The novel, compact PFLITSCH Ex-d-cable gland LevelEx
Greater safety in Ex-atmospheres
With the new LevelEx cable gland PFLITSCH has developed a modern ATEX certified cable gland in the "Ex-d" and "Ex-e" classes. It is of compact and slimline design which facilitates space-saving installation. The LevelEx comprises just four components that can be simply and securely assembled. The sealing elements are of captive design and cannot be lost during assembly.
The LevelEx achieves the type of protection IP 66 or rather IP 68 and thus corresponds to the types of protection Flameproof enclosure "Ex-d" and Increased Safety "Ex-e".
Many sizes – broad temperature range – international approvals
LevelEx cable glands are available in sizes ranging from M16 to M63 and with NPT threads from 3/8” to 2 1/2”. The cable gland bodies are made of galvanised brass and stainless steel. Cable diameters from 7 mm to 56 mm are securely sealed thanks to the large sealing range. With their broad temperature range of -60 °C to +130 °C and ATEX and IECEx certifications, they can also be used under ex-treme environmental conditions.
During pressure resistance testing the LevelEx fulfilled the minimum requirement of 30 bar/10 sec. With a reference pressure of 20 bar and a temperature of -60 °C the new PFLITSCH ATEX certified cable gland can also be used for any application. The fact that the components used meet the requirements of IEC and EN standards 60079-0 and 600979-1 was confirmed by PFLITSCH with the IECEx certificate.
