Illustrated, black and yellow double armored submarine cable

GJLTTM, 15-ton DAL is a double layer armored, loose tube cable for submarine installation where high protection is required.

This submarine cable is based on a hermetically sealed stainless tube. Inside the tube the fibers are free to move in a thixotropic water blocking compound. The steel tube is protected by a polyethylene sheath. Outside the sheath there are two layers of galvanized steel wires. The steel wires are flooded in bitumen.

The complete cable is wrapped with a layer of polypropylene yarns or a polyethylene sheath.

The steel wire reinforcement provides reliable mechanical protection, enabling installation and operation during rough conditions.

High packing density of the fibers is provided by the loose tube technique. This permits a small outer diameter and easy handling of the cable.

The fibers are easy to identify due to color and colored yarns.
