A well-controlled cooling secures that the conductor temperature at the end seal when the insulated core comes out from the pressurized curing tube is low enough and the generation of voids is prevented.
In the Open Water Cooling Circulation OWCS water is pumped from the unpressurized water tank through the heat exchanger to the end of the cooling tube. Thus the cooling operates by a counter-flow method.
In the beginning of the cooling tube, water flows back from the water trap to the unpressurized water tank through a control valve, which controls the amount of water in the water trap. This design ensures that there is always water in the touchdown area, and that the cooling section is always filled with water.
There is a water detector in the neutral tube, which prevents water from entering into the curing section by stopping the water circulation pumps and alarms the line control.
The water circulation unit includes two water circulation pumps, a heat exchanger and the necessary valves.
The piping is made of stainless steel and includes water circulation pipes, valves and flexible hoses.
The unpressurized water tank is not included in the standard delivery (optional). Maillefer will give a main dimension drawing of the tank to the customer. The tank must be equipped with a cover and a ventilation. The water space is separated with a filter mesh, into a clean and a dirty side. By-products can be easily removed from the open tank.
Water circulation unit
The water circulation unit consists of two pieces of water circulation pumps (one is spare), a plate type heat exchanger, necessary valves and instruments.
All these components have been installed on the same frame, which forms one complete unit. The water circulation unit is ready-fitted and completely tested.
Water trap for CCV line
The water trap for CCV line is equipped with a lid including a sight glass, a by-product outlet and a level sensor with a magnetic display controlling the water level height in the water trap.

As the biggest plastics event took place in Germany, the question of where we stand in terms of sustainability has grown in importance. Where to begin? Maillefer looked at different functions within its organization and surprisingly realized that certain progress has been made. Read more
Flexible vulcanized joints (FVJ) also known as flexible factory joints are typically used in extending delivery lengths of extruded subsea cables. Lengths of XLPE insulated cable core are often limited by the capacity of extrusion, degassing or basket lay-up. Factory joints overcome these constraints. Read more

Since two decades, Maillefer has been providing production systems for manufacturing multi-layer composite pipe with diameters ranging from 14 to 32 mm and from 16 to 63 mm. Today, our two model lines, the PCL32 and PCL63 that cover the two size ranges have evolved much. We are closer to 60 m/min, which first presented serious challenges to polymer and aluminum tape suppliers. Read more
