Distribution-Grip dead end
May 4,2017hits:2201

General recommendations

Distribution-Grip dead-ends are recommended for termination of bare or jacketed conductors used in distribution constructions. The high mechanical strength, short length, and interchangeability among different conductor sixe meet the requirement of all categories of distribution lines.

 

Jacketed Conductors

Distribution-Grip dead-ends, manufactured from galvanized steel are recommended for direct application on the jacketed conductors

 

Rated holding strength

For bare homogenous conductors, the holding strengths shown on the data sheets approximate the rated breaking strength of the conductor. If used with ACSR the rated holding strength approximates the full strength of aluminum strand plus a percentage of the steel core. Holding strength for jacketed conductor is dependent upon construction.

 

Vibration Dampers

The use of Spiral Vibration Damper should be considered for areas experiencing a history of vibration.

 

Material used

Destruction-Grip dead-ends are made of material compatible with the conductor to which they are applied

 

Application and inspection

Ensure the correct size fitting is used. For detailed method of installation refer to application instructions.

 

Recommended fittings

(Important dimensions to be taken into account when selecting suitable types of thimble)

 

Distribution-Grip dead-end loops are designed for use with a variety of thimbles, clevis thimble and insulators, all of which should have smoothly contoured surfaces and adequate groove widths and loop diameters.

 

Production Characteristics

  • Crossover Marks: Indicate starting point for application
  • Color code: assists in identification of strands size.
  • Identification label: Shows catalogue number and strand diameter range.
  • Lay direction: Must be same as that of the outer layer of the strand to which it is applied
