5.1.2 Communication/Vented Cable Maintenance

Proper storage of the Communication/Vented Cable is very important. The cables are shipped with the end capped; the cap should be retained, and used to seal the connection when not in use and during periods of storage. For Vented Cables, the Gore vent cap on the end of the vent tube at surface should never be removed.

It is also recommended the Vented Cable be stored on the spool it was received on (for longer lengths). This protects the Cable and avoids the vent tube from being kinked.



Before the Vented Cables are shipped, the vent tubes are blown dry with nitrogen gas, and capped, to ensure no moisture during transport.


To ensure the vent tube is dry before deployment or storage, Solinst offers a Vented Cable Blowout Fitting that allows you to blow nitrogen gas through the tube. Contact Solinst for more details.

Cleaning the connection ensures a proper seal. A cotton swab can be used to clear any moisture or debris from the connector.
