Manufacturing Cable Since the 1980s
Heatsense Cables Limited are specialist high performance, extreme environment cable manufacturers.
The company has been manufacturing cables in Greater Manchester since the early 1980s. Alongside an extensive range of standard & specialist cables, Heatsense also offer a bespoke cables design and development service.
We are a technology leader in high-temperature fluoropolymer extrusion and materials used in the manufacture of specialist high-performance cables that operate in extreme environments. Our range covers thermocouple cables, extension wires, high flex braided, equipment wires & cables, multicore cables, micro coaxial cables, braided cables and fine wires & stranding. Our cables can be manufactured to be resistant to flame, oils, chemicals, cryogenic and even operate in ultra-high vacuum (UHV) which can be made radiation resistant for nuclear.
We can solve your high-performance cable solution needs
Heatsense is AS/EN 9100:2018 (Rev. D), ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 Accredited. We are now also fully Cyber Security Plus certified and have been awarded F4N (Fit for Nuclear Status) by the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre.
Our team have the versatility, knowledge and expertise to manufacture cabling for highly specialised uses. Contact us today to discuss your requirements.
Our industry leading team of cable designers use a very broad range of insulation materials, which allow us to manufacture cables that a resistant to heat, cold, fluid, particle ingress and radiation. Nuclear, Automotive Aerospace, Oil & Gas and Medical industries, to name but a few.
Our insulation materials include PFA, FEP, PTFE, ETFE, PEEK, EFGLA, Kevlar, Kapton, Mica, Quartz, Glass & Ceramic Fibre, Cross-Linked & Halogen Free Materials.
Cable Manufacturer FAQs
Manufacturing processes used to protect electrical and signal cables used in extreme heat and radioactive environments include braiding, extruding, and coating with heat-resistant materials. The specific process used depends on the requirements of the application.
Braided cables are able to withstand high temperatures and radiation because the braiding provides a layer of protection against heat and radiation damage. The braided structure also helps to prevent mechanical damage from abrasion and flexing.
Materials commonly used for extruding coatings on cables for extreme heat and radioactive environments include polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE), and fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP). These materials have excellent temperature and chemical resistance properties.
Cable manufacturers like Heatsense test for resistance to extreme heat and radiation using a variety of methods, including thermal cycling, radiation exposure (carried out by a specialist partner), and mechanical testing. Testing is typically done in accordance with industry standards to ensure accurate and reliable results.
The lifespan of cables used in extreme heat and radioactive environments depends on a number of factors, including the materials used, the level of exposure to heat and radiation, and the application requirements. Cable manufacturers can provide guidance on the expected lifespan of cables for specific applications.
All Heatsense cables can be manufactured to order, therefore can be customized, combined into multi-strand configurations and braided into a single large cable to meet any specific application requirements for extreme environments. We are constantly innovating with our cables and can work with you to develop a customized solution that meets your unique needs.
