ACSR Osprey Conductor & Chickadee Conductor

chickadee and osprey conductor simple overview

ACSR osprey conductor & chickadee conductor are both aluminum conductor steel reinforced wire of ACSR-ASTM-B232 standard. We usually use them as bare overhead transmission conductor and as primary and secondary distribution conductor and messenger support. ACSR offers optimal strength for line design. Variable steel core stranding enables desired strength to be achieved without sacrificing ampacity.

The specifications of osprey conductor & chickadee conductor

acsr osprey cnductor and chickadee stucture As the acsr conductors of ACSR-ASTM-B232 standard, they have much simple structures. In fact, the osprey conductor is very similar with chickadee conductor in specification. They both consist of 1 stranded steel and 18 stranded aluminum. However, the diameter and area of osprey conductor is bigger than chickadee conductor.

The following is the parameter lists of ACSR osprey conductor & chickadee conductor.

Why does osprey conductor & chickadee conductor failure?

Everything may have something wrong, if they have worked for a long period of time. The osprey conductor is no exception. As we all know, it is one of the aluminum conductor steel reinforced. And we usually use it in overhead electrical transmission. Like other conductors, the conductor sometimes may broke down. That will affect our life and production activities. So it is necessary to know the reasons that make your osprey conductor failure.

the reason of acsr osprey condcutor and chickadee conductor failureIn Huadong Cable Group’s opinion, external damage is one cause of conductor failure. From the analysis of the operation in recent years, a considerable number of conductor faults are caused by mechanical damage. Let’s take chickadee conductor example an example. If the conductor laying is not standardized during installation, it will cause mechanical damage. External damage of chickadee conductor may lead to short circuit, which has a direct impact on the safe production of electrical appliances and electricity units. Another important cause of circuit failure is long-term load operation. As we all know, if it is overloaded , the load current will inevitably cause the conductor to heat up when passing through the cable. Too high temperatures will accelerate the aging of the conductor. So this is why conductors failures are particularly frequent in the summer.These are the most common external factories that concluded by Huadong. If you have other questions, welcome to contact us.

How to prevent chickadee and osprey conductor failure?

There is no doubt that conductor failure will bring inconvenience to our life. But how to prevent osprey conductor failure? What can we do to reduce chickadee conductor failure?

osprey conductor and chickadee conductor prevent

First of all, installation of conductor should be standardized. We need to reduce external damage at the beginning use. Generally speaking, the regular inspection to chickadee conductor is necessary. On the other hand, Huadong Cable Group advice you do not load operation especially in hot summer. What’s more, you should avoid cable arrangements too dense. Similarly, if the cooling effect of osprey conductor is not good, it will affect the normal heat dissipation of the cable, and may lead to operational failure.

There is a life span for everything, osprey conductor and chickadee conductor are no exception. But Huadong Cable Group believes that if you do good care and maintenance, you can reduce the failure and extend their service life.
