Q4. What Is The Process Of Glanding An Armoured Cable?
Installing an armored cable is not a complex process, especially if you are a skilled professional. If not, you can follow this guide; it’ll give you all the information you need on glanding an armored cable.
Now, glanding an armored cable correctly requires you to carry out the following 11 steps:
- Know the type of steel in the cable: You probably know by now that steel is used to armor cables. In this first step, you’ll need to check out the number of cores in that cable. Remember also to know their exact size.
- Check your gland pack: Checking your gland pack simply ensures you have the correct long thread cable gland. The long thread cable gland has different sizes. As such, you’ll find its size within the range of 8-14mm. A typical long thread cable gland is comprised of the following items:
- A pair of shrouds
- A pair of locking nuts
- A pair of gland bodies
- A pair of earthing rings
- Measure your recommended cable length first: Before you begin terminating your cables, you’ll need first to measure the different cable sizes you require and mark them. These markings will help you know where to cut.
- Begin by installing the shroud: Now, here’s where the long thread cable gland installation starts. You’ll need to take your shroud and insert it on the end that you wish to terminate. It’ll require you to be firm and gentle simultaneously.
You should then cut the top carefully while ensuring the shroud has an excellent fit to the cable. Slide it down into the cable after cutting.
- Cut the Cable’s Outer Layer: You can use a cutting tool, preferably a junior hacksaw, to cut the area you marked earlier during the 3rd step. Do not go deep to prevent damaging the cable’s internal conductors.
- Pull the PVC: After carefully cutting the cable’s outer layer, you can then use a smaller and sharper tool (like a knife) to remove the cable’s PVC. It’ll require you to hold the armored cable gently yet firmly while running the cutting tool along the cable’s cutting area.
- Unwinding the wire off the cable: You’ll then need to unwind the wire off the cable so that it leaves the cable’s base by gently rocking it forward and backward. There are times that you’ll find the unwound wire doesn’t break off the base easily. You can use a junior hacksaw to remove it.
- Insert the gland nut: When inserting the gland nut, you’ll need to ensure that your cable gland threads point upwards. Remember not to get rid of too much PVC covering, as it is imperative to remove the PVC to expose the SWA.
- Install your gland with the toothed edge down: Ensure that your gland’s thimble part doesn’t go past the thread. You’ll then wind the gland’s body and nuts open. Then, drop the gland under the SWA.
Do not forget that the rotation must be firm. Check to see whether the SWA is in the thimble segment or the serrated region of the gland.
Pull it out entirely from inside it.
Allow the nut to rise to the strings. Ensure they don’t cross-thread each other. To bring the gland into the armoring, force it down. Make a fist and wind it up.
- Tighten the long thread cable gland: You should ensure that your long thread cable gland is highly tightened. You can do so by using a pair of spanners. One of the spanners should be on the long thread cable gland’s body, while the other should be on the nut. Twist the nut on the gland’s body to tighten it.
Rayphen recommends using a pair of spanners as opposed to adjustable grips. The former will do a better job.
- Insert the earthing ring: You’ll need to insert your earthing ring into the enclosure, followed by the inside nut. It is the last step in the installation process. You’ll also have to ensure that all the steel wires that provide armoring are under the long thread cable gland.
Following the above 11 steps guarantees you the safe installation of long thread cable glands on your armored cables.
