Pyro MI (mineral insulated) cable is a permanent and dependable wiring cable system for low and medium voltage applications. It is safe for use in hazardous installations and radioactive environments. Pyro MI cable consists of a copper sheath and conductors, with a mineral insulant. The cable can continue to carry current at temperatures in excess of 1000ËšC. If there is a fire it is essential that safety mechanisms continue to operate.
By using Fire survival cable, services including fire pumps, smoke extraction fans, emergency lighting, exit signs and voice communication systems continue uninterrupted. Why risk using just a Fire Rated Cable when you can have the assurity of using a Fire Survival Cable. Is life worth that risk!

The new Product available at Pyrosales is the copper MI cable. These allow the cable to survive exposure to 670°C and withstand temperatures up to 1065°C (2000°F) and 1200°C (2200°F).
The cable is made up of inorganic materials that allow for zero smoke generation, zero fuel contribution, and zero flame spread.
Another important thing to note is that the highly compacted MgO insulation prevents the flow and transmission of explosive gases through the wiring cables.
