In this YouTube video, Thomas Betts looks at installation methods for one type of explosion-proof cable fitting. An explosion-proof seal is necessary in electrical work for safety purposes.
Star Teck STX and STEX explosion-proof fitting components work with Teck cables, ACWU cables, and metal-corrugated cables.
These components already come with the necessary fittings preinstalled that otherwise would have to be attached and installed separately.
Liquid or putty can be used for sealing the cables with these cable conductors. Liquid-sealant is always recommended over putty and is always required for lines with more than four conductors.
Prepare the cable by stripping out one inch of the outer covering. Cut through the metallic center with a saw at a forty-five-degree angle. Remove the outer jacket and armor. Always make sure the cable remains completely clean. The red tags on the fittings will say which sealing compounds can be used for that fitting. No other sealing compounds other than what is listed can safely be used.
Push the cable into the fitting and tighten down the gland nut. Ensure the bushing is sticking out correctly and is flush with the appropriate points. Unscrew the fittings on the connector side so that the inner jacket can be removed one-quarter of an inch. Remove the rest of the jacket and separate the conductors. Take away ripcords and fillers. Apply the appropriate sealant by following the directions in the kit. There are only four-five minutes before it hardens. Reassemble the connector bolt.
When you are looking to make a lifelong commitment to your significant other, many questions can arise. Organizing wedding plans can be extremely stressful. Before you get to that point, you need to pick the right engagement ring. This is a pressure-filled decision on its own.
You can always ask your local jeweler for advice, but it would be best to have some sort of idea of what you are looking for before getting there. This video will help answer some of the burning questions you come across while looking for the perfect engagement ring.
The first consideration that you may wonder about is the price of the ring. Some people believe that you need to spend “x” amount of dollars to satisfy your significant other. This simply isn’t true. Knowing what sort of ring he or she wants is much more important than the price tag. Ideally, you should know what shape, band, and ring size are desired. That should be the bare minimum that you can relay to the jeweler when looking for the ring.
Gaskets act as seals to help prevent leaks to keep joints sealed together. They are essential in certain industries and used on a wide variety of products across a whole range of industries. Gaskets come in many shapes and sizes in order to fit effectively seal all sorts of surfaces. In some cases, it becomes necessary to create a custom gasket. In this video, you will learn about what takes place at a gasket manufacturer in order to produce custom gaskets.
A quality gasket manufacturer can make gaskets of literally any size and shape. Shapes can be scaled up or down, and shapes can be skewed, so that all products that require sealed surfaces can be sealed well.
Gaskets can also be made of different materials, from rubber to stainless steel. The gasket will be cut out with a laser in order to achieve precision.

It is extremely important to consult your orthodontist on what the best treatment plan will be for your situation. In this video, you will learn what the differences are between clear braces and metal braces.
Clear braces can also be referred to as ceramic braces.

In terms of performance, clear braces are a bit more fragile. They are more likely to chip or break compared to metal braces. It should be noted, however, that the end result of braces, whether ceramic or metal, is the same.
In this video, you will learn about a hair transplant. The video discusses the ins and outs of hair transplants. Hair can grow from almost every part of our body. Hairs grow out of hair follicles and they can be as densely packed as 100 follicles.
But for men in particular, hair follicles can stop growing. Some of us spend an entire year in our lifetime working on our hair. The soles of our feet, our lips, and our palms are the places that don’t grow hair. As part of our natural life cycle, the hair follicles stop producing hair. This can be caused by a lot of different reasons. Hair follicles simply stop producing hair. A hormone decides to come along and switch them off. The follicles around the hairline and the top of the hair just gradually stop producing hair. Once the old hairs fall out, they will not grow back. In the 1950s, doctors learned that you can remove hair follicles from one place and simply install them into a different area. Surgeons would remove small patches of skin, and insert them into the hairless areas in a pattern. Keep watching this video to learn more information.
Have you ever heard of lobbying? It is something we hear about a lot when it comes to the government, and especially around election time. We might have a vague understanding of it, but it would do well for us to learn more about it.

The shelter has rolling doors and a safety lock so you don’t fall through it when you walk over it. He said when he bought the house he wasn’t sure why the shelter wasn’t level to the floor. He found out that is because you want the water to flow off the shelter, not go down there with you.
