Kerite Offers Superior Wet Performance Cable to the Utility Industry

Design allows for full immersion of the cable core in water

Kerite, a leading manufacturer of high quality insulated utility and industrial power cable, now offers a superior "wet design" for harsh utility operating conditions. This wet design is part of the standard Kerite utility cable construction. Utilities deal with flooded vaults, water soaked conduits and high water tables throughout the distribution system. These conditions can shorten the life of cables that rely on water-blocking mechanisms to protect the cable core. Kerite's design allows for full immersion and operation of the cable core in water.


The proprietary compound used in current Kerite insulation has been successfully tested for over 50 years and the basic system has been refined and continuously proven over the last 150. Kerite cable was relied upon during the initial construction of the Panama Canal in 1908 and today Kerite cables cross rivers, bays, and connect islands and offshore platforms -- from the Great Lakes to the Caribbean, the Far East and the Persian Gulf.
