Thread Converters & Accessories

Hazardous Area Products // Thread Converters & Accessories

Sometimes it's necessary to convert threads from male to female, reduce them in size or couple components together in some other way.

However, this is easier said than done when working with hazardous area equipment, as using the wrong type of thread converters could invalidate the safety certificate. Browse our thread converters and accessories here.

At Cable Systems we stock thread converters & accessories that are suitable for use with hazardous area products, so safety is not compromised.

Some examples of this include:

  • Adaptors & Reducers including right-angle joints, T and Y connectors.
  • Stopping Plugs to cap off unused connections in a safe and tamper-proof way.
  • Breather Drain Plugs that reduce moisture build-up by allowing humid air to vent.
  • Unions that create a direct male-male or female-female connection without exposed thread.

Adaptors & reducers in particular are useful to connect equipment where the thread size is different from that of the relevant safety enclosure.

These products are ATEX/IECEx certified for use in Exd and Exe hazardous areas to minimise explosion risks.
