33kV 3-Core Gas to Three Single Core XLPE Transition Joint

The TJNT-33 is a 33kV 3-core gas to three single core XLPE transition joint, and is used to join gas insulated cable to extruded dielectric cable on cable repairs or planned cable re-routing of the power Utilities network.

The joint complies with IEC requirements.

The joint offers quick assembly times and its compact size reduces civil works requirements – this is a significant advantage, particularly in congested cities and sites.
