Air Blown Fiber Optic Cabling

Install Fiber Optic Cable By Air Pressure

Fiber optic cable blowing is a highly efficient and safe method for installing fiber optic cable. It involves a pressurized blowing system that utilizes both pulling force and pushing force to guide the fiber optic cable through the duct like air, ensuring smooth and reliable installation.

Conduit systems allow for the installation of microducts and cables as needed. This provides installers with the flexibility to deploy fiber only when necessary, leading to a reduction in initial investment costs. Planning for future installations ensures the incorporation of the latest fiber optic technology, thus adapting to evolving market demands.

ABF systems offer the advantages of overriding existing networks and conduits, thereby minimizing network disruption and avoiding costly excavation expenses and permits during installation. The ABF cable, designed with a specially crafted low-friction jacket, is lightweight and flexible, allowing for extended jetting length, ultimately contributing to significant time and cost savings.

Blowing Fiber: Push It Forward.

Blowing fiber, also known as jetting, is when a machine is used to float fiber optic cable through the conduit run by using highly pressurized air to push it forward. While the set-up is more extensive, blowing fiber is great for long distances and can go thousands of feet.

It is an efficient way to install fiber optic cable and facilitates future fiber expansion of optical networks.

You Ask, We Answer

Cable installation by using high speed air flow combined with additional mechanical pushing force is called as
“blowing or jetting”. Cable blowing is the process of installation of optical fiber cable into a pre-installed duct. Compressed air is injected in the duct inlet after few hundred meters of cable is pushed into the duct. Compressed air flows at high speed through the duct and along the cable.

Method 1: High air speed blowing
This method requires pushing the cable with tractor mechanism by traction rollers in blowing device for a few hundred meters and then introducing compressed air to make the cable inside the ducts remain in floating condition, which reduces friction between the cable outer surface and duct inner wall by reducing area of contact.

Method 2: Push/Pull (Piston) blowing
In this type of blowing unit, an air-tight piston is attached to the front of the cable. The air pushes this piston, and the piston “pulls” the cable. Installers should be aware that a pulling force exists in piston blowing, and the pulling force shouldn’t cross the maximum cable tension. This method is preferred for larger size ducts (32/40mm and 42/50mm) and in “straight” trajectories to achieve longer cable blowing distance.

blowing method

The procedure for fiber optic cable blowing typically involves the following steps:

  • Prepare the conduit by cleaning it and ensuring that there are no obstructions or damage.
  • Attach the cable to the blowing head and lubricate the cable with a gel to reduce friction.
  • Insert the blowing head and cable into one end of the conduit.
  • Use a blowing machine to introduce pressurized air into the conduit, pushing the cable through the conduit.
  • Monitor the progress of the cable as it is blown through the conduit, checking for any issues such as snags or kinks in the cable.
  • Once the cable has been blown through the entire length of the conduit, use a pulling eye to pull the cable through the last few feet of conduit to ensure that it is properly seated.
  • Perform a continuity test to ensure that the cable is functioning properly.
  • Cable blowing is an efficient method for installing cable in long runs of conduit, and it can be used for both new installations and retrofits.

However, it is important to ensure that the conduit is in good condition and that the cable is properly lubricated and attached to the blowing head to avoid damage to the cable during the installation process.

The installation process and hardware differ from the conventional fiber optic cables. This involves tubing for fiber blowing, special coated fiber or bundles that can be blown into the tubes, specialized hardware for termination and splicing, and a blowing apparatus providing the controlled air stream (or dry nitrogen) essential for blowing fibers into the tubes over several kilometers.

Air blown micro fiber optic cable is a fiber optic cable designed for use in air-blown fiber optic systems.

These systems use compressed air to blow small-diameter fiber optic cables through tubes or ducts, allowing them to be quickly and easily installed without requiring specialized equipment or labor-intensive techniques.

Air-blown micro fiber optic cable typically has a small diameter, less than 1 mm, and is made of a flexible material, such as plastic or rubber. This allows it to be easily blown through tubes or ducts and bent around corners or other obstacles.

Air-blown micro fiber optic cable is commonly used in telecommunications and broadband applications.
