GORE® Geophysical Seismic Cables: Power Pairs
Overview
1

In marine geophysical exploration applications, physical space is at a premium — and given the distance to replacement products, reliability is crucial. Whether the explorations include marine surveys or off-shore construction, cables must deliver strong electrical performance and do so efficiently.

GORE Power Pair Cables deliver high performance with reduced dimensions while providing a higher voltage rating than conventional power pairs. Because of their efficient construction, our cables offer considerable weight and space savings, reduced outer diameter and the highest-available performance for streamer cables.

We build the cables using only the highest-quality, multi-layered, concentric and pinhole-free insulations over each conductor. Each cable can operate in wide temperature ranges, and is compatible with streamer fluids and a variety of other floatation media.

Features & Benefits
1

Gore innovates with advanced materials to deliver high performance in products that are often smaller and lighter than competitors’. This is true of our GORE Power Pair Cables, which feature:

  • lowest-available weight and smallest-available outer diameter
  • thin polyester-based multi-layer insulation
  • pinhole-free insulation
  • high abrasion and cut-through resistance

These features provide manufacturers and end users with:

  • longer cable life (and reduced overall costs)
  • excellent electrical performance
  • smaller streamer cable diameter
  • enhanced stripping and bonding
  • high mechanical stability
