• Q. Can a protection conduit system protect cables against heat?A

    A: SILVYN® cable protection conduit systems can provide protection against external influences (mechanical, chemical, electrical). SILVYN® HIPROJACKET even protects the cable against fire or liquid metal, however the conduit cannot prevent the temperature inside the conduit being heated up. In other words, protection conduits can ward off sources of heat but they cannot actively cool the temperature.

  • Q. Where can I find the correct locknuts for SILVYN® conduit glands?

    A: The correct locknuts for conduit glands are located in the catalogue section for cable glands, plastic locknuts in SKINTOP® metallic locknuts under SKINDICHT®.

  • Q. Which conduits can I use outdoors? Where can I find the CE Declaration of Conformity for SILVYN® products?

    A: All plastic conduits, which are marked as UV- resistant. For metallic conduits the corrosion resistance must be considered, the customer must be fully aware of the application area involved. The most reliable choice amongst metallic conduits are the stainless-steel conduits because they are made of rust-resistant steel.

    There is no general and accessible CE certificate for conduit protection systems, they have to be requested and made separately from Product Management or technical department.

  • Q. Can I install protection conduits into hazardous areas?

    A: Cable protection conduits can also be installed in hazardous areas if their electrical conductivity is taken into consideration. Only electrically conductive outer materials may be used so that no sparking occurs in the event of any friction between two non-conductors. These sparks could lead to an explosion in a hazardous area. Fully-metallic conduits can be used in hazardous areas without any problems. Conduit glands require ATEX approval and they must pass hardness tests as with SKINTOP® cable glands for ATEX areas.

  • Q. Why can I not connect a SKINTOP® cable gland with a protection conduit?

    A: A cable gland was developed to clamp and seal cables that have a solid core (made of copper). SKINTOP®, in particular, has products with a variable clamping range, which enables the use of different cable outer diameters. When using SKINTOP® cable glands with a protection conduit, the protection conduit may end up being pressed-in, nor can connections be guaranteed to have a high tensile strength. SILVYN® conduit glands by contrast are always designed for a specific conduit size, and they only provide a connection option for this particular conduit size coupled with the appropriate sealing capability.

  • Q. Why are there no article numbers for SILVYN® CHAIN energy guiding systems in the catalogue?

    A: SILVYN® CHAIN energy guiding systems are a versatile and comprehensive range which includes both plastic chains and steel chains. This means that incorporating it into the general product range would entail an additional 200 pages in the catalogue. In addition to this, the SILVYN® CHAIN article numbers are issued on an individual customer basis, because each chain system contains different lengths and components.

    For any chain requirement, pls send the filled format with all specification to provide specific solution.
