T&D distribute hazardous area (ATEX) flameproof cable glands to the oil, gas, petrochemical offshore and marine industries.
CMP flameproof cable glands (A2F, E1FW, E2FW, E1FX) with ATEX certification provide an inner and outer proof sheath seal with armour clamp for steel wire, steel tape, screened or braided cables and lead sheathed cables.
CMP flameproof cable glands are Dual Certified for Flameproof EEx d and Increased Safety EEx e methods of explosion protection - CMP Triton cable glands are deluge proof (submersible) and flameproof suitable for terminating SWA, STA and braided cables.
Hazardous area cable glands suit Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 21 and Zone 22 with Dual Certification (Flameproof Type 'Ex d' and Increased Safety Type 'Ex e').
ATEX Certified Electrical Equipment for Hazardous Areas
ATEX is the name given to a set of European Directives relating to Hazardous Area Electrical Equipment Installations (Flammable Atmospheres) to avoid industrial accident or incident. ATEX Directive 94/9/EC (ATEX 95), is a directive adopted by the EU under the “New Approach” strategy.
The “New Approach” ATEX directive supersedes the “Old Approach” ATEX Directive, the Potentially Explosive Atmospheres Directive, 76/117/EEC – ATEX 94/9/EC (ATEX 95) facilitates free trade in the EC for hazardous area electrical equipment intended to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres. ATEX Directive 94/9/EC (ATEX 95) covers “Electrical Equipment” used in hazardous areas with potentially explosive atmospheres created by presence of gases, vapours, mists or dusts. T&D UK stock and distribute an extensive range of ATEX Certified Electrical Equipment for Hazardous Areas including cable glands, electrical enclosures, junction boxes, plugs and sockets, cable joints, control stations, cable transits, cable cleats, mobile phones, laptops, digital cameras, conduit systems, portable lighting (torches, handlamps, headlamps).
Flameproof Ex "d" Cable Glands - electrical equipment may include arcing and sparking (incendive) devices and flammable mixtures which may enter the enclosure or junction box. The cable gland design is specified to contain an internal explosion and prevent transmission of sufficient energy to ignite a potentially flammable atmosphere outside the enclosure or junction box.
