Turck 7/8-16UN minifast explosion-proof feed-through receptacle is CSA certified as a secondary conduit seal. This quick-disconnect solution can provide a secondary conduit seal to prevent gas migration or as a boundary seal, when used with a Turck CSA certified cordset. The image shows how it might be installed with a flowmeter or transmitter.
The receptacle may be applied in Class I, Division 2 locations without the use of intrinsically safe circuits or in Class I, Division 1 locations with intrinsically safe circuits, Turck says.
Fully potted in a durable 316 stainless steel housing, the explosion-proof feed-through receptacle is designed to withstand 2,000 psi of pressure. It also provides IEC IP67 protection against liquid ingress when a mating connector is attached. The receptacle installs directly into 1/2-14NPT threaded conduit entries and is rated for 600 V and 9 A. When used as a secondary conduit seal, the receptacle is limited to 30 V and 600 mA.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
