Connection solution for long conduit runs

O-Z/Gedney tamper-proof expansion fitting prevents vandalism.

Rosemont, Ill., July 21, 2010—O-Z/Gedney, a supplier of fittings for electrical conduit, offers a connecting solution for long conduit runs installed in areas subject to vandalism, theft, harsh weather and wide temperature variations.

The AXB Expansion Fitting from O-Z/Gedney is used to permit linear movement in conduit runs caused by thermal expansion, therefore preventing conduit buckling or disconnection. It stands out in its incorporation of an internal bonding jumper that aids installation and maintenance by eliminating the need for an external jumper that could corrode or be tampered with by vandals. The corrosion-resistant, hot-dipped galvanized outer casing is rated watertight.

No disassembly is required during installation, so there are no parts to lose and far fewer tools are needed. The outer casing slides open to allow fast inspections of the jumper while in the field.

The fittings are available in trade sizes from 1/2 inch through 2 inch with 4 inch and 8 inch movement.
