Plug in Vent / Plug in Pressure Balance Element


  • Polyamide with PTFE membrane
  • Suitable for cable glands that can clamp to12mm diameter.
  • Suitable for industrial area applications and also: food/beverage/pharmaceutical manufacturing and preparation.
  • Protection class: IP66 (Dustproof and protection from water jets) and IP69K (steam pressure water jets)
  • Temperature rating -30ºC to +100ºC
  • Gland accessories including, fibre sealing washers and lock nuts.
  • Dimensions from M12 x 1.5 to M40 x 1.5 and PG7.

Ingress protection levels

IP66 and 69K (EN 60529/IEC 60529)

Ambient temperature

-30ºC to +100°C


Fluctuations in temperature within an enclosure can lead to condensation. Condensation forms rapidly particularly inside airtight enclosures because humidity cannot escape and this can lead to component damage and in extreme cases short circuits or failure of the unit. It is possible to alleviate this potential problem through the use of pressure balance elements, which are fitted with a special, gas-permeable, hydrophobic film membrane.

CE-TEK’s IP66/IP69K polyamide pressure balance element vent can be easily inserted into any conventional cable gland which can be clamped to accept 12mm diameter cable,  for example most M20, M25, PG13.5 and PG16 glands can be used.
