TE Connectivity’s (TE) Raychem medium voltage line covers (MVLC) provide state-of-the-art insulation to help prevent electrical outages caused by trees or wildlife coming into contact with distribution lines.
TE’s Raychem MVLC are designed to insulate existing bare lines without costly conductor replacement expenditures or additional line hardware. The MVLC covers can be applied selectively on problem spans when temperatures are above 0°C. The MVLC covers material formulation are based on TE’s Raychem products’ field-proven experience with medium voltage products in harsh environments. The MVLC materials are UV stable as well as tracking and erosion resistant. The MVLC are 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 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 along the conductor with speed and consistency.
