These bulky, high current water-cooled cables need to endure demanding Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) conditions. Lost production time due to unexpected power cable change-out is inconvenient Safety on the production floor during take down and installation of heavy, cumbersome water-cooled power cables is a priority. Knowing your spare power cables are stored safely out of harm’s way is a must. EAF power cables from I2r POWER are designed to withstand ambient heat and harsh controlled atmosphere operating conditions with no leaks, no chafing, and protection from molten metal spill.

Put I2r POWER’s long history of expertise to work engineering a long-lasting, reliable solution fit for your production. EAF water-cooled power cable repairs and new builds are tested at each hand-built stage to ensure they are free from leaks, are performing efficiently, and your productivity is not compromised.

Electric Arc Furnace Cables are Engineered for Reliability

Engineering of your EAF power cable core is integral to performance. Construction of EAF water-cooled conductor wire packages are an engineered design effort at I2r POWER. Not only do properly built internal conductor packages and core structure have electrical efficiency advantages, I2r POWER designed cables maximize flexibility and minimize environmental heat. Whatever your demanding EAF conditions, I2r POWER technicians handcraft your water-cooled power cable for durability and longevity.

A range of protective external hose coverings and construction materials are applied to fit your exact production requirements. Inherent chafing can be minimized and flexibility can be maximized with the right choice of specially designed materials. Molten metal splash in many cases is inevitable. I2r POWER designs EAF power cables to withstand your demanding operating conditions, increasing durability and extending cable life.

Quick Disconnect EAF Power Cables for Increased Safety During Handling

Hearing your safety and lost production time concerns, I2r POWER designed E-Z Stahl™ power cable terminals to increase cable maintenance safety and minimize production interruption. Specially designed secure, low-stress, and leak-free rotating terminals for Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) use are an engineered design effort.

Trays for Safe Storage of Electric Arc Furnace Cable Spares

Storing spare cables flat is important to maintaining cable integrity until it’s needed. Using cable trays and stacking trays vertically uses less space and keeps cables organized and safely out of harm’s way. I2r POWER designs and constructs cable trays to fit your production and storage needs.

Rigid Bus Systems for High Value Power Transmission

Rigid EAF bus systems are hand-crafted for high value, long lasting power transmission. Entirely custom built to your exact specifications, I2r POWER technicians hand-build bus bar and bus tube systems to ensure even power distribution, reliable performance, and system longevity. I2r POWER makes system efficiency improvements to ensure a compact, robust, low maintenance design, and to minimize unwanted inductive heating of adjacent equipment

Collaborative Engineered Design Effort for Best Electric Arc Furnace Performance

Whether your need is for design, build, retrofit or custom applications, I2r POWER solutions are always a collaborative, engineered effort. Skilled technicians routinely craft EAF improvements into construction and repair of any OEM system brand, type or application power cable.

The goal at I2r POWER is to optimize electrical efficiency and ensure power cable integrity. Engineered to meet your exact specifications, let’s collaborate on what environmental protection and electrical efficiency solutions you need for your EAF process.
