components have passed the highest levels of rigorous testing to assure reliable operation. The testing
protocols were developed in consultation with the major component manufacturers, third-party testing
laboratories, and industry experts. Component manufacturers including Hubbell, Cooper
Power Systems, 3M, Richards Manufacturing, Prysmian,
Tyco Electronics, DSG_Canusa and others agree that Novinium injection technology
is in harmony with the design requirements of the components in which they are installed.
Novinium provides an unprecedented lifetime warranty – when installed by a certified craftsperson, certified
components will provide reliable service for the life of the rejuvenated cable – 40 years for cables
treated with Ultrinium™ fluid and 20-25 years for cables treated with Perficio™ fluid. This warranty
is far superior to any warranties provided by the component manufacturers. To learn more about Novinium’s
industry leading warranty visit
The certification process begins with ANSI C119.4 testing at NEETRAC to assure outstanding thermal and
electrical performance of the injection adaptor and the compression connector assembly. To learn more
about NEETRAC visit www.neetrac.gatech.edu.
Novinium testing does not stop with the required number of thermal cycles … we doubled the ANSI C119.4
requirement! Utilizing a patented circumferential swaging process, Novinium technology provides an electrical
connection that is superior to conventional crimping methods. To see a copy of the test report click here. We went back to NEETRAC and even tested (click
here to see the test report) our terminations and splices at 110°C and 130°C – still the
performance was outstanding.
Next, the patented Novinium injection adaptor compression connector assembly (IA assembly) is installed
by skilled craftsperson in every
component. The entire assembly is sliced in half with state-of-the-art abrasive water jet technology.
The dimensions are measured and examined in detail by a licensed professional engineer. The IA assembly
must fit well within the conductive insert, and must fall within the specified diameter range of the
A life-size template of the certified component is drafted. This template is utilized by the
field craftsperson who installs each
component. That’s right – each person who installs patented and patent pending Novinium technology is
trained and certified to the task. The template provides both pre-swage and post-swage dimensions. These
dimensions allow the craftsperson to “measure twice and cut once” and then lay the finished work alongside
the template to assure the final dimensions are within the required tolerances. This is a more rigorous
approach to quality than the industry standard method. Instead of relying upon measurements made with
a ruler, which are subject to multiple errors, intermediate and final quality is assured with an unambiguous
comparison to the design requirement.
