The Cable blowing machine comprising of an air box, Cable pusher and Hydraulic Power Pack has been designed to provide an effective and safe method of fiber optic cable installation. The system installs fiber optic cable of 8 – 32 mm overall diameter at up to 90m/min into pre-installed ducts, employing the viscous drag compressed air principle. The compressed air is fed into the duct via a venturi principle, and the hydraulically powered cable feed system controls the fiber optic cable.

The optical fiber cable blowing system comes mounted on a light weight Frame for ease of site maneuverability and is powered by a hydraulic supply system. The unit is supplied with a 1-1/2”BSP for connecting air supply hose (not supplied). The air supply hose should be 25mm (min) bore or more.

The unit is supplied with 2 x hydraulic hoses x 3 meters for connecting between the optical fiber cable blowing machine and hydraulic power pack (or hydraulic power source).
