This OLT 72B Overhead Line Tensioner is designed to install single conductor. The bullwheels are canted as per IEEE specifications to prevent unnecessary twisting of the conductor during installation. The bullwheels are outfitted with replaceable Diameter Molded segments. Molding of the segments in this manor eliminates the gaps between segments and creates a smooth cable surface.
48″ Diameter 1045 carbon steel disc brakes, with centralized braking controls, allow for precise tensioning of the conductor.
This unit is at the Hogg Davis equipment yard and is ready for use.
