Flexicon launches anti-static flexible conduit systems
31 January 2014
UK manufacturer Flexicon, has launched two new anti-static, liquid-tight conduit systems, to further enhance its range of cable protection solutions. The LTPAS and LTPPUAS flexible conduits can be used to avoid electrostatic charge build-up on installed equipment, including the surface of the conduit. This issue is particularly prevalent when working in hazardous areas.
Both systems comply with clause 7.4.2 of EN600079-0, which refers to the avoidance of a build-up of electrostatic charge on Group I or Group II electrical equipment.
Available with nominal sizes from 16mm up to 63mm, these new ranges of products are compatible with the new EXD flameproof barrier glands which offer IP ratings up to IP68 and IP69K.
The LTPAS is PVC coated with a special anti-static additive, offering high compression strength of up to 400kg with a high tensile strength of up to 130kg for use in temperatures from -20°C to 105°C.
The LTPPUAS is polyurethane coated with a special anti-static additive, offering high abrasion resistance and superior protection for arduous environments for temperatures from -40°C to 80°C.
Both the LTPAS and LTPPUAS systems are featured within the new Flexicon hazardous area catalogue. The 20-page guide details the different hazardous area classifications and zones and outlines the company’s flexible conduit systems that are suitable for use in such areas.
