All Aluminium Conductor (AAC)

APPLICATIONS

Used as bare overhead conductor for distribution lines. Because of its poor strength to weight ratio, AAC has limited use in Transmission lines. AAC is extensively used in urban areas where spans are usually short but high conductivity is required.

SPECIFICATIONS

'Anvil' AAC bare conductor can be supplied to meet various international specifications like ASTM, BS, CSA, DIN, IEC, etc.

CONSTRUCTION

EC Grade hard drawn aluminium wires concentrically stranded.

A few stranding arrangements are as below

All Aluminium Alloy Conductor (AAAC)

APPLICATIONS

Used as bare overhead conductor (or power distribution lines). Designed utilizing a high-strength aluminium alloy to achieve a high strength-to-weight ratio; affords better sag characteristics. Aluminium alloy gives AAAC higher resistance to corrosion than ACSR.

SPECIFICATIONS

Anvil AAAC bare conductor can be supplied to meet various International specifications like ASTM, BS. CSA, DIN, IEC. etc.

CONSTRUCTION

Aluminium alloy 6201 wires, concentrically stranded from 7 strands to 61 strands depending upon the size.

Aluminium Conductor Alloy Reinforced (ACAR)

APPLICATIONS

Used as bare overhead transmission conductor or primary or secondary distribution conductor. Where higher capacity and strength for equal weight are prime tine considerations. ACAR is the solution over ACSR due to its better strength to weight ratio.

SPECIFICATIONS

Anvil bare ACAR conductors are tested to meet ASTM B-524 specification.

CONSTRUCTION

ACAR is constructed by concentrically stranding hard drawn EC grade aluminium wires over an aluminium alloy (6201) core. In some constructions, the aluminium alloy (6201) strands are distributed in layers throughout the EC aluminium strands.



Typical stranding arrangements are as below

(Other stranding can be designed to meet special requirements)


Aluminium Conductor Steel Reinforced

APPLICATIONS

ACSR has the established reputation for economy and dependability in power transmission lines. Also used for primary and secondary distribution lines. Wide range of steel content from 7% to 40% can be achieved by different standings to meet desired strength.

SPECIFICATIONS

Anvil ACSR bare conductor can be supplied to meet various International specifications like ASTM, BS, CSA, DIN, IEC, etc.

CONSTRUCTIONS

EC Grade Aluminium wires concentrically stranded over a steel core. The steel core wire is zinc coated. Various grades of coaling is available. The steel core can also be 'aluminized' to produce ACSR/AZ or 'Aluminium clad1 to produce ACSR/AW. If required additional protection against corrosion can be provided by application of steel core with grease.

 

Some standard and special stranding are as below

(Other stranding can be designed to meet special requirements)


 

GREASED CONDUCTORS

In order to reduce the risk of corrosion in some environments, conductor can be produced with grease filling.
The grease filling can be of following types:

Fig. G1  : Steel core only greased.

Fig. G2  : All the conductor is greased except the outer layer

Fig. G3  : AH the conductor is greased including the outer layer

Fig. G4  : All the conductor  is greased except the outer surface of the wires in the outer layer.
