Safe, efficient cable sealing

1 July 2020 Other technologies

Proof Engineering Solutions has designed and manufactured the AMPgland double-compression cable gland range to provide the mining and oil and gas industries with an all-inclusive, safe and efficient electrical installation solution. The range, which includes the Orion, Crater and Taurus Exd, features a unique cutting edge design that incorporates two O-rings on the shielding cone. The double compression O-ring prevents the intrusion of contaminants such as water and dust which may be trapped between the two O-rings, preventing contact with armour. This unrivalled protection delivers unparalleled cable securing and sealing capabilities. In addition to achieving high strain relief and explosion proof protection, the special shape of the gland’s lower and upper seal also earns it an IP 66/68 rating.

The AMPgland’s smart design makes for easy installation and maintenance, keeping costs and downtime to a minimum. Director, Donovan Marks, explains that as long as the diameter of the used cable is within the declared clamping range, there is no need to change, remove or adjust any internal components. In addition, the swivelling shielding cone for clamping armour is secured to the upper and lower body by the O-rings, preventing the shielding cone from being lost during disassembly of cable gland during installation. As the internal parts are fixed only with the O-rings, they can be easily removed with a simple pulling movement during inspection without any risk of damaging cables, keeping maintenance time to a minimum.
