They can be used with any of Flexicon’s 10 liquid tight conduit systems making them suitable for many arduous & demanding applications. For complete dust proof ignition protection, they can be used with Flexicon’s anti-static LTPAS and LTPPUAS ranges, which have been tested to comply with clause 7.4 of EN60079-0.
The new Increased Safety fittings are manufactured from nickel-plated brass offering superior corrosion resistance and aesthetics. Unlike the LTP EXD glands, the LTP EXE fittings do not use a two-part epoxy compound to form a barrier seal so they can be installed in seconds.
Continued Gibson: "Using conduit provides cable protecion for multiple cables so there is no need to use expensive special cable. Equally, a number of cables can be terminated through one fitting so the glanding space & subsequent enclosure size can be reduced."
“Additional cables can be easily added without the need to drill any more entries. Using conduit can provide additional protection such as EMC shielding, impact or crush resistance and corrosion and oil resistance, depending on the application. The new fittings are ideal for Increased Safety and Dust Ignition Proof applications.”
EXD Hazardous Area Barrier Glands from Flexicon are manufactured from nickel plated brass with a nylon seal, to an IP rating of IP66, IP67, IP68 (5bar) and IP69K - ATEX certified barrier glands are suitable for use with Flexicon flexible conduit (liquid tight types) in Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 21 and Zone 22.
EXD flameproof barrier glands are suitable for use in Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 21 and Zone 22 hazardous areas, when used with the Flexicon range of liquid-tight flexible conduits.
Hazardous Area Barrier Gland (ATEX) Certified
• High mechanical strength
• Suitable for threaded entries
• Operating temperature of -60oC to +85oC
• Two-part epoxy solid-setting putty, gloves and mixing instructions
ATEX barrier glands for indoor or outdoor use in Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 21 and Zone 22 Hazardous Areas with all types of cables housed in Liquid Tight flexible conduit systems.
ATEX barrier glands are suitable for knockouts or threaded entries. Nickel plated brass compression fitting comprising of body, nut, earthing ferrule, nylon compression seal and compound barrier. The compound barrier seals around the cable conductors for hazardous area cable glanding on conduit systems.
The earthing ferrule is manufactured in machined nickel plated brass to facilitate easy assembly and re-use. Also ensures high mechanical strength and electrical continuity.
Flexicon flexible conduits with ATEX flameproof barrier glands (LTP-EXD flameproof barrier glands) are suitable for use with Flexicon LTP, LTPHC, LTPUL, LTPSS and LTPPU conduits.
