The most reliable solution
Cavicel provides a wide range of gas-tight cables suitable for all the application where the risk of explosion is high
Where the risk of explosion is high, gas-tight cables are essential to prevent the propagation of gases and to keep the plant and the operators working on it safe.
Cavicel’s gas-tight cables, fundamental for oil & gas plants, refineries and gas distributions plants, are designed to prevent the propagation of gases and they are fully in compliance with the IEC 60079 -14 norm.
Even though the ATEX environments are regulated by the IEC 60079 norms, most cables are unable to fulfil the standard requirements. This, because of cables lack of compactness: the spaces between cores and fillers allow combustible gases to flow in and to spread inside the connected components, endangering the plant and the operators’ lives.
Cavicel’s gas-tight cables are carefully type-tested according to IEC 60079-14 ANNEX E norm regulations: our equipped laboratory allows in-house testing solutions and the issuing of test report certificates.
Be safe and choose Cavicel’s gas-tight cables.
