For most lug, cable or rectangular bus connections, handle clamps are used. These handle clamps are available in two sizes and between them fit many different sizes and types of molds. To secure them in place simply tighten the positioning screws.
MOLD CLEANING BRUSH
This soft bristle brush is used to clean the graphite mold without causing damage or undue wear to it.
CONTROL UNIT + LEAD
The CADWELD® PLUS Control Unit initiates the reaction of the metal crucible. The unit includes a 6 foot long, high temperature, control unit lead. The lead attaches to the ignition strip using a custom made, purpose-designed termination clip.
After the termination clip is installed on the ignition strip, the installer pushes and holds the ignition button to start a charging and discharging sequence. Within a few seconds the control unit sends a predetermined voltage to the ignition strip and the reaction is initiated.
Six foot long, high temperature control unit lead, comes complete with quick connect terminals for easy replacement if existing lead is damaged.
MOLD SEALING PUTTY
Used to prevent molten weld metal from leaking out of the mold. When the cable opening becomes worn from heavy use, sealing putty can be used to extend the mold life. 7 strand cable also requires sealing putty as it is prone to leakage around strands.
GEM - GROUND ENHANCEMENT MATERIAL
GEM is a low-resistance, non-corrosive, carbon dust-based material that improves grounding effectiveness, especially in areas of poor conductivity or where ground rods can’t be driven. GEM hardens when set, to become a conductive concrete that is permanent, maintenance-free and will never leach or wash away. GEM does not adversely affect soil and will not leach ions or contaminate ground water.
EARTH IDENTIFICATION TAG
Plastic earth tag, attaches to the main earth for easy identification. Tag is easy to install and UV stabilised for a longer life.
