Magnacable Mineral Insulated Cable
Flexible yet secure, Magnacables are quickly becoming the new standard of wiring in hazardous locations. With the use of Magnacable Mineral Insulated Cable, you not only eliminate the safety concerns of conduit and wire installations, but also eliminate the cost of additional material. Examples of this are the elimination of having to use pull boxes, unions, grounding wires, conduit seals, and other fittings. Magnacables are pressure tested to 2000 PSI and offer superior performance by blocking the passage of gases, vapors, liquids and flames. Magnacable eliminates pressure build-up and confines any exploding gases to their defined area. In contrast, if a conduit seal fails, gas or liquids can leak: a main reason why many companies require single or double conduit seals in hazardous areas (Class 1/Div 1) and seals to be x-rayed and inspected on an annual basis. Conduit seals must also be placed within 18” of the arcing device or instrument to be connected to the conduit. Magnacable assemblies are exempt from these requirements and are UL approved for use in Class I, groups B, C and D, Division I hazardous areas, also meeting NEC requirements.
