Regular Tracer Wire (TWU)
Used for open wiring where exposed to the weather and for service entrance below ground. TWU is approved for direct burial. This is the most common form of tracer wire in the Water and Waste Water industry. The reason for this is TWU can also be used to send power to run equipment further down the line.
Copper Clad Tracer Wire
Applications: For location of buried pipes and fibre optic cables where high strength, flexibility, and direct burial is required.
Copper clad steel is lighter, stronger, costs less, and due to little or no scrap value has a lower theft threat than copper, yet retains the same signal capacity.
Copper Clad is often used to save money, however, it is often not used because you cannot send electricity down the line to power equipment. It is strictly used for tracing pipe.
Tracer wire is installed in directional boring, plow-in, or open-trench applications. Designed for directional boring, plow-in, or open trench digging.
Water Meter Wire
For Interconnecting of public utility equipment. Often used as a communication wire between outdoor equipment.
