FurseWELD exothermic welding is a cost-efficient method of making large or small numbers of high quality electrical connections.
FurseWELD is a simple, self-contained system that uses the high temperature reaction of powdered copper oxide and aluminum, within a mould, to form permanent electrical connections.
Typical applications include
Earthing for power plants and substations
Transmission and power distribution lines
The FurseWELD system
Requires no external power or heat source
Creates high quality electrical connections
Can be used safely with minimum training
Can be used for over 45 connection configurations
FurseWELD connections have several advantages
Tolerant to repeated fault currents
Does not loosen
Excellent corrosion resistance
Most FurseWELD connections have at least twice the cross-sectional area of the conductors being joined, and an equivalent or greater current carrying capacity. Corrosion resistance is exceptional because of the very high copper content (> 90%) of the alloy.
