Remove lead (Pb) sheaths with help of fork.

 For all cable sizes Carefully mark & cut Pb Sheath. 
(Attention not cut insulation!)
 Avoid damage of cable
core underneath Pb

 Avoidance of cable

Cable straightening process
Brugg Best practices

• SET HEATING TIME according to conductor size
(Table guide included in all mounting instructions)

• PERFORME THE PUSH BACK OF INSULATION (use
Brugg push on devices) and fit the cables with the
straight Angle.

• WHEN CABLES COOLS DOWN remove the angles and
lay the cables on wooden supports

Brugg best practices for peeling and
grinding

• Use peeling tools to remove the cable outer semi
conductive layer – Correct imperfections with piece of
glass

• POLISHING OF XLPE (XLPE diameter reduction not more
than 0.5 – 0.7 mm)

• Use proper sequence and grain size of corundum cloth

• To obtain optimum SMOOTHNESS OF INSULATION slightly
heat the cable insulation after grinding.

Brugg best practices – Clean insulations

• Avoid
contamination
while preparing
other cables

• Wrap plastic foils
provided with the
installation kits

• Cable preparation
