Electrification is a key driver in the global energy transition, and the demand for decarbonization is only accelerating this trend. With aluminium solutions for electrical use, such as tubular conductors and flat wires, we can contribute and create new value for your business.
Aluminium is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity; temperature differences on different sides of an aluminium profile equalize quickly. Aluminium is also light, compared with competing materials, making installation easier. An aluminium conductor, for example, weighs half as much as a copper conductor with the same conductivity.
As a fully recyclable material as well as an excellent electricity conductor, aluminium helps to support the electrification and decarbonization trend. Busbars and rod or connectivity tubes in aluminium are:
Aluminium systems require little or no maintenance, and normally do not require expensive surface treatments or coatings.
“We see there is a need to be flexible in delivering electrical tubes, especially when there are expansion projects going on in the field. With good communication we make it easy to do business together,” says Thorsten Weis of Hydro.
Busbars used to be flat strips of copper that panel builders bought and installed in low-voltage switchboards. Now we have aluminium horizontal-profiled busbars that connect vertically with a wider range of current ratings. This is good for OEMs.Read more
One of the most useful characteristics of aluminium is its formability, and one way to form the metal into the shape you want is through bending. Some aluminium alloys and tempers are better suited for bending than others. This is what you need to know to choose the one that's right for you.Read more
