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.

Technical Data
Features
Application

Application

Outdoor or indoor use.
For use with single wire armour ‘W’, wire braid ‘X’ and steel tape armour ‘Z’ elastomer and plastic insulated cables.
For particular use with:-
a) Cable inner sheaths that are not effectively filled, compact and/or circular, have tape bedding or have hygroscopic fillers.
b) Cables that exhibit ‘cold flow’ characteristics.
c) Enclosures for gas group IIC, under 2 litres in volume and containing an ignition source.
d) Enclosures for gas groups IIA or IIB, which are greater than 2 litres in volume and contain an ignition source.

Features

Provides a barrier seal to the individual insulated cores within the cable and prevents entry of the products of an explosion into the cable.
The required number of holes for the cores are punched in the seal by means of a special tool to suit the core size.
Provides armour clamping using one clamping arrangement for all armour/braid types.
Deluge protection option available contact Hawke Technical Sales for details.
Provides a cable retention and low smoke and fume, zero halogen seal onto the cables outer sheath.

Materials & Finishes

The PSG 553/RAC cable gland is manufactured in Brass (standard), Nickel Plated Brass, 316 Stainless Steel or Aluminium. Brass NPT entries are nickel plated as standard.
