ALCHUW glands come in one, two or three seals, A, B and C (where applicable). The table of dimensions (above) gives the range of cable diameters to suit each seal. Select the required seal. These glands are not to be used where the temperature at the mounting point, or the branching point is outside the gland operating range of -20°C to +80°C or for cables for flexible applications.
Slide the gland nut, then the selected seal over the cable.
Screw the gland body into the enclosure, by screwing into tapped fitting.
1. The fibre washer provided is required to maintain the IP66/68 & Ex d ratings.
2. For Ex d applications where minimum thread requirements apply, ensure the selected screwing method applies.
Slide the cable through the gland body until a tail of the required length protrudes through the gland.
Slide the seal into the gland body. Note: A small amount of rubber grease, petroleum jelly or cable pull lube applied between the outer surface of the seal and the taper of the gland nut aids assembly considerably.
Slide the gland nut onto the gland and screw to tighten.
