Cables located in the vicinity of cable joints are at an
increased risk of catching fire. Cables running throughout the
plant serve as a pathway for fire spread.
Cable Wrap Protection prevents
further fire damage by protecting adjacent cables. Wraps may
be removed for any necessary cable updates. This standard is
used to apply a protective wrap to power cable joints and power
cables in the vicinity of joints. The intent of this procedure is
to reduce the effects of an arc blast upon power distribution cables
and to reduce the spread of fire after a “flash” event. The EP3990
wrap material is not designed to contain an arc blast. The intent of
the wrap is to mitigate the impact of flame, hot gasses and molten
materials upon surrounding power cables.
