The complete configurations of WTEC's ESP system power cables offer maximum life efficiency. WTEC's ESP cables are a sophisticated assemblage, all which consist of the highest quality materials. All components from the conductor, insulation, barrier, jacket, and armor are manufactured to the same standard as WTEC's industry recognized cables which use the latest technology and highest quality control regulations.
WTEC offers round and flat ESP Cable to comply with casing diameter that feature a layered/ armored construction. These cables are appropriate for a range of temperatures up to 450°F/ 232°C, gas content including carbon dioxide or hydrogen sulfide, chemicals such as sulfuric acid or carbonic acid and high pressure environments. WTEC's ESP cables are available in 3000, 4000, 5000, and 8000 voltage ratings, with up to two embedded 3/8in. capillary lines, and American Wire Gauge (AWG) conductor sizes of 1,2,4, and 6. All WTEC's ESP cabling feature fully annealed, high-conductivity bare copper or tin coated for cost-effectiveness and additional protection against corrosion.
Our X-WeldTM product group provides a complete selection to the oil, gas, and petrochemical industry and offers cables from 300 voltage instrumentation through 35 kV power cable. Continuous aluminum armor is applied as a continuous strip of aluminum, which is wrapped around the cable and welded at the seam for impenetrability. Corrugation permits bending without kinking. Continuous armored cable provides protection from liquids as well as crush and impact protection. It is designed to ensure maximum life efficiency in extreme environments where it is exposed to chemicals and/or moisture. X-WeldTM is constructed according to the standardization by the refining industry as the only acceptable product construction1 and is the primary in offshore production platforms, refineries, LNG facilities, and petrochemical processing mills.
