Cold Flow

Many types of flame-resistant cable exhibit "cold flow" of the inner sheath bedding, which could have adverse effects on the protection of the apparatus.

Where such cable is used, it is a requirement of EN 60079-14 and IEC 60079-14, clause 10.2 to employ a suitable cable entry device. The code of practice clearly states that "a cable gland employing a compression (displacement) seal should not be used on cable exhibiting cold flow characteristics".

"Cold flow" can be more fully described as thermoplastic materials which flow when subjected to pressure at ambient temperature, i.e. the inner sheath bedding material will flow away from any pressure applied to it, including that of a cable gland inner seal of the compression or displacement type, the effect being that there may no longer be an effective seal on the inner sheath of the cable.

Reversible Armour Clamp (RAC)

Reversible Armour Clamp

The original RAC clamping system was invented by Hawke and is a well established proven performer in all conditions. Simply by reversing the clamping ring, the cable gland can adjust to accommodate all types of cable armour or braid. Unlike many of our competitors, the correct stamping orientation is marked clearly with the armour size and backed up by the presence of a groove in the component. Our RAC clamping system is also fully inspectable when positioned on the cable.

Diaphragm Seal

Diaphragm Seal

Our unique diaphragm sealing system does not damage cables which exhibit ‘Cold Flow’ characteristics. The diaphragm type seal is currently the only elastomeric seal to comply fully with IEC/EN 60079-14 and is therefore suitable on effectively filled ‘cold flow’ cables which would otherwise require barrier style cable glands. Our diaphragm seal is also unique in that it is the only flameproof elastomeric seal that can be visually inspected in operation - a real benefit to inspectors.

Features Of The Universal Cable Gland

    • 1 Unique Rear Sealing System

      This arrangement offers IP66, IP67, IP68 (30 metres for 7 days), NEMA 4X and Deluge (DTS01) Ingress Protection.

      The seal is manufactured from a silicone material, has LSFZH properties, is ozone and oil resistant and is suitable for use at both high and low temperatures. The Rear Sealing System covers the entire range of cable diameters without the need for special seals and the cable acceptance range is stamped on the backnut for ease of inspection. The backnut can be hand tightened, with only one further spanner turn required to ensure IP66, IP67, IP68 and NEMA 4X.

    • 2 The Original Reversible Armour Clamp

      The original RAC clamping system was invented by Hawke over 10 years ago and is a well established proven performer in all conditions. Simply by reversing the clamping ring, the cable gland can adjust to accommodate all types of cable armour or braid. Unlike many of our competitors, the correct stamping orientation is marked clearly with the armour size and backed up by the presence of a groove in the component. Our RAC clamping system is also fully inspectable when positioned on the cable.

    • 3 Zero Cable Damage

      Our unique diaphragm sealing system does not damage cables which exhibit 'Cold Flow' characteristics. The diaphragm type seal is currently the only elastomeric seal to comply fully with IEC/EN 60079-14 and is therefore suitable on effectively filled 'cold flow' cables which would otherwise require barrier style cable glands. Our diaphragm seal is also unique in that it is the only flameproof elastomeric seal that can be visually inspected in operation - a real benefit to inspectors.

    • 4 Inspectable Deluge Seal

      Our inspectable deluge seal offers IP66 and IP67 sealing and is certified as 'deluge proof' by ITS in accordance with DTS01. Indeed, our deluge seal is so good that it exceeds the expectations of the offshore industry by not only preventing ingress into the equipment, but also into the cable gland, which prevents corrosion of the cable armour.
