armour.

TECK90 is manufactured to CSA C22.2#131 and CSA C22.2 #174 to allow it to meet the certain CSA tests including; flame test FT4,-40C cold temperature impact test, low acid gas and sunlight resistance.

TECK90 is available in 600 and 1000-volt constructions from #14 to 750 kcmil. Cables can be manufactured up to 50 conductors. Custom cables are available upon request including composites, vertical riser, and coloured jackets.
