CCG wins 'Best User Application' award at Hazardex conference.

There has been some recent debate and confusion surrounding the selection and use of barrier glands in relation to the latest IEC 60079-14 standard and the HSE released a safety notice to this effect. This confusion has resulted in the increased usage of barrier glands.

However traditional barrier glands have always required special skills from the reluctant installers to premix the epoxy putty or resin and thus they draw particular attention from inspectors because of the resultant failures.

CCG’s patented QuickStop-ExTM Barrier Gland, with an instant mixing and injecting resin, has all but eliminated the problems surrounding the preparing, mixing and applying of compounds/resins in Barrier Glands. The Injection Resin system is instantly and 100% accurately mixed, whilst being simultaneously injected into the barrier gland in one single action.

This reduces the installation time substantially and gives the installer an increased confidence in the installation compared to other barrier glands.

The Injection resin flows into all the cable voids and interstices, completely filling the cable end. This forms a 100% barrier to any migration of explosive gases or fluids down the inside of unfilled hygroscopic cables significantly improving on the safety performance of barrier glands installed in hazardous areas.
