As you know, bare copper conductors can be coated with tin to prevent corrosion. Read this blog to learn the difference between bare copper and tinned copper, and when it is best to use the latter.
Mineral insulated heating cables use an electric heating wire of one or more alloys as the heat source. High-purity, high-temperature, electro-fused crystalline magnesium oxide is used as the heat-conducting insulator.
Continuous stainless steel or copper tubes are used as sheathing. This heating cable is manufactured using a special production process.
Romex (NM-B) and THHN are the two most common cable types used in residential and commercial wiring. Confusingly, NM-B wire is not very different from THHN wire as far as construction is concerned.
THHN is a cable with a single thermoplastic high heat resistant nylon wire, while NM-B wire is a sheathed cable with multiple conductors.
The conductors within NM-B wire are either insulated or uninsulated, and the former is actually THHN, which often leads to confusion between the two types of cable.
MarketsandMarkets has published a new research report “Cable Blowing Equipment Market by Power, Cable Type and Region- Global Forecast to 2027”. The report estimates that the fiber optic blowing equipment market will grow from $105 million in 2022 to $133 million in 2027. And it will grow at a CAGR of 4.8% between 2022-27.
1. Overview of the swing
Overhead transmission line conductors occur after eccentric icing, in the wind excitation generated under a low frequency, large amplitude self-excited vibration phenomenon. In layman’s terms when the wind blows to the non-circular cross-section of the wire due to icing, a certain aerodynamic force is generated. This will induce the wire to produce a low frequency (about 0.1 ~ 3 Hz), the large amplitude of self-excited oscillation, due to its form up and down, shaped like a dragon pendulum, called swing.
