Hazardous area range extended

Published:  29 January, 2015

Flexicon reports it has extended its range of hazardous area conduit systems with the launch of an Increased Safety Ex e and Dust Ignition Proof Ex tb fitting for use with metallic liquid tight conduits.

Says Ian Gibson technical director for Flexicon: “While our LTP-EXD barrier glands can also be used for Increased Safety and Dust Ignition Protection, we recognised that not all hazardous area applications need a flameproof barrier gland and for these we can now provide a system that reduces installation times significantly and offers cost savings.” The company says the LTP-EXE conduit fittings have been independently tested and achieved an IP rating of IP66, after four weeks of heat and humidity cycling of +105°C to -25°C and 90% to 0% Relative Humidity. Offering high mechanical strength, these fittings meet the latest ATEX and IEC Ex requirements for Increased Safety. The approvals and certification is visible on the fitting and provide traceability back to the notifying body.
