Liquid Ingress Protection
Liquid exposure is a given in pulp and paper processing
due to the wet nature of the operations, from pulping
to slurry.
When specifying electrical systems for pulp and paper
processing facilities, consider the following issues
relating to liquid exposure:
• Liquid ingress can deteriorate or short out an electrical
system immediately or over time
• Electrical system components designed with round
surfaces help to shed liquids and contaminants,
rather than creating a shelf where they can collect
Thomas & Betts offers you electrical system solutions
that protect against liquid, moisture and dust ingress.

Weatherproof While-in-Use Covers
• “Extra-duty” metallic weatherproof while-in-use covers
• Alloy A380 aluminum and stainless steel springs
for increased corrosion resistance and durability
PVC-Coated Type 4X Form 8
Conduit Bodies
• UL
Listed Type 4X and NEMA 4X rating for excellent
protection in wet or high-pressure washdown areas,
as well as harsh outdoor environments
• Stainless steel encapsulated cover screws can be
hand-tightened — using only 15 in-lbs of torque —
to achieve the 4X watertight rating
• Double coated for superior corrosion protection
Liquidtight Conduit Fittings
• Provide a water- and oil-tight seal where flexible
metal conduit enters a box or enclosure
• Rounded gland nut deflects water from connector
• Continuous sealing ring ensures a liquidtight seal
• Available in straight, 45° and 90° angled versions
Type A Liquidtight Flexible Non-Metallic
Conduit and Fittings
• Create a liquid-, dust- and oil-tight seal
• Ideal for continuous flexing applications
• Suitable for operating temperatures from -20° to 60° C
• Fittings available in non-burning, non-dripping
thermoplastic, steel and stainless steel materials
