BFOU Cable Supplier
EUTEX International the leading cable supplier of electrical cables worldwide, offering full-service turnkey solutions that are accurate, reliable, and of the highest quality. We provide durable NEK 606 cables that are DNV and ABS certified, including BFOU cables.
BFOU are armored and sheathed cables designed for the most demanding marine and offshore harsh environments applications. These cables are also used for Telecommunication, instrumentation, fixed installation cables in various electromechanical and electronic equipment, emergency, and critical systems as well as electric distribution and lighting systems.
Due to its’ halogen-free and flame-Retardant features, it will not create corrosive gases and prevents the fire from spreading. Protects human life and equipment, during a fire and helps to extinguish the fire. Low smoke density reduces the risk of suffocation and keeps visibility around the fire zone. These cables are produced according to NEK 606 standards. EUTEX International is proud to be a NEK 606 BFOU cable supplier.
It is a tinned stranded copper wire conductor, fire-proof mica tape that acts as a fire barrier over the conductor to provide uninterrupted power or signals during a fire situation, HF-EPR or XLPE insulation, and halogen-free thermosetting compound SHF2 or SHF Mud sheathed.
BFOU cables are constructed with a Tinned Copper Wire Braid (TCWB) armoring that serves as a protective cover to reduce the risk of the cable getting pinched or damaged. The use of Tinned copper armoring allows the cable to better resist humidity, high temperatures, and wet environments.
Also, since the material has been made of copper, it allows the armored to be used as ground when it’s necessary. This can be attained by collecting all the braiding armored around the cable, which will give you a reduced ground on power cables. The braiding capability allows the cable to be flexible and considerably lighter from an installation point of view especially when the weight is an important factor mainly in the offshore platform.
As a certified, reliable NEK606 BFOU cable supplier, we ensure the quality and durability of our cables and all our accessories. Our BFOU cables can be used in a variety of harsh marine applications, such as on offshore platforms, mud pumps, oil rigs, and drilling rigs.
