VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- FireSecurity AS (Norway) announced this week its ground-breaking move into the USA/Canadian Electrical Cable protection market with its "Lifetime Extension Program."
Utilizing Fire Security's proprietary FS5 Cable Coating System, Fire Security AS can extend the operational life of the cable(s) by up to fifteen years. Longer if applied to new or relatively new cables. The FS5 ablative coating system can be applied in interior and exterior situations and whilst it will protect the cables against UV, Ozone, mud, oil, salt and chemicals it critically also provides the cables with fire protection. FS5 coated cables exhibit no derating yet are protected against a 60-minute hydrocarbon fire of 1100°C.
Cable manufacturers typically indicate – although never guarantee - that the life of your cable in an optimal environmental and operating condition is from twenty to thirty years. Most cables operating in commercial, power generation and distribution, heavy industry and petrochemical assets are exposed to a wide variety of operational stressors. These include fluctuating or extreme temperatures, high UV and Ozone radiation levels, high humidity, water submersion as well as exposure to chemicals, dust, dirt and corrosive containments.
The reality is that a power cable is normally considered service-aged after five years of continuous service. During this operational period a properly installed power cable should show little or no visible signs of aging or insulation/sheath deterioration. After this period, it's critical to implement a condition assessment routine that regularly monitors the health and efficiency of your cables.
Should such a routine highlight damaged, worn or cracked cables, Fire Security has the solution.
"Rerouting or replacing your damaged cables typically has huge cost implications due to operational interruption or extended shutdown periods," says Sean Ritchie, Technical Director of Fire Security AS in Canada. "With the FS5 repair system applied to live damaged cables Fire Security offers a cost effective solution that presents no operational interference and no loss in productivity."
Over the span of 30 years, Fire Security AS has saved millions of dollars for their customers in repairing and extending the lifetime of electrical cables and now this technology is available in North America.
