Importance Of Cable Lubricants In Cable Pulling

August 17, 2022

Cables are a pivotal part of the utility supply infrastructure in a city. Without the overhead and underground cable networks, it won't be possible to ensure an uninterrupted supply of utilities like electricity and optic fiber internet.


A wide range of sophisticated tools and equipment are used by contractors to pull the cables with the right tension and strength between overhead poles. Like overhead cables, a lot of friction is generated even while pulling underground cables through conduits and duct banks.


Too much friction can damage the cables and lead to breakage. This is why using top-quality cable lubricants is highly recommended. AMAC Equipment Limited is a top supplier of utility supply tools and products, including lubricants. Our extensive selection of lubricants greatly helps contractors in cable pulling.
