CABLE GLANDS FOR MINING APPLICATION
CMP Products has for many years designed, manufactured and supplied cable gland products for Group I mining applications, or areas including underground mines where potentially explosive atmospheres may arise. These are frequently used surface mining and quarrying applications, as well as in deep underground mines, due to the need to utilise robust solutions and for greater ease of use.
In some instances the cable gland products are similar to the equivalent Group II certified versions, but they may be required to terminate special mining cables, e.g. Type 63 / Type 64 PWA cables not normally associated with other surface industries.
Flameproof cable glands with normal screwed thread connections are standard, and alternatives with integral spigot mounting flanges are also available equipped with a two bolt fixing to allow faster connect and disconnect in order to minimise machine down time.
These products are available with both ATEX and IEC Ex certification to the latest IEC 60079 series standards, and full specification and additional technical information can be found by reviewing the mining products section here
