Proof Engineering’s range of double compression cable glands, including the Orion, Crater & Taurus Exd AMPgland, ensures safe and efficient securing and sealing of cables in the mining, oil and gas industries. AMPgland’s unrivalled cable securing and sealing capability is due to its unique design which features two O-rings on the shielding cone. The double compression O-ring ensures double sealing by preventing the intrusion of contaminants such as water and dust. Alongside achieving high strain relief and explosion proof protection, the special shape of the gland’s lower and upper seal also earns it an IP66/68 rating. Installation of the AMPgland is easy and simple, keeping downtime to a minimum.
There is no need to change, remove or adjust any internal components as long as the diameter of the used cable is within the declared clamping range. The swiveling shielding cone for clamping armour is secured to the upper and lower body by the O-rings. This prevents the shielding cone from being lost during disassembly of cable gland during installation. “The addition of these cable glands has boosted our comprehensive flameproof product range of plugs, sockets, connectors, adaptors, couplers, plug couplers and luminaires,” says MD, Donovan Marks. “Our expanded basket of offerings which now includes the cable, the connector and the AMPgland, positions us as a solutions provider for virtually any electrical installation,” he concludes.
