Additional Information

Cable Gland for Cables Entering Ex e & Ex i Equipment

Although the minimum requirements for Ex e and Ex i enclosures could be met by cable glands with a single outer seal, the majority of users prefer to standardise on a double seal cable gland, to maintain a site standard, and ensure that cable gland types are not inadvertently mixed between different types of equipment protection.

The Galvanic Series

A set of values has been given to a series of metals and alloys in terms of their relative nobility, or ability to resist corrosion, whilst immersed in sea water. In other situations, where materials are not immersed, but are exposed to atmospheric contaminants, their status will be largely dependent upon the environment in which they are located.

Form of Protection Ex ‘de’

Combined Flameproof Enclosure Type ‘d’ & Increased Safety Enclosure Type ‘e’ (e.g. IEC 60079-1 & IEC 60079-7): Primary Flameproof Type ‘d’ Enclosure with Secondary Increased Safety Type ‘e’ Protection, allowing reduced frequency of periodic maintenance and inspection cycle because of the ‘e’ philosophy strategically employed. In the case of Flameproof Type ‘d’ Enclosures having an Increased Safety Type ‘e’ Terminal Chamber, ‘line barriers’ would normally be utilised between the Type ‘d’ and Type ‘e’ compartments creating an indirect cable entry interface.
