Title: Bare copper wire (2)

5 Tips to Consider before using the Bare Copper
Copper wires are the core electrical component of
any circuit. The copper components are the
lifeline of machines that we all see around us.
Be it the high speed motors used in the most
sophisticated industries or the simple hand fan
running in your living room. State-of-the-art
gadgets like computers, shuttle crafts and
vehicles all use copper in some form or the
other. The process extracts copper in the purest
form and fall under the category of ASTM
Bare copper wires are usually rated according to
the woulding layout. Bare copper wound in
concentric layout is B-8, Solid lay is B-258 and
the tempered bare copper wires fall under the
rating of ASTM B-1, B-2 and B-3 respectively. The
bare copper wires are available mostly in 14
through 1000 MCM and are usually tempered in the
form of three categories. They are
Soft drawn Medium-hard drawn and Hard drawn
We tell you 5 tips to keep in mind before using
the bare copper wires-
1. Check the grade before stripping
Two grades of copper wires may look the same, but
have totally different properties. This might
render your electrical application useless.
Always read the instruction manual provided by
the manufacturer.
2. Make Sure Your Size meets the exact
Requirements of the Machine-
Bare copper wires come in variable sizes. You
must ensure that the standard wire gauges are
used to calibrate the wire diameter before using
them in a machine. The best thing about the bare
copper wires is that they can be used with every
kind of electrical appliances. Some drilling
boards have to be tagged with only the standard
size copper wires.
3. Ensure cleanliness and smoothness-
Copper wires with bare body often subject to
negligence. They might be coated with a lot of
dust and grime. Some wires are used in oil tanks
and might be sticky and could change the
electrical conductivity. Check if the wire is
packaged in a container or is wound in a standard
non-magnetic rod so as to maintain its electrical
conductivity and permittivity.
4. Use the wire only for regulated machines-
Regulated machines are protected from electrical
shocks and damage,. Using bare copper wire for
un-regulated machine or device might lead to
short circuits and cause damage to life and
property. Major fire cases happen if bare copper
wires are not matched with the regulated devices.
Earthing is the major application of bare copper
wires Always ensure if your electrical appliance
is grounded to earth.
5. Replace the damaged wire parts-
Always check for a damaged wire section. It might
be broken or splitting. Ensure that the wire has
a smooth finish and is not dull or dark. A bare
copper wire section will be cut by the only
standard gauge cutter.
