    cable in conduit cable end seals

    what do you all use for end sealing cables, crouse hinds epoxy TSC? it isn't clearly labelled for this. what else is available?

    i'm talking about when you run cable capable of transmitting gases in rigid, don't open the jacket in the seal off but seal the cable end in the enclosure where it terminates.

    Are we talking about multiconductor cable in conduit?

      If you were running ONLY multiconductor cable such as TC-ER or MC-HL (no conduit) you could use the TSC Epoxy Sealing compound along with a TMCX connector. But since the cable is routed within conduit, I believe you'll to have to use a conduit seal - such as EYS - open the jacket/separate the conductors and apply Chico compound.

            The cable sheath is not the cable core - That’s why you need the EYS/Chico etc

                There is no approved UL sealant for multiconductor cable ends when installed in conduit - you need a tmcx for that

                          “Approved“ and “Approved Means” are not the same thing -
