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:

  • Easy to bend, yet strong, with no risk of cracks or breakage 
  • Easy to fabricate and tailor to customer specifications
  • Available in specific alloys for the highest possible connectivity
  • Available in long lengths
  • Resistant to corrosion
  • Durable 

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.
