Types of Joints and Terminations
The joint is considered to be the weakest connect in the system but the whole reliability of a distribution system depends on it. Thus, jointing accessories and methods have an significant and critical role despite their comparative low value in the overall investment.
The following kinds of joints and terminations are used:
- Cast iron moulded,
- Epoxy resin type,
- Heat shrinkable,
- Cold shrinkable, and
- 'Push on' type.
The cold shrinkable, heat shrinkable, and 'push on' type joints and terminations do not require any setting time and could be taken into service immediately.
