Elastimold Elbows, cable joints and terminations are designed for application on XLP, EPR and
other solid dielectric insulated power cables. These components are constructed of molded elas-
tomer and rely on an interference fit with the cable insulation diameter in order to maintain proper
dielectric strength, creep path integrity and a water seal. Elastimold components are available in a
wide range of sizes in order to accommodate a variety of cable insulation diameters.
Selection of size-sensitive components requires determining the cable insulation diameter.
This can be done in several ways:
A. Refer to the cable manufacturer’s spec sheet for dimensions.
B. Measure the cable.
C. If the cable conforms to AEIC or ICEA standards and is:
1. 15kV, 175 mil wall thickness, use the table on page 34.
2. 15kV, 220 mil wall thickness, use the table on page 35.
3. 25kV, 260 mil wall thickness, use the table on page 35.
4. 35kV, 345 mil wall thickness, use the table on page 36.
After the cable insulation diameter minimum and maximum has been determined:
1. Locate the W table indicated in the part number selection chart.
2. Complete the ordering information by selecting and inserting the symbol (given in the
W table) into the part number.

To complete the information required to order a K655LR-
W0X elbow for use on standard AEIC 1000 kcmil com-
pressed stranding aluminum 25kV cable with .260 inch
thick insulation wall:
A. Determine that the insulation diameter (for AEIC
cable in the table on pages 34-36) is 1.645 – 1.770
inches.
B. For this elbow, the part number selection chart on
page 11 indicates to use table W7 for elbow sizing
and table X6 for connector sizing.
C. From table W7 the symbol for W is .
D. From table X6 the symbol for X is
