The tension clamp for OPPC is used to connect terminal support, tension support, splice support and support of angle greater than 25°.
The tension clamp for OPPC includes: inner preformed armor rods, outer tension preformed rods, a thimble clevis, a clevis, two anchor shackles.
Inner preformed armor rods: Made of aluminum-clad steel, with particulate grit applied to increase friction. The terminals bend toward outside to keep cable form abrasion.
Outer tension preformed rods: Made of aluminum-clad steel, the individual rod assembled into groups to increase the strength of tension clamp in the condition of decreasing the stress imposed on cable.
