A leading Chinese manufacturer and global supplier of XLPE HV and EHV power cables, has been using the PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED from SIKORA for quality assurance of high voltage cables in their production lines, since 2017.


For some years, the Chinese company has also been active in the business of manufacturing subsea cables and integrated among others the PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED from the German based SIKORA AG for quality control in its production lines.


Reliability is an important aspect when selling subsea cable and the Chinese company offers certain years of warranty for this type of cable. It relies on the PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED for inspection and sorting from SIKORA. By means of X-ray technology and optical cameras, the system reliably detects contamination inside XLPE pellets as well as on their surface. Contaminated pellets are automatically sorted out.


SIKORA’s PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED installed at a Chinese manufacturer for inspection and sorting of XLPE pellets.

The Chinese manufacturer installed the PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED in the submarine cable production line and equipped the system also in another production line at the beginning of 2021 to ensure high XLPE purity, a high-quality final cable and high customer satisfaction.


Both companies have already been cooperating for more than twenty years in the area of online diameter, wall thickness and eccentricity measurement.


“We are all presently recognizing an interesting evolution, whether regarding the new capabilities with the 5G network, the electrification of cars or the careful use of natural resources for a healthy environment, which includes the substitution of coal and nuclear driven power plants by wind energy. The company is in this respect a pioneer and SIKORA the matching partner,” a statement that is underlined by both the Chinese manufacturer and Wanbin Chen, President of SIKORA CHINA.
