MEMPHIS, Tenn., Mar. 09, 2012 – The T&B® Fittings High-/Low Temperature Liquidtight System from Thomas & Betts protects electrical cabling from moisture in extreme temperatures – from minus 60 to 150 degrees Celsius (minus 76 to 302 degrees Fahrenheit). The System combines high-temperature rated thermoplastic Liquidtight fittings and ATX Flexible Metal Conduit, which has a thermoplastic rubber jacket designed to withstand temperature extremes.
“The combination of Liquidtight fittings and ATX Flexible Metal Conduit make the T&B® Fittings High-/Low-Temperature Liquidtight System ideal for demanding environments,” said Tony Kolznak, product manager for Thomas & Betts. “The system provides reliable operation in industrial ovens, boilers and furnaces, kilns, and heavy machinery, as well as in sub-zero environments.”
The system includes HT Liquidtight Fittings, available in straight, 45-degree and 90-degree configurations, and ATX Flexible Liquidtight Conduit. All fittings in the system feature double-beveled sealing rings that are manufactured of high-temperature rated thermoplastic. ATX Flexible Metal Conduit is able to withstand extreme temperatures with its construction of a standard core and a thermoplastic rubber jacket. Containing no halogens, the thermoplastic material has a flammability rating of UL 98-HB.
Among the fittings’ other features are Safe-Edge® Ground Cones that are designed to provide superior bonding, stronger pullout, easy threading and conductor protection. Fittings for the T&B® Fittings High-/Low- Temperature Liquidtight System comply with UL 514B and are available in 53® Series Fitting design.
An optional Revolver® Grounding lug is available, which saves time by aligning in the preferred position. The tightening of the gland will secure the lug in place, saving installation time while avoiding tightening in an awkward position.
