Cathodic protection cable from Performance Wire and Cable is suitable for direct burial applications, such as pipelines, storage tanks, pilings, well casings, cables, marine crafts, along with any other burial or water submerged metallic structures. Our HMWPE cathodic protection cable utilizes stranded copper conductors that are insulated with a high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE) compound that provides strong resistance to abrasion, crushing, chemicals, oil, moisture and other elements. We use all natural materials in the production of our pipeline cathodic protection cables. With a copper conductor rated for 600 volts, our HMWPE wire is available in sizes 14 AWG through 1/0 AWG.

Cathodic Protection Specifications:

  • The conductor is a soft annealed stranded copper (per spec ASTM B-3 & B-8)
  • Insulation is black high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE)
  • Temperature of operation is 75 degree Celsius
  • Rated for 600 volts

This specification describes a single conductor pipeline cathodic protection cable. It is intended to carry a DC current to anodes and cathodes in a cathodic protection system. Custom put-ups are available. The wire will be identified by surface ink printing indicating conductor size and manufacturer.
