Applications of silicone cables
Table of contents
Our Besilen® (Silicone) cables are suitable for diverse applications. The product programme ranges from ignition cables to sheathed cables with mechanical protection and cables with flame protection. Therefore, Besilen® cables can be used for example in the following industries: coke oven plants, foundries, heating appliances, smelteries, steelworks, hot-rolling mills, illumination, in ships and aeroplanes, cement, glass and ceramic factories, bakeries, oil burners, solariums, saunas, coolers, air-conditioning, electronic motor engineering and under certain conditions in food and medical industries. Wherever they are used, Besilen® cables have one thing in common: outstanding heat and cold resistance.
Our Besilen® ignition cables and Besilen® high-voltage ignition cables are suitable for the application at high or very unsteady ambient temperatures of up to +180°C. Besilen® insulated wires and Besilen® insulated strands are suitable for the use at high ambient temperatures especially for the internal wiring of lamps and appliances as well as for the wiring of switchboard plants and distributors, at low mechanical loads.
Ignition cable for the use at high and very unsteady ambient temperatures in lamp and illumination industries, e.g. for floodlight projectors or industrial lamps, in electric heating engineering, in thermal and process technologies, in refrigeration and air-conditioning industries
Flexible applications for internal wiring of lamps, heating appliances, switchboard plants and distributors in industries such as smelteries, steelworks and hot-rolling mills, industrial oven and textile machine construction, lamp, illumination and electric industries, wood working and paper processing industries
Highly flexible applications for internal wiring of lamps, heating appliances, switchboard plants and distributors in industries such as e.g. smelteries, steelworks and hot-rolling mills, industrial oven and machine tool construction, lamp, illumination and electric industries as well as electric drive technology. Equally they are applied as connection of battery system or energy storage.
These insulated strands with 0,6/1kV, 1,8/3 kV resp. 3,6/6 kV are for example used in switchboards and distributors, in industrial furnaces and textile machine construction as well as in railway technology. Equally they are applied as connection of battery system or energy storage.
The strands have proved as current connection in the 3. current collector, at pantographs and as earth connection at wheel sets, coupling blocks and crane mountings on rail vehicles. The strands can be laid easily in narrow spaces due to its extremely flexible construction. The translucent insulation enables an easy control of the state of conductor. An additional copper support braiding under the insulation provides a supplementary reinforcement for applications with high mechanical stress.
This Besilen® cables with fibre-glass braiding are for use at high ambient temperatures for internal wiring e.g. of lamps, heating appliances and electric machines as well as for wiring of switchboard plants and distributors. The fibre-glass braiding offers protection against mechanical damage and at the same time offers excellent heat resistance.
Our Besilen® sheathed cables are suitable for applications at high ambient temperatures in dry, damp and wet rooms as well as for outdoor use; as flexible connection cable with low mechanical load. The mechanical load capacity can be enhanced by using a steel wire armouring, a fibre-glass braiding or an inner sheath. The EMC characteristics can be improved by use of an overall copper screen. If these cables are used for fixed installation, they are only to be installed in ventilated tube systems or conduits.
Application in plastics processing, packaging machine construction, smelteries, steelworks and hot-rolling mills, safety technology, measuring and control technologies, cement, glass and ceramic industries, refrigeration, heat and air-conditioning technologies, power plants, sauna construction
