Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH)


What does it mean?
LSZH
LSZH simply translates to Low Smoke Zero Halogen and refers to the behavior of
chemical compounds when combusted - specifically the quantity of smoke generated
and the toxicity of the emissions. Tricab uses only materials generating less than 0.5%
HCL emissions
Halogens - What are they?
Halogens are a group of five elements comprising; Fluorine, Chlorine, Bromine, Iodine
and Astatine.

Halogens - and the effect of combustion


In their basic form, Halogens are very toxic, strong oxidizers and very chemically
reactive. In the event of combustion, LSZH and non LSZH cables behave in very
different ways, as indicated below.

Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH)


What does it mean?
What is the difference between LSZH and non LSZH cables?
LSZH cables have a zero Halogen content, emit no toxic fumes, generate very little smoke and produce no corrosive or
caustic acids. LSZH cables are therefore ideally suited for all marine applications where personnel safety and protection
of valuable equipment are of paramount importance.
Non LSZH cables, or Halogenated Cables, are typically manufactured
from thermoplastic compounds, such as PVC. On combustion, these
compounds generate highly toxic fumes that cause severe irritation to
the eyes, nose, mouth, throat and lungs. Increased concentrations are
considered fatal to humans.
They also generate large volumes of dense black smoke that blocks
visibility and severely disrupts evacuation procedures. The smoke and
fumes can also lead to suffocation from smoke inhalation. A one metre
length of burning cable that contains 0.85Kg of PVC will completely
obscure a room of 1000m3 with black toxic smoke in less than five
minutes.
When combusted, Halogens combine with moisture to form
Hydrochloric Acid. This extremely corrosive acid is potentially deadly
to humans and always causes extensive property damage. Acids of this
nature aggressively attack electrical switchboards, motors, fixtures,
furnishings, floor coverings, paint surfaces etc. In many cases the
effects of acid corrosion after a fire are much more severe than the
actual fire damage itself.

Cut at required length and remove.

Cut section and slide towards the end of the


conductor* (allow 3/16 inch clearance)

Place standard lug at the end of conductor

Gently push both lug and section until they


meet the jacket.
Cut and remove section.

Compress lug using hexagonal die and hydraulic crimper

*Stripping at 1 inch maximum lengths is recommended. For longer


lengths cutting and stripping in 1 inch sections is advised.

Installation Recommendation
CORRECTION FACTORS FOR CABLE CURRENT RATING
Bunching of cable
Where more than six cables are bunched together and
operating at their maximum capacity, a correction factor of
0.85 should be applied (assuming insufficient free air
circulation). Single core cables are exempted from this
requirement
Ambient temperature
The maximum current ratings in this catalog are based on an
ambient temperature of 45C. For other ambient temperatures,
the correction factors shown below should be applied.

0.94 0.82 0.74
110*
1.31 1.19 1.14 1.07 0.93 0.84
* Shorepower cable only

The installation of cables across expansion joints in any


structure should be avoided. Where this is not feasible,
a loop of cable sufficient to accommodate the expansion of
the joint should be provided. The internal radius of the loop is
to be at least 12 times the overall diameter of the cable.
Cables should be installed away from heat sources as far as
practicable. If this cannot be avoided and there is possibility
of damage to the cable, then suitable shields, insulation or
other protective measures should be installed.
Cables are not to be coated or painted with materials
which may adversely affect their jacket or fire performance.
Cables should be installed away from sources of mechanical
damage, as far as is practicable. If this cannot be avoided the
cables should be protected with suitable metallic casing.
SECURING OF CABLES
Cables should be effectively supported and secured using
flame retardant clips, saddles, or straps. Special care should
be taken to avoid any damage caused by excessive
tensioning during installation.

INSTALLATION

The distance between fixing points should be selected


according to cable type and probability of vibration, but should
not exceed 18 inches.

Cable runs should be fixed in straight lines as far as


practicable. The minimum bending radius for cable should be
selected in accordance with the table below.

Where cables are installed below cable trays, ladder, or


supports, the fixing distance for securing the cable should be
in accordance with the table below.

Current-Carrying Capacity
IEEE 45 TABLE 25
The table on the previous page is extracted from IEEE 45 Table 25 except that values for 75C for type T insulated cables and 100C
for types S and P insulated cables are not included. Instead, values adjusted for 40C and 50C ambient have been included in
addition to the values at 45C ambient.
The information below is the the adjustment factors and notes associated with Table 25 from IEEE 45.
Ampacity adjustment factors for more than three conductors in a cable with no load diversity:

NOTES
1Current ratings are for ac or dc.
2For service voltage 1001 V to 5000 V, Type T, T/N, LSE, and LSX should not be used.
3Current-carrying capacity of four-conductor cables, where one conductor does not act as a normal current-carrying
conductor (e.g., grounded neutral or grounding conductor), is the same as three-conductor cables listed in Table 25.
4Table 25 is based on an ambient temperature of 45C and maximum conductor temperature not exceeding:
75C for type T insulated cables, 90C for types T/N, X, E, LSE, and LSX insulated cables, and 100C for types
S and P insulated cables.
5If ambient temperatures differ from 45C, the values shown in Table 25 should be multiplied by the following
factors:

6The current-carrying capacities in this table are for marine installations with cables arranged in a single bank per
hanger and are 85% of the ICEA calculated values [see Note 7]. Double banking of distribution-type cables should
be avoided. For those instances in which cable must be double banked, the current-carrying capacities in Table 25
should be multiplied by 0.8.
7The ICEA calculated current capacities of these cables are based on cables installed in free air, that is, at least one
cable diameter spacing between adjacent cables. See IEEE Std 835-1994.
8For cables with maintained spacing of at least 1 cable diameter apart, the values from this table may be divided
by 0.85.

comply with either Option A or Option B requirements:
Option A:
-The total smoke release shall be 95m2 or less
-The peak smoke release rate shall be 0.25m2/s or less
Option B:
-The total smoke release shall be 150m2 or less
-The peak smoke release rate shall be 0.40m2/s or less

MIL-DTL-24643B AND NEMA WC57 PT7 HALOGEN AND ACID GAS EMISSIONS
In this test the halogen content is determined by X-ray fluorescence or analyses of the chemical compositions of all
ingredients used.
The acid gas emitted by the cable is absorbed by deionized water in 4 flasks. The cable is heated up in a furnace. On
the completion of the heating cycle, the acid content of the fluids in the absorber flasks is titrated. The total titrate
indicates the total soluble acids.
