Bajrang Wire Products (India) Pvt Ltd – Manufacturers of High Carbon Steel Wire from India


ACSR Core Wire is a galvanized steel core wire which can be either single or stranded and is used to reinforce stranded aluminium conductors that are used in the transmission and distribution of power. ACSR is a type of high-capacity, high-strength stranded conductor. The outer strands are high-purity aluminium, chosen for its good conductivity, low weight, low cost, resistance to corrosion and decent mechanical stress resistance. The centre strand is steel for additional strength to help support the weight of the conductor.

Steel is of higher strength than aluminium which allows for increased mechanical tension to be applied on the conductor. Steel also has lower elastic and inelastic deformation (permanent elongation) due to mechanical loading (e.g. wind and ice) as well as a lower coefficient of thermal expansion under current loading. These properties allow ACSR to sag significantly less than all-aluminium conductors. The ACSR conductors are mainly used in distribution and transmission lines due to their high tensile strength, economical design, less weight, suitable for medium and long periods with fewer supports, and good properties of sag and high voltage overhead lines.
