Turck 7/8-16UN minifast explosion-proof feed-through receptacle is CSA certified as a secondary conduit seal.

Turck 7/8-16UN minifast explosion-proof feed-through receptacle is CSA certified as a secondary conduit seal. This quick-disconnect solution can provide a secondary conduit seal to prevent gas migration or as a boundary seal, when used with a Turck CSA certified cordset. The image shows how it might be installed with a flowmeter or transmitter.

The receptacle may be applied in Class I, Division 2 locations without the use of intrinsically safe circuits or in Class I, Division 1 locations with intrinsically safe circuits, Turck says.

Fully potted in a durable 316 stainless steel housing, the explosion-proof feed-through receptacle is designed to withstand 2,000 psi of pressure. It also provides IEC IP67 protection against liquid ingress when a mating connector is attached. The receptacle installs directly into 1/2-14NPT threaded conduit entries and is rated for 600 V and 9 A. When used as a secondary conduit seal, the receptacle is limited to 30 V and 600 mA.
