Application of Cables in Natural Gas Transmission Equipment

Application of Cables in Natural Gas Transmission Equipment

1. Scene Introduction

With the transformation of the global energy structure, natural gas, as an efficient and environmentally friendly energy source, has been increasing its share in the energy consumption structure year by year. Natural gas transmission as an important link in the natural gas industry chain, its safety and stability is of great significance to guarantee energy supply and promote economic development. As an important component connecting the transmission equipment and system, the performance of natural gas transmission equipment cables directly affects the efficiency and safety of natural gas transmission. Therefore, the development of a set of professional and efficient natural gas transmission equipment cable solutions is of great significance to ensure the safe and stable operation of natural gas transmission.

2. The pain point analysis

In the process of natural gas transportation, equipment cables face many challenges. First of all, the transmission environment is complex and variable, the cable needs to withstand high temperature, high pressure, high humidity and other harsh environments, while also resisting chemical corrosion and mechanical damage. Secondly, the cable needs to transmit a large amount of data and control signals to ensure accurate control and stable operation of the conveyor equipment. In addition, the safety and reliability of cables are also important considerations in the natural gas transmission process. However, traditional cable products are often difficult to meet these requirements, there are unstable performance, easy to damage and other problems, which bring potential safety hazards to natural gas transmission.

3.The natural gas transmission equipment on the cable requirements

Natural gas transmission equipment on the cable requirements mainly include the following aspects:

Weather resistance: the cable should be able to operate stably for a long time under the harsh environment of high temperature, high pressure, high humidity, etc., without performance degradation or damage.
Corrosion resistance: the cable should be able to resist chemical corrosion, to ensure that it will not fail due to corrosion during transportation.
Electrical properties: the cable should have good electrical conductivity and insulation to ensure the stability and reliability of power transmission.
Mechanical properties: the cable should be able to withstand mechanical stress, including tensile, bending and vibration, etc., to ensure that it is not easy to be damaged in the transmission process.
Data transmission capacity: the cable should be able to efficiently transmit data and control signals to ensure accurate control and stable operation of the transmission equipment.

4. Natural gas transmission equipment cable certification standards

Natural gas transmission equipment cables need to comply with a series of international and domestic certification standards, such as IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) standards, national cable standards. These standards strictly regulate the electrical performance, mechanical performance, environmental adaptability and safety performance of cables to ensure the safe and reliable operation of cables in the natural gas transmission process.
