Test houses in Australia and North America are the latest to test and certify the performance of Hawke International's cable glands for use with Exd and Exe apparatus. The company has an on-going programme to expand the certification of their hazardous area products to ensure they keep ahead of customers' approval requirements around the globe. The current list includes approvals for Europe (ATEX), USA (UL(), Canada (CSA), Russia (GOST) and Brazil (CEPEL).

The new Australian approval follows testing by International Testing and Certification Services (ITACS), who certify the glands for use with flameproof and increased safety equipment. Additionally, Hawke's North American cable glands/connectors have been tested and listed by the Underwriter's Laboratory (UL() for use with AExe and AExd apparatus under the NEC's Class and Zone Hazardous Location structure. This listing supplements Hawke's long established Class and Division approval. Full details of the certification are available on the Hawke web site

Commenting on the approvals, Michael Connelly of Hawke, said, "The oil, gas and petrochemical industries are truly international so it is vital that our products meet all the required standards. This gives our customers the confidence that in specifying Hawke equipment they are securing the safety of their global production environments."
