High air flow rate with a space-saving design

The new breathable VentPLUG pressure equalization units emphasize WISKA's Venting competence

(PresseBox) (Kaltenkirchen, ) Especially flat and highly breathable – those are the two outstanding features of the new VentPLUG pressure equalization units in the sizes M 20 and M 40 by WISKA. With these new products, the supplier for the craft, industry and shipbuilding underlines his overall competence in the field of condensation prevention.

With an enhanced membrane, WISKA has significantly improved the air flow rate of the new VentPLUG pressure equalization units in M 20 and M 40. In the standard version of the membrane the air flow rate is more than doubled. The high air flow version even achieves an again 2.5 times higher value. The advantages of the used ePTFE membrane e. g. resistance against UV, salt water, oils and grease is retained and make the VentPLUG suitable for roughest conditions including maritime environments.

Another novum is their space-saving design. WISKA has developed two especially flat pressure equalizations units in M 20 and M 40. They are ideally suited for electrical installations with limited space – e. g. in LED lighting modules. Furthermore the new units with their bigger thread sizes are made for the venting of big enclosures as for example in switch board constructions.

Broad possible application due to wide product range

The VentPLUG in M 20 and M 40 complement the extensive venting product range consisting of cable glands and pressure equalization units and thereby offer an even broader application. Breathable venting products from WISKA ensure effective pressure equalization between the interior and exterior. This reduces stress on the seal and maintains the enclosure´s protection classes. Venting products from WISKA therefore help to increase operational safety and extend the service lives of electrical installations. This has a sustaining positive effect on maintenance costs. VentGLAND ® cable glands and VentPLUG pressure equalization units are being used around the world, especially in sectors that are moisture and temperature sensitive such as shipping, and the lighting and solar industries.

Pioneering Venting competence

Being a pioneer in the development of breathable cable glands, WISKA today is an expert for watertight yet breathable components avoiding condensation. With the launch of the VentGLAND®  in 2007, the world's first cable  gland with pressure equalization, WISKA set new benchmarks. Thread sizes include M 12 to M 63 with a wide range of materials such as polyamide, brass and stainless steel. Completed by their high protection classes of IP 68 and 69K, venting products by WISKA appear to be true multitalents. On top of that different application specific membranes with differing air flow rates are offered. By its longstanding competence and customer specific consulting WISKA offers individual solutions for every demand.
