Conax Sealing Glands
Thermal Detection Ltd is the UK distributor for Conax Technologies Sealing Glands, Feedthroughs and Fittings.
Conax Technologies Sealing Glands are based on soft-sealant technology whereby the plastic deformation of a sealant material within a fixed housing forms a high integrity seal. The standard sealant materials in use are Neoprene, Teflon, Viton, Lava and Grafoil which give different sealing capabilities across a wide range of temperatures, pressures and environments.
The glands are designed to enable easy installation, adjustment and replacement of elements. By carefully selecting gland type, body material, sealant material and process connection (i.e threaded, welded, flanged) it is possible to meet the requirements of many applications across all industries, and enable the sealing of pressures from full vacuum up to 670 bar (10,000 psi) and temperature ranges of -240°C to +1650°C (-400°F to +3000°F).
Thermal Detection has a 20 year history of representing Conax Technologies and we can help you choose the right gland for your application. Contact us today for assistance.
The main gland types are below, with links to product pages:
PG: For a single element (e.g temperature probe) in range of imperial and metric sizes.
MHC: For sealing multiple elements through a single gland.
MHM: For sealing multiple elements with different diameters through a single gland.
Split Glands: Internal components are split to allow wrap around of element.
EG/EGT: For single electrodes. EGT for use up to 8KV / 525A.
PL: For insulated power leads to for example, autoclaves, transformers, motors and heaters.
TG: For sealing multiple bare wires, e.g bare wire thermocouples, strain gauges, and thermistors.
BSWS: For bearing sensor wires, to prevent oil migrating along the leads.
HD: A high-density, swaged wire feedthrough mounted in a sealing gland. For thermocouples, RTDs in validation mapping of autoclaves, pharmaceutical freeze dryer or lyophilizer
