COVER JOINTS - PG

The cover joints are specifically designed to protect the mid span joint,made at the "tensioner station", during conductor stringing operations.

The cover joints consist of two shells made of galvanized steel with shaped ends to house the rubber noses, which protect the mid span joint during the passage over the pulleys. The shells are coupled together by socket screws and the rubber noses are clipped together by belts.

 

Following data to be specified:
1) L = joint lenght after compression
2) d = conductor diameter
3) ch = the hexagon dimension of mid span joint after compression
