RSCC Starts Groundbreaking for Three State-Of-The-Art Irradiation Units
In a further commitment to be technology leader and remain in its position as the Premier Specialty Cable Company, RSCC has commenced groundbreaking for the construction of three state-of-the-art electron beam irradiation units at its East Granby, Connecticut manufacturing facility. These new irradiation units, in addition to two existing units, will position RSCC as having the largest cable irradiation capabilities in North America.
The units will be primarily used to increase capacity and quality assurance to our Exane ® line of oil rig and transportation cable. Exane® has been the flagship product for RSCC for over 25 years: over one billion feet has been installed without a reported field failure. The irradiation process is used in the manufacture of Exane® to produce its proprietary cross-linked insulation, making it impervious to harsh industrial conditions.
The new irradiation units are scheduled to be operational by January 1, 2005.
