OIL AND GAS

The oil and gas industry is one of the world’s most important suppliers of energy. Crude oil and natural gas must be transported for processing by pipeline or ship under extreme conditions before it reaches the energy supplier or the consumer. Electrical components used in the extraction, processing and distribution of these energy carriers must be Ex-compatible.

Cable glands are crucial for operational safety and reliability in Ex areas, because they ensure that electrical sparks cannot come into contact with potentially explosive atmospheres and initiate explosions.

PFLITSCH developed LevelEx for the areas “Ex-d” and “Ex-e”. The product achieves the next “level” in terms of safety. The new LevelEx ex cable gland series excels with its compact design, non-detachable parts and a large sealing range. Possible fields of application extend from offshore drilling platforms through refineries to road tankers.
