Product Description:
space
The HL Gland is designed for sealing protection in a wide variety of hazardous environments. It is CSA® certified in the U.S. and Canada for use in hazardous locations defined by the NEC® as Class I, Div.1 and 2, Groups B, C, and D; Class II, Div. 1 and 2, Groups E, F, and G; and Class III.The HL Gland is superior to Chico® and other similar conduit sealing compound fittings commonly used in hazardous environments. The Conax HL Gland meets the requirements of both a primary seal and secondary seal as defined in the 2006 Canadian Electrical Code. Therefore, it can be used in conjunction with a Chico® seal on existing applications or can be used by itself in new installations. It also meets the requirements of a “conduit seal” and “cable seal” by preventing the passage of flames.The HL Gland eliminates costly replacement of instruments since the HL Gland prevents the seepage of moisture/condensation into the instrument housing which is often a source for corrosion and ultimately can result in instrument failure. With a mechanically-sealed Conax HL Gland, you will not have to be concerned about:
  • Cracks in compound sealants
  • Incorrectly installed compound sealant that allow gases or liquids to leak in the conduit system
  • Migration of explosive gases through stranded conductors due to a pressure differential in the conduit system.
