The new Prysmian Bitherm™ range is supplied in a variety of kit combinations so that everything cable jointing contractors need is included in one cable joint or termination kit.

All Prysmian medium voltage cable joints and cable termination kits are designed to meet and exceed the higher test levels of the new European HD 629 test standard for both paper, polymeric and transition variants.

The Prysmian Bitherm medium voltage range uses heat-activated sealant to provide watertight seals and each product has been tested to meet BS7888 requirements.

Julie Mould, Prysmian Marketing Manager, said: “Because Prysmian is the only manufacturer to offer a range of medium voltage cables, cable joints and cable terminations under one brand, it guarantees a ‘best fit’ solution for the cable jointer and installer. This eliminates problems of poor alignment and products that don’t fit together. By offering accurate technical support Prysmian also helps to eliminate any potential sizing issues which ultimately helps contractors to save time.”

Prysmian Bitherm 11kV cable joints use new isocyanate free JEM resin which is one of the safest cable jointing resins available and outperforms traditional polyurethane cable resins.

Prysmian Bitherm 11kV heatshrink cable joint kits contain three connectors, a hazard free JEM cable jointing resin, heatshrink tubes and an external shell. Joint kits contain a centralised BICON connector, which eliminates problems with poor alignment. The medium voltage cable joints also have a split connector, which consists of a jigsaw connecting profile to give extra tensile strength.

Prysmian Bitherm heatshrink cable joint and termination kits are available for both medium voltage 11kV polymeric and paper insulated three core cables - termination kits have UV resistant non-tracking outer tubes with abrasion resistant outer coverings.
