Drum reeling and trailing rubber cables are electrical power cables used for mobile equipment like stackers, large excavators and reclaimers. The drum reeling and trailing cable enable the mobile machinery to move around without being disconnected from the electric power supply. Drum reeling and trailing cables are heavily insulated and protected to ensure that they can withstand the demanding workloads required.
A cable reeling drum can automatically reel and unreel a trailing cable that is designed to travel around with the mobile apparatus. There are three types of rubber cable reeling drums: semi-parallel, monospiral and parallel. While the monospiral and parallel drum can be used for all size and length of cable, the semi-parallel drum can only be used for a small cable length of up to 250 metres. The parallel drum is able to hold the longest trailing cable length of 3000 metres, with the monospiral drum able to contain 400 metres of cable. To ensure that the flexible trailing cables are suited for the different drums, choosing the correct cable size is essential.
Drum reeling and trailing rubber cables have to be specially designed for outdoor installation, as they should be UV and weather resistant. In Singapore where the climate is incredibly humid, the drum reeling and trailing cables must be able to withstand the humidity even when left in the open-air. As the cables will undergo tremendous tensile and torsion load, they have to be sturdy and resistant to mechanical stress like abrasions. Rubber cables should also be unaffected by heat, chemicals and oil. For special conditions, there are drum reeling and trailing cables that can be used in temperatures down to -40°C.
