Aluminium Clad Steel Wire ACS for Electricity Transmission
1.Aluminum clad steel wire
Aluminum clad steel wire is a piece of round wire made of a round steel core clad with a uniform and continuous aluminum layer. By structure ratio of steel and aluminum, aluminum clad steel wire has different grades, LB14, LB20, LB23, LB27, LB30, LB35 and LB40, with corresponding electric conductivities of 14%, 20.3%, 23%, 27%, 30%, 35% and 40% IACS (IACS stands for International Annealed Copper Standard). Featured by high strength, corrosion resistance and high conductivity, etc., aluminum clad steel wire is widely used in coastal areas, volcano areas, salt atmosphere areas and overhead power line used in areas seriously polluted by industrial materials containing SO2, NO and CO2, etc. It's the optimum material for transmission conductor with kilometric span and carrier cable for electrified railways.
2.Aluminum clad steel series stranded wire
Aluminum clad steel stranded wire is made of an aluminum clad steel wire core stranded with one or more layers of single aluminum clad steel wire in spiral. Opposite stranding direction between neighboring layers provides higher mechanical strength and corrosion resistance. Primarily, it's applied to overhead power transmission in electric system. Our aluminum clad steel stranded wire portfolio includes products for overhead power line, long span, aluminum stranded wire for aluminum clad steel core, aluminum alloy stranded wire for aluminum clad steel core and heat-resistant aluminum alloy stranded wire for aluminum clad steel core.
Aerial electricity transmission, overhead ground conductor, extra high voltage overhead conductor, optical fiber composite overhead ground line and self-damping conductor line, etc
