IEC 60079-14 mandates the use of barrier glands to be fitted to the unfilled multicore cable, especially on Ex d equipment and where there is a risk of gas migration through the cable.
With the increased use of unfilled and multicore cables in explosive gas atmospheres the use of barrier glands has become more necessary.
CCG’s Pioneering QuickStop-Ex Injection Resin 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 QuickStop-Ex Injection Resin® system is instantly and 100% accurately mixed, whilst being simultaneously injected into the barrier gland in one single action.
Ease Of Use
QuickStop-Ex Injection Resin® is held in a 2-part injection cartridge and with a Vortex Mixing Nozzle™, it requires just one hand to mix and apply. Unlike the two-part putty or sachet mix liquid resins requiring two hands to laboriously mix.
Instant Accurate Mixing and Simultaneous Injection QuickStop-Ex Injection Resin® is instantly and accurately mixed and then simultaneously injected in just one action through the Vortex Mixing Nozzle™, completely eliminating the time taken as well as the risks involved which are prevalent when premixing other forms of resins.
100% Safe And Effective QuickStop-Ex® liquid resin flows into and fills all the voids in unfilled multi-core cables displacing all air and guaranteeing a 100% perfect barrier seal gas and moisture.
Quick Setting QuickStop-Ex Injection Resin® sets in minutes at 20°C it takes 15 minutes to set and at 30°C it takes just 10 minutes. Compared to 2-3 hours for an epoxy putty barrier gland.
