Explosion Proof Glands

In many areas such as the chemical industry, paint shops, offshore refineries, petrol stations, the textile and paper industry, the food industry, glass and / or ceramics industry, wood processing and many other industries, equipment are operated in explosive areas.

Due to the high risk to persons and property in case of an explosion, especially strict legal and technical requirements apply to explosive areas in particular. AGRO Ex cable glands made of brass or plastic comply with the strictest requirements and ensure safe cable entry in explosive areas. All cable glands are certified accordingly and come with an EC type-examination certificate. IECEx certification allows for worldwide use. 

1-  Short, long or special entry thread
Ex Cable glands with short or long entry thread designed as metric, Pg, gas-pipe or NPT can be used with existing opening threads or with a counter nut.

2-  Stable spanner flats
Large, stable spanner flats on the nut simplify tightening using the assembly tool.

3-  Guaranteed seal
Inner contours matched to the sealing insert ensure a targeted deformation of the insert and thus guarantee its tightness in compliance with protection class IP 68 up to 10 bar (flameproof enclosure 30 bar) and IP 69 for a wide range of applications.
