Cable to Ground Rod or Other Rounds, Heavy Duty

HDGTC182B

Heavy duty connections were originally developed to be used on reclaimed cable. The heavy duty connections use a larger size connection cavity in the mold and a larger size welding material than the equivalent standard duty connection.

The larger size welding material supplies extra BTU’s to melt the heavy oxide coating on the conductor and to overcome some severe field conditions. Heavy duty connections eliminate cutting the run conductor on certain types of connections, reduce cable cleaning requirements for old or reclaimed cable, and increase reliability under adverse field conditions.

Heavy duty connections are increasingly being specified for copper-coated steel conductor connections.

Features

  • Forms a permanent, low resistance connection
  • Provides a molecular bond
  • ERICO CADWELD Exothermic Connections are rated with the same current capacity as the conductor
  • Portable installation equipment with no external source of power required
  • Installers can be easily trained to make ERICO CADWELD Exothermic Connections
  • Connections can be visually inspected

For applications such as computer room, tunnel or other low-ventilation areas, specify a smokeless ERICO CADWELD EXOLON mold. Add an XL prefix to the standard mold part number when ordering (for example, a TAC2Q2Q becomes XLTAC2Q2Q). Similarly, ERICO CADWELD EXOLON welding material is also designated by the XL prefix (for example, 150 becomes XL150).
