Grounding for protection against electrostatic charging

Effective and permanent grounding of all installation components (including hoses and hose fittings) provides protection against disruption to media flow or ignition of explosive atmospheres. Please note our corresponding data sheet electrostatic charging.

Grounding Variant 1: Expose the spiral, bend it to the inside and insert the conductive hose fitting.

NORDUC® one hand assembly system

Due to the conic inside and the snap in hooks, the connector is universal suitable for different tube profiles. (Standard-, Coarse- and UFW-profile) IP 65 is reached acc. to EN 60529/IEC 60529 in this combination. The IP 68 rate is attained with an O-ring sealing, mounted in the first wave trough of the tube (trade size 50 in the first and second groove).

Step 1: Separate the tube at a corrugation crest (optimal protection of the tube and connector).
