Dekoron are promoting a range of cables, which can be furnished with ‘armour’, protecting them from harsh environments in the oil and gas industry. Dekoron cables are distributed in Australia by Maser Communications (Australia) .
The cable sheaths or ‘armour’ were designed to answer the problem of the permeability of existing plastic cable sheaths on the market due to humidity and aggressive chemicals. Penetration of these elements to the core of the cable compromises its overall lifetime performance. A conventional cable core protection against above mentioned elements is generally achieved by applying a lead sheath.
Dekoron’s Dekabon cable constructions can be furnished with armouring options including served wire armour and interlock armour for additional physical protection.
According to Dekoron, the Dekabon technology is scalable and has been applied to instrument, control and thermocouple extension cables, and has already been used by all major oil companies in their refineries and petrochemical facilities for over 25 years.
The technology is now available locally for the oil refining and petrochemical industry.
