Hawke News – Russian And Chinese Approvals Expansion

We have achieved significant approvals for our hazardous area cable gland and connector product ranges from the relevant Russian and Chinese authorities. The ControlEx flameproof range of connectors for use in hazardous areas has achieved GOST-R certification, allowing for their use in the Russian territories, which is of ever increasing importance within the oil and gas market.

Our connectors, including models for low medium and high power applications, are a major aid to productivity. They permit speedy and safe connection of instrumentation, control and power equipment. This allows the installation and commissioning of service modules or the deployment of permanently fixed and temporary plant to proceed safely and more quickly within a hazardous environment.Chinese GB approval has also been given by the CQST test organisation for the IECEx approved ranges of cable glands that have been tested by BASEEFA in the UK. This supplements the existing ATEX, IECEx, GOST, ABS, DNV, CEPEL, UL, cUL, and CSA certifications. These ensure where hard-wired permanent connections are required, our cable glands meet the need for robust cable termination. All models are engineered for secure cable anchorage, long life, low maintenance and easy inspection. The extensive range has high integrity seals, deluge protection and can be used with a range of cable diameters and constructions.

Safety and long term reliability is a crucial issue for the global oil and gas industry and as Russian and Chinese capacity increases we are in a position to supply world-class electrical connection products to these expanding markets.
