Press release date: September 27, 2011

Provides Flexible, Watertight Connections
Features Durable Stainless Steel Inner Sleeve

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The T&B® Fitting XD Expansion/Deflection Coupling for Rigid Conduit from Thomas & Betts supports movement and thermal expansion in conduit runs, providing a flexible and watertight connection. The coupling incorporates an Erickson® conduit union that reduces installation time and effort, and a durable, protective stainless-steel inner sleeve that facilitates wire installation. The coupling accommodates axial or parallel movement up to three-quarter inch, and angular movement up to 30 degrees from the normal position.

"The stainless-steel inner sleeve used in the T&B® Fitting XD Expansion/Deflection Coupling is far more durable than the conventional plastic tubes or corrugated hose found in other couplings of this kind," said Bogdan Diaconescu, product manager for Thomas & Betts. "It also provides better protection and easier wire pulling." The T&B® Fitting XD Expansion/Deflection Coupling features include enclosed, copper ground mounting plates that are secured with tamperproof stainless-steel jacket straps to impede vandalism and theft. The coupling has dual-layer hubs made of ductile cast iron, zinc plated and coated with aluminum acrylic paint for corrosion protection.

The T&B® Fitting XD Expansion/Deflection Coupling is UL Listed to UL 514B and is CSA Certified to C22.2 No. 18.3 Suitable for Wet Locations (for hub sizes one inch to six inches). It also is watertight pursuant to NEMA 4 and is NEC Article 250.98 compliant.
