O-Z/Gedney EYD Sealing Fittings Let Contractors Just 'Pour and Ignore'
SKOKIE, IL, December 5, 2002 To simplify the sealing and draining of vertical conduit runs in hazardous locations, O-Z/Gedney offers its Type EYD Vertical Drain/Seal Fittings, threaded for rigid conduit or IMC. The patented design eliminates the need for a rubber hose to create a drain path through the sealing compound. And contractors don't need to wait for compound hardening. They just build a fiber dam and pour in the sealing compound until it overflows. When the compound stops flowing through the drain opening, the contractor simply removes the temporary thread protector, installs the drain/breather and the job is done. Installation is foolproof, appreciated by electricians and inspectors alike. Drain/Seal fittings minimize the passage of vapors and gases and prevent the passage of flames from one portion of a conduit system to another, while draining any accumulating moisture above the seal. Available in trade sizes from 1/2-inch to 4-inch, Type EYD fittings are precision cast in malleable iron with an optional hot dip galvanized finish. The fittings are UL Listed and CSA Certified for hazardous locations with O-Z/Gedney Type EYC or Crouse Hinds CHICO compounds, and are suitable for use in wet locations.
