Product Announcement from Electri-Flex Company
Halogen-free, liquid-tight flexible conduit is ideal for applications in which fire may be a concern and materials must be free of the caustic effects of halogen as products of combustion.
Offering six different types of halogen-free conduit, this line provides a range of safe choices for applications in which standard liquidtight PVC conduit would generate toxic fumes and caustic smoke if burned. Installations include, but are not limited to, rapid transit stations, transit vehicles, tunnels, subways, air handling equipment, and mines.
Three new types of halogen-free conduit are from the Shield-Flex line of flexible shielding conduits. Types HFSLA, HFEMS, and HFEMCS offer shielding protection from EMI/RFI interference with the added Halogen-Free jacketing. Type ATX is designed to withstand extreme temperature ranges and uses a thermoplastic rubber (TPR) jacket over the flexible steel inner core. It is designed for use in -60°C to +150°C conditions and has a flammability rating of UL 94HB. Type CEA is designed for confined spaces such as tunnels, in -40°C to +80°C conditions. It is constructed with a specially formulated Polyurethane jacket over the steel inner core that is flame retardant, with low-smoke characteristics. It also comes in a lightweight version, Type ACEA, produced with an aluminum inner flexible core, for applications where weight is a consideration. The Type ZHLA utilizes the same jacketing and performs under the same temperature ranges as CEA, but also conforms to UL 360 and carries a UL Listing. Type CLFR is part of Electri-Flex's Corrlok® 100% Nylon corrugated conduit, tubing and connector line. It is UL Recognized, self-extinguishing, and exhibits low-smoke emissions. Types CEA, ZHLA, and CLFR comply with ASTM E162 and ASTM E662 requirements, and meet the SMP 800-C test standard.
