Flexicon launch most liquid tight conduit system in the UK

Flexicon claims to have launched the most liquid tight conduit system in the UK by further enhancing its range of compression fittings.  It has an IP rating of IP69k. 

 

 

 

The compression fittings are suitable for the company’s LTP galvanised steel plastic coated liquid tight range and also for its LPC smooth spiral reinforced pvc system.

 

An IP69k rating allows equipment to be steam cleaned by a high pressure, high temperature jet wash.  It is suitable for equipment that needs regular intensive cleaning such as in food processing.  The IP69k rating extends the BS EN 60529 rating system to a new standard DIN 40050.

 

The fittings include a multipart compression fitting with a nylon seal, which you can use for knockout or threaded entries as it rotates until tightened.  Also available are  compression fittings that swivel about the main body even after tightening, a 90o, 45o and a multipart compression coupler that includes seals for joining two conduits.   These fittings can be used with conduit sizes ranging from 10mm to 63mm and are available with metric, PG and NPT thread variants.

 

The LTP conduit range has a smooth, wipe clean outer cover, is resistant to oils and greases and UV light for external applications.  For applications requiring a wide temperature range, you can use the LTPHC variant for temperatures between -45oC to 135oC.

 

 

 

The LPC spiral reinforced pvc range is a non-metallic alternative and can accept some torsional movement.  Colour coded versions provide oil resistance (green), high flexibility (orange) or protection against wider temperature ranges of between -5oC to 90oC (blue). 

 

It is a lighter weight than metallic versions and is faster to install, particularly when cutting to length.  The LPC range can also be used with non-metallic or stainless steel fittings making it ideal for the food processing industry.
