Cable Packing Gland

Assembly for
Single Cable Exit Only
CMSS 301120xx*

The Cable Packing Gland (CPG) Assembly offers a splash-proof cable exit from the machine case. It is
an ideal accessory for use with both the standard and radiation resistant versions of Eddy Probe and
Extension Cables when the need arises. It is an effective and easily installed low pressure (60 PSI/4
bars) seal. The internal oil resistant neoprene packing as well as washers are split to allow cable
installation without connector removal.

Functional descriptions
[1] Set screw 10-32 UNF-2B hole.
[2] Body Threads into 1/2 NPT or 3/4 NPT tapped hole in machine casing depending on model
number.
[3] Split washers Depending on model number, various combinations of split washers are
provided. Those washers with the 0.125 slots are used with standard Eddy Probe System Cable
and those washers with 0.257 slots for the radiation resistant Eddy Probe System Cable.
[4] Gland Neoprene rubber disk with slit for cable. Has 0.12 diameter hole (DIM A). Must drill
to 0.156 for radiation resistant cable.
[5] Compression nut Threads into body [2]. Screws down to compress gland [4] between teflon
washers [6] and split washers [3]. Held by set screw [1].
[6] Teflon washers Used to preclude metal-to-metal binding between split washers, body and
compression nut while tightening.

Installation procedure
a. If installation requires radiation resistant cable, first assemble the Cable Packing Gland (CPG)
Assembly without the cable. Torque items [2] and [5] to approximately pressure-tight fit, and
tighten set screw [1]. Then drill through neoprene gland to enlarge to 0.156 as appropriate.
b. Drill hole in machine casing for 1/2 NPT or 3/4 NPT as appropriate.
c. Thread cable through hole in casing and through CPG Assembly body [2].
d. Coat male threaded portion of CPG Assembly body with pipe joint compound, and screw into 1/2
NPT or 3/4 NPT tapped hole in the machine casing.
e. Install first washer(s) [6] then [3], gland [4] second washer(s) [3] then [6] in CPG Assembly
body. (It may be necessary to wet the neoprene gland [4] or spray it with silicone compound for
lubrication in order to insert it fully into the body.)
f. Thread cable through compression nut [5] and screw nut onto body [2]. Torque the compression
nut down until gland is pressure tight, approximately 30 ft. lbs. (40 newton/meters). Then tighten
set screw [1] firmly enough to hold compression nut in position.
g. Half inch conduit for the cable can be attached to the compression nut by the 1/2 NPT internal
female threads provided.
