HellermannTyton recently had the opportunity of working with one of the largest petroleum and mining companies globally. Their team of specialists visited the site to understand what was needed by the customer and how they could best harness their products and expertise to not just meet but exceed customer expectations.

The project was solution based and the task was to encapsulate their speakers which required IP68 protection from all outside elements including rain and dust. This would ensure that in the unfortunate event of an emergency, the speakers were fully functional and performed at 100% capacity.

HellermannTyton’s Relicon brand, which holds several insulation products including the Religel, is well known among electrical contractors and engineers in the global market.

Religel is popular for use in junction boxes; this non-conductive, quick curing, soft, elastic silicone gel is chemical and moisture resistant. It is ideal for use in submerged electrical installations to offer the perfect solution to the customer’s requirements.

The team demonstrated the Religel, and the mining plant conducted their own testing to ensure the product met international safety and quality standards. The gel met all requirements and achieved approval for use in specific explosion proof zones and environments.

Not only does the product meet standards, the Relicon Religel is also easy to remove and versatile, thus saving the customer time and money and making re-application a breeze. The customer was extremely satisfied with the product’s performance and results – later specifying the use of Religel in all panels, junction boxes as well as pumps on their mining sites.
