New Xp–Flex Flexible Couplings Are UL Listed
13 September 2012
For any organisations selling electrical assemblies into the US market, the launch of the Kopex-Ex UL listed range of XP-Flex explosion-proof flexible couplings will be of particular interest. As UL listed products they are approved for use in hazardous and wet locations including Class 1, Div 1 & 2 classified areas. This classification covers areas where ignitable concentrations of flammable gasses, vapours or liquids are present within the atmosphere under normal operating conditions
XP-Flex explosion-proof flexible couplings have a flexible bronze construction with an arc resistant inner sleeve and brass fittings. They are terminated with two threaded female end fittings and male close nipples. With their flexible design, XP-Flex couplings make it easy to achieve tight bends in electrical conduit systems in confined spaces - or to connect stationary equipment to equipment that moves or vibrates. Their explosion-proof and corrosion-resistant construction means they can be used with confidence in hazardous and wet areas.
The XP-Flex range is available in 150-915mm flexible lengths, with ½, ¾ and 1 inch NPT threads available. These complement the Kopex-Ex range of enlargers, reducers, converters, universal stopping glands and swivel glands that are also available for Class, 1 Div 1 and 2 applications. The glands employ a putty to maintain any explosion within an enclosure.
