Stainless Steel Cable Ties Replace Plastic Ties in Harsh Environment

Red Band-it Tie

BAND-IT CABLE TIES SHINE AT PRECIOUS METALS REFINING, SMELTING COMPLEX

The conditions in the refinery complex are unique due to its highly-corrosive atmosphere, as even 304 stainless steel is subject to rust after an extended period. Therefore, the specific requirement was for high-strength, durable strapping solutions to cater for these challenging conditions. Previously the company was using plastic cable ties for the facility’s electric cables, which proved not durable in the harsh operating environment.

Over a five-month period, Banding & ID Solutions Africa has been upgrading the tying system used on the cables at the refinery complex using a mixture of reusable Band-It cable ties. To date, it has supplied about 10,000 reusable Band-It cable ties to the company.

 

Band-Fast Aces the Test BAND-IT TIES OUTLAST PLASTIC TIES

The straps are expected to last up to five years before they need to be replaced, which is significantly longer than the six-month lifespan of the plastic cable ties used previously. In addition to BAND-IT Ties being well-suited to the application at hand, the contractor was impressed that they ties were easy to install using a ratchet-operated Bantam strapping tool.
