Cable Glands – CMP Double Seal Features

1 Compensating Displacement Seal CDS – inner cable gland seal separate from the armour clamping section prevents manual over-tightening of the gland body. Traditional compression seal cable glands are inherently prone to excess force during installation using cable gland spanners. CMP unique CDS system ensures gland components are tightened “metal-to-metal” – this prevents crushing damage to cable bedding and coldflow.

2 & 3 Effective Armoured Cable Termination – CMP glands feature a unique cable termination providing permanent crimping of armoured cables with effective and secure armour earth continuity via the 3) CMP AnyWay clamping ring.

4 Outer Cable Seal – IP/NEMA rated cable gland seals are achieved around the cable sheath and armour.

5 Deluge Proof Cable Gland Sealing – preventing cable armour corrosion by ensuring moisture cannot track and penetrate around the gland threads and ingress into the armour termination body.

How To Select Cable Glands

To ensure the correct specification and supply of cable glands the following selection procedure should be followed:

Check Cable Specification – cable construction, insulation type, outside diameter B, voltage, armour type.

Armoured Cable Glands

Cable armour type and material – single wire armour/braid

Calculated short circuit current rating of the cable armour

Inner bedding cable diameter A

Lead sheath cover diameter

Type and size of cable armour or braid C

Cable Gland Considerations

Environmental – highly corrosive onshore and offshore applications requiring protective nickel plated or 316 grade stainless steel glands in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries. Concerns about toxic gas emissions in confined spaces and public buildings to maintain circuit integrity of low smoke zero halogen cables. Levels of atmospheric moisture exposure impacting on the ingress protection (IP) rating requirement and need for entry thread sealing washers – specialist application high performance cable glands are available to meet the operating requirements of all industry sectors.

Electrical Enclosure – eliminate dissimilar metal contact and risk of bi-metallic corrosion. Check cable entry hole and material thickness of the gland plate to determine whether extended threads are required (thread conversion adaptors/reducers may be required).

Short Circuit of LV, MV & HV Power Systems – medium and high voltage power cable systems with high fault current ratings require glands with suitable short circuit protection (CMP CIEL Cast Integral Earth Lug).

Hazardous Area Cable Glands – for explosive atmosphere applications compliance and adherence to national or international standard codes of practice must be ensured (ATEX, IECEx, INMETRO, CSA, EAC).
