KEI WIRES & CABLES

HT Cables
KEI manufactures HT XLPE cables up to 132KV conforming to National and International Standards at Bhiwadi plant.

KEI has State of Art HT cable plant with German technology. The manufacturing capability is upto 132KV, however at present
we offer cable range upto 66KV.

We have Two CCV line with a Single point triple extrusion and computerized sophisticated control and monitoring systems.
The CCV line at Bhiwadi was imported from Machinenbau Scholz GMBH & Co KG, and CCV line at Chopanki supplied paul
Troester Germany. Both manufacturers renowned in CCV line technology and have supplied more than 250 lines world over.

HT plant is complete with heavy duty machines for wire drawing and conductor making, laying up, armouring , sheathing and
packing.

The process commences with a compacted circular conductor being fed from the pay off stands into the extruder on elevated
platform. The conductor passes through extruders crosshead, it is covered first with semiconducting screen layer then the
XLPE insulation, followed by the outer semiconducting core screen. This crosshead is specially designed to feed three
compounds from three extruders at one point described as Singe point Triple extrusion.

Thereafter, the extruded core enters and passes through vulcanizing line known as CCV line (Continuous Catenary Vulcanising)
and the XLPE insulated core is cured in the process. In CV line inert atmosphere is maintained by the Nitrogen gas which is at
high pressure and high temperature.
This process is popularly known as Single point Triple extrusion CDCC(Completely Dry Cured and Cooled Curing) Process.

Over the cured core a copper screening is provided by lapping of copper tape or for special requirements a layer of copper wires
is provided. Core is tested for Partial Discharge and then as per requirement; the cores are laid up with fillers, provided with
inner sheath, armoured and sheathed. Sheath can be of PVC, HDPE, FRLS, ZHFR, PCP or CSP compound. Seamless Lead
Alloy E Sheath is extruded for moisture barrier, necessary for EHV Cables and Submarine Cables before Inner Sheath.

KEI manufacturing plant and process ensures great XLPE cables for the new age Power sector and industry. Our modern plant
takes full advantage of the new generation XLPE compounds which offer fast curing and superior electrical parameters,
dimensional control and higher productivity.

Triple Extrusion and CDCC process ensure contamination free cores. All three layers are bonded and core has least
eccentricity and ovality. Insulation itself is free of micro voids and with negligible moisture content.

To control the manufacturing process the line has been provided with many sophisticated instruments and servo controls
all monitored by the computer. Important systems are:

X Ray Non touch sensors of SIKORA make for thickness and dimensional control. This system
continuously measures the dimensions of insulated cores. Unit has capability to measure
multilayer dimensions in all directions and record and analyse the data on line.
CCV tube has a Touch Less Sag control system. This ensures no marks/lines on core unlike older lines.

For EHV Cables conductor pre-heater, core rotation and De-gasification facilities have been provided.

Computerised control system ensures optimum efficiency, fast start up, synchronized operations
of compound feeds, three extruders, CCV line gas temperature zones, pay off and takeup.

Nevertheless KEI XLPE cables compare better than those produced with older plants when checked for Microvoids, Moisture
content, PD levels, dielectric strength.

We have strict Quality plan and fully equipped Testing laboratory to ensure cables of best quality are produced as per the
design and specifications prescribed. Cables have been type tested as per International Standards.

Inventory and production plans are controlled by BANN ERP system. This ensures reliable and prompt delivery and
operational efficiency.

KEI offers variety of designs to suit different installations viz. Aerial Bunched cables, Water tight construction, Stainless
steel armouring, for Offshore and Ship installations etc.

We have many satisfied customers from many countries and diverse industry. We shall announce the expansion of our
range beyond 66KV very soon.

CURRENT RATINGS
KEI Recommendations for Current Ratings:
The Current rating of power cable is defined by the maximum intensity of current (amperes) which can

flow continuously through the cable, under permanent loading conditions, without any risk of damaging
the cable or deterioration of its electrical properties.

The value given in the tables are valid for one circuit in a three phase system under conditions specified.
For grouping cables rating factors must be used.

The current carrying capacities mentioned in KEI technical data are intended as a guide, to assist operating
engineers in selecting cables for safety and reliability.
Basic assumptions and conditions of installation :

Max. conductor Temperature

: 90 C.

Ambient Ground Temperature

: 30 C.

Ambient Air Temperature

: 40 C.

Thermal resistivity of soil

: 150C.Cm/W

Depth of laying (to the highest point of the

cables laid direct in the ground )


3.3,6.6 & 1 IkV Cables

: 90 cm

22 and 33kV Cables

: 105cm

Max. Conductor Temperature

for Short Circuit

: 250 C.

To obtain the maximum current carrying capacity of a cable operating at different conditions from the
standard, various rating factors are to be multiplied, as follows :Ia=KxIs

in amperes

Where ;
I a : Current rating at actual operating conditions (amperes)
I s : Current rating at standard operating conditions (amperes)
K : Rating factor as, applicable.

COMPANY PROFILE

KEI
PVC AND XLPE LT POWER CABLES
KEI INDUSTRIES LIMITED is manufacturing LT Power Cables with PVC or XLPE insulation of voltage grade upto 3.3 KV
conforming to various Indian and International Standard Specifications. KEI also manufactures other types of cables
as listed at the end of this catalogue.
CROSS LINKED POLYETHYLENE (XLPE)

XLPE means cross-linked polyethylene or vulcanized polyethylene. The basic material is low density polyethylene.
Polyethylene is a thermoplastic material consisting of long chain of hydrocarbon molecules. At elevated temperatures
these molecules tend to move relative to one another so that the material becomes increasingly deformable and
will eventually melt at the temperature around 110OC.

By means of process similar to the vulcanization of rubber the polyethylene molecules can be cross-linked. The
process of cross-linking or vulcanization consists of producing chemical bonds at interval between the long molecular
chain to give a ladder effect which prevents slippage between molecules. As a result of cross-linking the material
becomes heat resistant and does not soften at higher temperatures. Further it has better resistance to stress
cracking and good resistance to ageing in hot air. With the change of structure there is no adverse effect on
electrical properties.
Advantages of KEI XLPE CABLES
3 Dielectric losses are very small.

3 Higher current carrying capacity.

3 Higher short circuit rating 250OC. as against 160OC for PVC.


3 KEI XLPE can retain flexibility down upto - 40OC.

3 Jointing and Termination is easy.


3 Light in weight.

3 They are not prone to fatigue damages due to vibrations or loading cycles.

3 Has better resistance to most chemicals, oils, acids, etc.

3 Can be installed along cable routes without elevation limitations.

KEI WIRES & CABLES

Instrumentation Cables
KEI Industries Limited manufactures a wide variety of
cables suitable for process instrumentation. In the
projects related to power generation & distribution,
chemical & fertilizer industries and various other types
of engineering industries, the process instrumentation
plays a vita role in measurement, supervision and control
of the process. Introduction of microprocessor based/
computerised instrumentation has demanded stringent
quality requirements alongwith special electrical
parameters for instrumentation cables. Very low level
electrical signals pass between measuring end and
display units/controllers which are situated far off. These
low level signals are prone to external noise pickups
and heavy silenuation during transmission.

All this means that the cables to be used for


instrumentation should be designed and manufactured
very carefully, KEI with its meticulous efforts in
maintaining quality, stringent in process control during
manufacture and hte knowledge of cable designing, is
proud to say that it is capable of supplying
instrumentation cables meeting any Indian/
International standard or a specific requirement desired
by project authority. The efforts done by KEI are
reqarded by acceptance of our quality by the countrys
prime organisations such as NTPC, PDIL, EIL, BHEL,
TATAs, IOCL, L&T, ABB, KRUPP Ind, BPCL., HPCL, ESSAR,

COMPANY PROFILE

Thermocouple Extension/Compensating
Cables

These cables can also be termed as instrumentation


cables, since they are used for process temperature
measurement. The construction is similar to paired
instrumentation cable but the conductor material is
different. Thermocouples are used in processes to
sense temperature and is connected to the
pyrometers for indication and control. The

thermocouple and pyrometers are electrically


conducted by thermocouple extension/compensating
cables. The conductors used for these cables are
required to have similar thermo-electric (emf)
properties as that of the thermocouple used for sensing
the temperature. The cables are manu-factured as per
IS:8784, ANSI-MC 96. 1, B.S., ENI, DIN and customers
specification.

Handling & Storage


Handling & Storage
Handling (Unloading at Site)
On receipt of the cable drums visual inspection of drums should be made. While unloading the drums from
the lorry/trailer, a crane or suitable derrick system with chain pulley arrangement should be used and the
drums carefully lifted and deposited on the ground. When lifting the drums with the crane , it is recommended
that the lagging should be kept in place to prevent the flanges from crushing on to the cable. If the crane is not
available , a ramp should be prepared with approximate inclination of 1:3 or 1:4. The cable drum should be
rolled over the ramp by means of ropes and winches. Under no circumstances should the drums be dropped
to the ground as the shock may cause serious damage to the inner layer of the cables.
Cable should not be dragged along the earth surface
Cable ends should always be sealed by means of suitable end sealing materials to prevent miniaturization of
cores and armour
Drums should be rolled in direction of arrow marked on the drums
Storage
The site chosen for the storage of cable drums should be dry and covered place to prevent exposure to
climatic conditions and wear and tear of wooden drums and it should be preferably on a concrete /
consolidated surface which will not cause the drums to sink and thus lead to flange rot and extremely difficult
in moving the drums.
The drums should be stored in such a manner as to leave sufficient space between them for air circulation. It
is desirable for the drums to stand on battens placed directly under the flanges.
In no case shall the drums be stored flat i.e. with flanges horizontal
Minimum permissible bending radius
While installing the cables , the following minimum bending radius should be observed in order so that the
cable, especially insulation, may not undergo damage,. Wherever possible larger bending radius should be
used
