No drums should be stored, one above
Drums should be stored preferably on
a plane ground without having any projected hard stones above the
ground surface. The drums should be stored preferably in the shed.
Drums should be stored and kept in
such a way, that bottom cable does not get damaged.
Drum should be rotated only in the
direction mark on the drum.
While laying the cable in a trench
the cable end should be pulled with pulling eye only after
mounting the drums on the jacks.
100% drums shall be checked for
continuity and cross continuity test to ensure that there is no
internal damage to cable during transportation.
Insulation resistance shall be
measured with 500 V megger between the cores and all the cores to
Where the cable is to be joined with
an existing cable, the sequence of cores of the two ends to be in
the opposite direction i.e. if at one end it is the clockwise
direction, at the other end it should be in anticlockwise. This is
necessary to avoid the crossing of cores while jointing. This will
also decide the in which the cable is to be pulled.
The maximum bending radius for cable
should not be less than 12 X overall diameter. Wherever possible
25% higher value should be adopted.
