33kV XLPE Single Core Cable is designed for distribution of electrical power with nominal voltage Uo/U 19/33KV and frequency 50Hz. They are suitable for installation mostly in power supply stations, indoors and in cable ducts, outdoors, underground and in water as well as for installation on cable trays for industries, switchboards and power stations.
33kV XLPE Single Core Cable is designed according to BS 6622 , BS 7835 (LSZH)
Conductor：Plain annealed copper or aluminum complying with IEC 60228/BS 6360. Copper conductors shall be stranded (class 2) and aluminum conductors shall be either solid or stranded (class 2).
Conductor Screen: Extruded layer of semi-conducting cross-linkable compound is applied over the conductor and shall cover the surface completely. The minimum thickness is 0.3mm and the maximum resistivity shall not exceed 500 Ohm-m at 90°C.
Insulation Screen: Extruded layer of semi-conducting cross-linkable compound is applied over the insulation. The extruded semi-conducting layer shall consist of bonded or cold strippable semi-conducting compound capable of removal for jointing or terminating. As an option, a semi- conducting tape may be applied over the extruded semi-conducting layer as a bedding for the metallic layer. The minimum thickness is 0.3 mm and the maximum resistivity is 500 Ohm-m at 90°C. The screen is tightly fitted to the insulation to exclude all air voids and can be easily hand stripped on site.
