Virtually unbreakable – thanks to basalt fibre
HRADIL Spezialkabel present compatible push cables with a BFP pushrod that are virtually unbreakable - at an almost unbeatable price for this type of cable. HRADIL pushrod cables are suitable for most sewer inspection CCTV systems used around the world.
The BFK pushrod used by HRADIL to implement the push function is made from a newly developed, high-tech basalt fibre reinforced material. Thanks to this, the HRADIL push cable features a significantly smaller diameter, is more flexible and lighter in weight and offers superior push properties, narrower bending radii and better sliding characteristics compared to conventional push cables. Another advantage is that, owing to the lower weight and smaller cable diameter, the cable drum will accommodate longer cables.
Adjustable degree of stiffness
We saved the best for last, however: In contrast to pushrod cables carrying a single BFP pushrod at the cable centre, HRADIL’s cable engineers have come up with a design where the BFP pushrods reside in the outer layer and have been twisted together with the entire cable assembly. The BFP pushrods are available in different diameters, so that, depending on which BFP pushrod diameter is chosen, the stiffness of the push cable can be optimally adapted to the circumstances at the site. The highest stiffness is obtained with larger BFP pushrods. Where heavy CCTV cameras are used and long distances need to be covered this can be an important advantage. In the case of narrow bending radii and lighter camera equipment, smaller BFC pushrods and their greater flexibility may prove to be of greater value.
