Keywords: Cables, Condition Assessment

Improved System Reliability:

Knowing a cable system’s weaknesses enables owners, asset managers and reliability engineers to be proactive in finding and fixing problems before they cause outages.

Data acquisition:

Measurements with cable in normal service, no over-voltages

No outages or switching operations

Cable life totally unaffected, guaranteed non-destructive


No disconnections required of terminations, no exposure to hot parts


On-line data acquisition performed within 10 minutes per feeder cable


Applicable to all types – PE, XLPE, EPR, PILC and other power cables operating at all voltages - 5kV to 345kV including mixed services.

Analysing and report:

Condition Assessment involves not only testing for partial discharge, but includes measurement of other aging related induced signals. The Lab analyses the data in the frequency and time domain. A detailed report with findings and recommendations will be forwarded to the customer.


Eliminate downtime and potential damage to existing cable systems.

Prioritise capital expenditures by identifying cables for repair, treatment or replacement.

Increase customer satisfaction by finding incipient faults before they become outages.

Triple 5’s On Line Systems, Bench Top and Portable leak detecting equipment will help you locate problem areas in the early stages before they grow too large causing longer down times, higher repair costs and possible harm to employees. Advanced technology is employed to locate leaks in all areas of the boiler including the furnace, waterwall, superheat, reheat, economizer, penthouse, and feedwater heaters.


Martec - PRODUCTS - CableCURE

Independent testing has proved conclusively that CableCURE® fluid improves the performance of all solid-dielectric cables by at least 0.5% per day, with peak performance improvements approaching 350% within two years of treatment. If your cable fails dielectrically after CableCURE treatment, UtilX will refund all of your money for the treated segment or segments of cable that experience failure for up to 20 years after the date of service.


Martec - PRODUCTS - Demagnetisers

The cause of the magnetic fields can be traced to magnetic chucks and couplings, magnetic particle inspections, magnetic probes and mounts, welding and other sources of electrical currents such as static currents or lightning. Demagnetizing is a necessary preventive maintenance procedure for rotating machinery to remove unwanted magnetism and reduce the risk of shaft currents being generated from high residual magnetic fields.
