Overview

TE’s Raychem MVLC is Designed to insulate existing bare lines without costly conductor replacement expenditures or additional line hardware. The MVLC cover may be applied selectively on problem spans when temperatures are above 0°C. The MVLC cover material formulation is based on TE’s Raychem products’ field-proven experience with MV products in harsh environments. The MVLC material is UV stable as well as tracking and erosion resistant. The MVLC cover is cross-linked material to create an extremely robust insulation system, ensuring many years of reliable operation in the harshest environments.

TE has designed a special tool that ensures fast and reliable application of the MVLC cover on energized lines. It attaches directly to the overhead conductor and remains stationary in a single location on each span. The tool may be manually or automatically operated, using a hand crank or with the aid of a gasoline powered drill. The tool forms, closes and feeds the MVLC cover along the conductor with speed and consistency.
