WARNING

This information is the result of many years of experience and has been compiled to the best of our knowledge. It is to be used ONLY as a guide in selecting equipment for appropriate chemical compatibility.

Before permanent installation, test the equipment with the chemicals and under the specific conditions of your application.

DANGER

Variations in chemical behavior during handling due to factors such as temperature, pressure, and concentration can cause equipment to fail, even though it passed an initial test.

SERIOUS INJURY MAY RESULT use suitable guards and/or personal protection when handling chemicals.

WASTE WATER

When installing cables in waste water it is important to inspect the cables on a regular basis. Due to the variable nature and composition of waste water the cables and equipment should be easily accessible for inspection.

When aggressive and corrosive water is present the cables should be tested under the specific conditions.
