Flexible conduit systems in hazardous areas are declared "a potentially safer solution that could also safe money and time," according to this new and free cable protection guide.
Its 20 pages detail different hazardous area classifications and zones. It also illustrates and describes a line of flexible conduit systems designed for those areas and applications. Details on 10 specific designs are provided.
Using Flexicon ATEX and IECEx Ex D flameproof barrier glands, the guide depicts how to specify/select compatible liquid-tight conduit systems.
It reports how "using conduit provides superior cable protection for multiple cables ... reducing the requirement for expensive specialist cables." With the systems, cables can also be grouped to decrease the number of entry points into a control box or enclosures.
