Appleton has introduced a better, faster and more cost-efficient way to connect jacketed metal clad cables. New Appleton TMC2 and TMC2X cable glands are engineered specifically for heavy-duty industrial applications, such as oil refineries and chemical plants. They securely terminate interlocked /corrugated aluminum or steel armor jacketed metal clad cables (Type MC/MCHL), and continuous welded armor cables (Type CLX or TECK) to form mechanical watertight connections, while also providing excellent ground continuity for cable armor. A key to the glands' success is reduced installation time: The cable glands require no disassembly and feature a simplified two-piece design that allows the contractor to ground the armor and seal the outer jacket in one action. The slim, compact profile requires only minimum space between knockouts or hubs. The explosion-proof, dust-ignition proof TMC2X utilizes RapidEx high-speed liquid resin sealing compound that applies easily and sets within minutes. The glands feature an integral "O" ring face seal for 4X and IP68 rated protection in corrosive, wet locations, such as a marina, outdoor parking structure or paper manufacturing plant. An additional Integral Deluge proof seal is available for extreme offshore and onshore environments. Appleton TMC2 and TMC2X cable glands are available in trade sizes from 1/2-inch to 4-inches with multiple cable O.D. ranges per hub size in either copperfree aluminum, nickle plated brass or stainless steel construction. Removable cable armor end-stops accommodate larger insulated conductors.
