Gland Adaptors and Gland Reducers

cable glandProblems caused by dissimilar threads can occur in both hazardous and industrial environments. Raxton products are fully approved to meet these requirements, being EExd and EExe certified as ATEX, CSA, IECE and GOST Standards. Adaptors provide a means of connection between dissimilar thread forms or sizes. Reducers effectively reduce the threaded entry diameter of an enclosure to accept a gland or fitting with a smaller thread. Reducers may also be supplied to accept smaller glands of alternative threads forms.

Stopping Plugs

Stopping plugs are designed to close any unused entries in electrical equipment. They are available in a variety of thread forms and materials. Type CB, CF and CQ are fastened by means of standard allen keys 6mm - 10mm or 19mm A/F. EExd plugs are fitted into threaded entries into enclosures and can be used as an IP protection by the addition of a washer or ‘O’ ring of non-setting sealing compound. EExe plugs can be fitted through a clearance hole and closure is achieved by use of a lock nut. IP protection can be achieved by use of a washer or an ‘O’ ring.

360 Degree Swivel Adaptors

Raxton have launched an innovative addition to their extensive range of Thread Conversion products. The new Swivel Adaptor has all the advantages of the fixed 90º Adaptor, with the addition of the new “swivel feature”, which allows engineers to have a full 360º choice of cable entry/exit positions. This enables the engineer to run the cable in any direction - greatly improving ease of installation in confined or difficult situations. The cable entry/exit can be aligned without the over or under torque compromise imposed by the direction of cable. The inline type allows independent connection at both ends. The temperature range of -50°C to +230°C is governed by the use of an internal silicon “O” ring which maintains the integrity of the product ensuring that it conforms to the over pressure requirement of the latest standard.

Construction: Brass (with optional Nickel plating), Stainless Steel, Mild Steel, Aluminium.
