ENERGY AUSTRALIA 11kV Tee & Stub Tee MIRP Resin Joints Training Presentation

Introduction This joint is suitable for connecting 11kV main and branch cables of: 3 core polymeric cables, Single core polymeric cables, 3 core PILC cables, Single core PILC cables 35 to 400 sqmm copper or aluminium conductors. - All joint kits are supplied as 3 phase kit.


This presentation provides a general guideline to perform jointing of a MIRP joint. In the event of inconsistency between this presentation and the jointing instruction, the jointing instruction shall prevail.

Kit Inspection Read Jointing Instruction CAREFULLY before carry out jointing. Check all components are available and identified.

Preparing Cables

Prepare cables to dimensions given on the jointing instruction

Support cables at both ends

Temporary Spacers Add temporary spacers for: - proper alignment with joint shell, and - better support when bending cables

Preparing Cables
