Seamless bus tube is a round, hollow material manufactured to a specific outside diameter (O.D.) and wall thickness. It is produced to meet specific end-user requirements.
This shape is used for station bus, open or enclosed, and for the high-current bus of outdoor substations for distribution voltages, as well as for 600 volt bus for industrial plants.
Rectangular shapes are the all-purpose rigid conductor for switchgear, control apparatus and busways. The use of multiple bar bus can provide a large surface area for heat dissipation. Joints and taps are easily made by bolting or welding; it is also easy to make off-sets and 90-degree bends.
Seamless bus pipe is an extruded tubular product used to convey electricity. It is manufactured to a “nominal,” not actual, inside diameter. The wall thickness is described by a “schedule.”
The universal angle bus conductor is used for moderate-size outdoor substations at distribution voltages. Center line grooves make it easy to locate bolt holes. The bus can be mounted directly on insulator caps since both legs are of uniform thickness.
