TNFTS – Full Tension Multi Piece Line Splice. Galvanised Steel & Aluminium Alloy for 6/1 or 30/7 ACSR conductors
Full Tension Line Splices are designed for splicing ACSR conductor. The multi piece design holds both the inner steel core, and the outer layers. In some cases filler rods may be needed to bridge the gap between the inner core and the outer strands. The conductor will be returned to full conductivity when spliced with TNFTS.
On ACSR conductors, full tension line splices hold at least 90% of the ultimate tensile strength of the conductor.
Conductors should be scratch brushed and greased properly prior to installation to ensure a long term joint, and never placed closer than 360mm from other fittings. Do not reuse these fittings.
