VariaPro FKM resists acids and bases

With the youngest member of the VariaPro family, HUMMEL AG is addressing the process industry. The cable gland VariaPro FKM is designed for applications in chemistry, the pharmaceutical industry or biotechnology. It is particularly resistant to acids and chemicals. Specifically, it is resistant to aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons, mineral oil and petrol, but also to oxygen, ozone or steam. The cable gland VariaPro FKM is the instrument of choice anywhere, where these substances are predominant in the surroundings of an application.
HUMMEL AG uses FKM sealing inserts with these cable glands. This material has proved excellent in the numerous tests. The gland is designed for a temperature range of -20⁰C to +180⁰C. Also in terms of leak tightness the new gland impresses with an IP 68 degree of protection up to 10 bar.
The slim structure of the VariaPro is striking. It thereby meets the requirements for space saving installation. Added to this is the ease of installation of the cable gland, in which the EMC connection is already integrated as standard. The housing is made of nickel plated brass. The new cable gland is initially available in four sizes M20, M25, M32 and M40. Thanks to the intelligent combination of sealing inserts and reducers, VariaPro FKM can accommodate cables of diameters from 7 to 32 millimetres. 
VariaPro FKM is part of the new VariaPro product family. Behind this is a modular concept of a whole range of cable glands for special applications. With the VariaPro cable glands, HUMMEL AG is addressing demanding markets with special applications. As well as the VariaPro FKM, there is a variant for use in high and low temperature ranges (VariaPro Temp), not to mention the VariaPro Rail for rail transport.
