Thomas & Betts
Thomas & Betts introduced T&B Fittings Stainless Steel Liquidtight Conduit Connectors to meet the demand for conduit fittings that function well in heavily corrosive environments. The connector's body and gland nut are constructed of stainless steel, offering the corrosion resistance of non-metallic fittings and the strength, durability and ultraviolet resistance of conventional metallic fittings.
Designed to connect metallic-cored liquidtight conduit to a box or enclosure, T&B's new connectors are available in straight, 45-degree and 90-degree configurations in sizes to fit conduit from 3/8 inch to 2 inches. The line's UL-listed ratings are 3, 3R, 4 and 4X. The line is also CSA listed.
Connectors in sizes of 3/8 to 1 inch offer a steel ground cone with a Dura-Plate finish, which offers six times the comparative resistance to salt spray per ASTM B-117 of standard plating. Connectors in sizes of 1-1/4 to 2 inches offer a brass ground cone plated with nickel.
Sealing Ring Gaskets (5262 Series), available separately, include a stainless steel retaining ring to prevent elongation of the gasket and are made of Advanced Elastomer Systems L.P.'s Santoprene, which is said to ensure a superior seal. Stainless steel and standard locknuts also are available separately.
