HAZARDOUS AREA CABLE GLANDS

CABLE CLANDS FOR USE IN POTENTIALLY EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES

In electrical engineering, a hazardous area is defined as a place where concentrations of flammable gases, vapors, or dusts occur. Electrical equipment installed in such locations is especially designed and tested to ensure it does not initiate an explosion due to arcing contacts or high surface temperature of equipment. With regard cable glands, these generally fall into 2 protection methods: Increased Safety (Ex e) or Flameproof (Ex d)

Increased safety Exe

 

A method of protection whereby additional measures are applied to provide increased security against the the possibility of escessive temperatures and of the occurance of arcs and sparks in normal service, or under specifiedfault conditions. With regard cable glands, this generally requires the anchoring of cables and the prevention of water ingress into the equipment

 

Flameproof Exd

 

A method of protection in which part that can ignite an explosive atmosphere are placed within an enclosure that can withstand the pressure produced during an explosion, and which prevents transmission of that explosion to the possibly expolsive atmosphere surrounding the enclosure. With regard cable glands, this functionality is achieved primarily through specially designed threads, barrier (compound) seals or inner diaphragm, displacement or compression type seals.
