Implosive Splicing: A Reliable and Efficient Solution for High-Voltage Conductors
Our implosive splicing products for high-voltage conductors are assembled with explosives instead of hydraulic pressing. This implosive splice method offers significant advantages such as high compression quality and long service life for high voltage conductors, quick and easy installation process, and reduced labor costs. It provides a reliable and efficient solution for splicing transmission power lines, regardless of the conductor type or whether the power lines are dry or greased. The technology is suitable for all standard line types.

Implosion Jointing Technology: A Reliable and Durable Alternative to Conventional Compression Method
The implosion jointing technology was originally developed at Raufoss in the 1960s. Since then, the product has been widely used for many decades and has established a reputation for reliability and durability, particularly in the challenging Nordic climates. The implosion jointing method used replaces the conventional compression method that is most commonly used in the market, resulting in superior compression quality and longer service life.
