Video 3 : Socomore Techlube HD Cable Lubricant : String & Cling Consistency

Demonstration of Socmore Techlube HD heavy duty cable installation lubricant being poured onto a high voltage cable to highlight its "String & Cling" consistency which gives a perfect coating of the cable lube onto the cable and allows easy application during the cable pull.

Like all the cable lubricants in the Techlube range, Techlube HD is a biodegradable waterbased lubricant.

 

Video 4 : Socomore Techlube HD Cable Lubricant

This video demonstrates an underground cable pull in action using Socomore Techlube HD cable lubricant.

Socomore Techlube HD is a heavy duty cable lubricant for heavy cables and difficult cable pulls, this includes heavy low voltage LV SWA armoured cables and HV high voltage power cables such as 11kV and 33kV single core and three core types. 

In this video, Socomore Techlube HD was pumped onto the cable using a manual pump and pouring. Techlube is a range of biodegradable, non toxic waterbased cable lubricants.

Heavy Duty Cable Pulling Installation Lubricant Benefits:

  • This HD cable pulling lubricant provides a high performance, biodegradable water based lubricant for heavy cables and difficult cable pulling installations
  • String and cling consistency provides perfect adhesion to cable in wet weather
  • Resistance to wash off in water filled cable ducts
  • Compatibility tested with materials commonly used in power cable accessories, cable joints and LV-HV cable jackets
  • Does not contain any salt, detergent, paraffin or grease which can degrade cable jackets, cable sheaths or cause hotspots

 

Video 5 : Socomore Techlube PHD - Pourable Cable Installation Lubricant 

Socomore Techlube PHD is a pourable, high performance underground cable lubricant for medium weight and lighter cable pulling installations.

A biodegradable and non toxic cable lubricant, its string and cling consistency gives perfect adhesion onto cable in wet weather and resistance to wash off in water filled ducts. It reduces friction and risk during the cable pull.

Socomore Techlube PHD is specially designed to be poured onto the cable or into the duct. Cable lubricant suitable for use with electrical and power cables.
