– Enhances reliability, reduces risk
– Reduces man hours
– Reduces cost
• Metal-to-metal armour clamping
• Direct & remote installation
• Integral protected deluge seal
• Controlled outer ‘load retention’ seal
• Unique OSTG prevents overtightening
• -60°C to +85°C
• Globally marked, IECEx, ATEX & cCSAus
