The innovative Roxtec BG™ product range is already a success in several industries. As a leading sealing supplier to offshore companies, Roxtec is now developing a bonding and grounding concept for very harsh environments.
Roxtec BG solutions combine the simplicity and flexibility of the Roxtec multi-cable transit sealing system with the ability to bond and ground metal clad or armoured cables. The new system also provides protection against weather, explosion, rodents and fire. It is fire-rated for bulkheads, walls, decks and floor entries, and IP 66/67 and NEMA 1, 2, 3, 3R, 4, 4X, 5, 12 and 13-rated for electrical enclosures.
Like other Roxtec seals, the Roxtec BG solutions can be used in many different industries.
"Roxtec BG was an instant success within onshore oil and gas, for which it was originally developed. Then it was discovered by our telecom customers. We now experience a huge interest in this electrical safety solution also from customers working with offshore projects all over the world," says Fredrik Timonen, global segment manager oil and gas offshore, Roxtec.
Roxtec BG solutions are designed to increase the cable density capacity while decreasing the footprint. They are up to 70% more area efficient than traditional cable glands. A single 'window' cut-out in a cabinet can accommodate up to 32 cables - and replace 32 individual knock-outs and 32 cable glands! Users can thereby use smaller, lighter cabinets and significantly reduce costs and project risks.
