HV Cable Sheath Testing

HV Cable Sheath Testing

HV Cable Sheath Testing – C&P Engineering Services can carry out a cable sheath test on a newly installed cable which provides a good indicator of the quality of installation. Breaks in the sheath can be detected and can be repaired prior to water ingress contaminating the cable. This is particularly useful on long cable runs or highly essential supply lines. The screen or armour is injected with 5KV down the length of the cable, leakage to earth above a pre-determined level indicated the presence of a break in the sheath. The fault can be tracked down and repaired before being put into service.
