A new range of HFT conduit that is environmentally friendly has been announced by Albatech.
The four types of Australian-manufactured conduit are used to carry electrical cabling in surface and sub-surface applications and also used within safety equipment such as aspiration systems and air sampling systems for protection against smoke and toxicity.
All are all lighter and easier to install than metal and PVC conduits but do not contain environmental and safety hazards that can leach into soil or be released into the air by fire. The conduits – available in sizes ranging from 20-110 mm (outside diameter) - are complemented by a comprehensive range of junction boxes, inspection elbows and tees, bends and adaptors.
Designed to improve industrial risk management in applications ranging from factories, infrastructure, gas processing, mineral processing, coal washing, and petroleum and food and primary product processing plants, the new Evcco range comprises:
- ‘ENVIRO’ halogen-free M.D. UV-stabilised conduit
- ‘STD’ halogen-free, flame-retardant (HFFR) M.D. conduit with long-term UV protection
- ‘Hi-Po’ (HFFR) H.D. conduit with high impact resistance and long-term UV protection
- ‘FRAS’ (HFFR) H.D. conduit with anti-static properties, high impact resistance, and long-term UV protection FRAS conduit is used where static electricity may be an issue, such as grain silos, coal storage, petro-chemical plants, solvent and paint manufacturing and gas processing
Producing no corrosive or toxic flue gases in the event of a fire, the new safety polymer conduits are designed for areas where there are high concentrations of people, high concentrations of assets or risk of high costs due to production interruption.
Applications include advanced technology industrial plants, mining plants, rail and road tunnels, airports, subway systems, power plants, oil refineries, lifts, emergency plants, ships, aircraft, trains, computer and telecommunication installations. It can also be used in hospitals, schools, hotels, museums, theatres, shopping centres and conference centres.
Designed to easily follow the contours of tunnels, trenches and structures – rather than being bent or welded into shape – The Evcco range has been formulated for maximum environmental benefit without degrading overall performance, including impact resistance.
