Ellis secures second Gulf Coast refinery order ten years after first

The world’s leading cable cleat manufacturer, Ellis Patents has secured a repeat specification from a major Gulf Coast refinery ten years after its cleats were used on the refinery’s first substation.

Ellis’ Vulcan+ cable cleats were ordered by Houston, Texas-based Dashiell Corporation to secure two 68kV armored cable circuits, both of which stretch for over two miles and carry power across the refinery to a new process unit.

Kelly Brown, Ellis’ export sales manager, said: “We’re renowned for designing and manufacturing truly world class cable cleats, which always meet the exact specification requirements of any project – no matter where or what type of installation.”

“As a result we deal with a lot of businesses time and again, but to have someone come back over a decade after placing an initial order really does show the quality of the products we make in Yorkshire and export around the world.”

Manufactured in 316L stainless steel, Ellis’ Vulcan+ cleats are designed to provide ultimate corrosion protection, even in the harshest of environments, while also ensuring cables remain secure and operational following a short-circuit incident. They are quick and easy to install, and feature integral LSF zero halogen polymeric liners and base pads that protect and cushion cables during short circuit conditions.
