  • Kopex-Ex unveils new ex cable glands and valves

    The 2015 ABB Kopex-Ex catalogue adds several new ex cable glands and valves to the company's comprehensive product range of flexible conduit system solutions for use in hazardous areas. Published earlier this month, the catalogue includes more than 3,000 products selected from Kopex-Ex's 56 product areas. These are designed for use in hazardous areas by OEMs and engineers, to allow a flexible conduit system solution to be specified that is precisely suited to the needs of the job. Among the newest additions to the line-up are C4 and C5 ex cable glands, which are unarmoured and armoured respectively. ISR glands are also new to this year's catalogue - these are aluminium cable glands to be used in NEC markets with unarmoured cables. And finally, a new drain valve added to the catalogue allows moisture to escape from enclosures. "Industries and sectors - including oil and gas, mining, defence, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, power generation and utilities - have regularly chosen our products and services for their hazardous area applications," the company said. "As their businesses have evolved, so too have our solutions, ensuring ABB Kopex-Ex have stayed at the forefront of flexible conduit system development."

  • Shallow pipeline strike shows hazardous areas can be anywhere

    It's easy to think hazardous area equipment is only needed on industrial sites, where chemicals are handled and processed, or perhaps at locations where oil and gas are handled. But when it comes to delivering that gas, the presence of a pipeline alone can create a hazardous area, as a recent HSE report highlights. In September 2012, at a Lincolnshire farm, a worker was operating a tractor in the charmingly named Deer Park Hollow, one of the farm's fields. However, the charming name and the fertile soil of the field hid a secret - a gas pipeline running just a few inches below the surface. The tractor's subsoiler hit the pipeline, fracturing it and creating a substantial hazardous area which required nearby homes to be evacuated for two days until it was repaired. HSE inspector Samantha Farrar said: "The pipeline strike and the resulting uncontrolled release of gas caused a significant risk of fire or an explosion which could have resulted in the loss of life." The incident demonstrates that appearances can be deceptive - and hazardous area equipment may be needed anywhere inflammable materials are present, regardless of whether they are a main part of the site's business operations.
