PFLITSCH plays it safe – in the chemical industry/oil and gas
PFLITSCH plays it safe.
In the production plants of the chemical industry and the oil & gas sector aspects such as temperature resistance, resistance to aggressive media and reliable explosion protection take centre stage.
This is why PFLITSCH carries many ATEX cable glands in its range. These are approved for the application areas “G” (Gas) and “D” (Dust) in equipment class II and for ignition protection categories “e” (increased safety for zones 1, 2, 21 and 22) and “d” (flameproof enclosure). Because the degree of automation is steadily increasing in the oil and gas industry, the focus is shifting increasingly to the subject of EMC. PFLITSCH therefore, has also developed ATEX certified EMC cable glands which impress with the highest screening attenuation values.
A further important issue is resistance to chemicals, e.g. against acids and alkalis. Moreover, all components have to be corrosion- and vibration- resistant: The cable glands are often applied in outdoor and offshore areas.
