Product Spotlight: Thomas & Betts Stainless Steel Solutions – Conduit and Fittings

Thomas & Betts Stainless Steel products are built to stand up to the harshest environments. Water, salt spray, sunlight, petroleum, chemicals and extreme temperatures are all destructive enemies that can have corrosive, degrading effects on your electrical systems. Protect your wiring with conduit, fittings, cable ties, metal framing, cable tray and accessories made from tough, durable, corrosion-resistant stainless steel.

Thomas & Betts (T&B) offers you the widest selection of stainless steel electrical system components – including many innovative, industry-exclusive products that save you time and money, reduce inventory and solve installation challenges.

Thanks to the growing demand for corrosion-resistant electrical components, T&B has expanded its line of Stainless Steel solutions including conduit and fittings. These products are ideal for food and beverage, pharmaceutical, petrochemical and wastewater processing applications, but can benefit anyone looking for corrosion-resistant solutions for electrical systems.

All T&B’s products in this expansion come in both Type 304 and marine-grade Type 316 stainless steel. Type 304 stainless steel lasts 5x as long as regular galvanized steel does in corrosive environments. Want more? Type 316 stainless steel lasts 8x as long!

New products include:

  • LU Universal Form 8 Conduit Bodies with Covers
  • Type 316 Stainless Steel Liquid Tight Fittings
  • Stainless Steel Drain Adaptor and Ball Valve
  • Type 304 and 316 Stainless Steel Elbows and Nipples

Stainless steel is one of the most hygienic materials and easy to clean. This is because its surface is not cracked or porous, so the chance of it trapping impurities is low. Not only are T&B’s products food and potable water safe, they exceed requirements for wash-down applications and satisfy plant-cleanliness mandates from HACCP, FDA and various state agencies. This is an essential trait to have in the food and beverage market. But regardless of your use for these products, it means less work and more ease of mind for you.

By offering their products in stainless steel, T&B ensures that you have a solution that is resistant to extreme corrosion in harsh environments. In addition to its strength and durability, stainless steel is easy to install and requires very little maintenance.  Their products meet ASTM A-321/SA-312 standards and are UL/cUL listed.

Product Spotlight: Thomas & Betts Liquidtight Fittings

The new generation of Quick-Connect™ Liquidtight Fittings from Thomas & Betts install up to three times faster than traditional liquidtight fittings.  T&B’s innovative two step push-in technology with a captive sealing ring makes this new line installation-ready — just push and tighten avoiding multiple steps and multiple parts. The new push-in technology is ideally suited for high-volume OEM applications and is compatible with both UL and UA type liquidtight.

In most electrical installations, critical electrical components are protected by a NEMA rated enclosure. These enclosures are like a fort, protecting the castle from any damage or exterior threats. Fittings play a key role in preventing liquids and dust from penetrating the enclosure and maintaining its appropriate NEMA rating.

The T&B Liquidtight fitting line is the end-all for liquidtight and dust-tight connections. You benefit from their expertise and the integrity that their liquidtight and dust-tight connections offer.  Fittings are available for a variety of conduit systems as well as portable cord.

T&B fittings and cable protection systems are made to the highest quality standards and can be specified to meet any customer requirements. If you need it a certain way, they can make it work for you.

Not only do T&B fittings meet the highest standards, but they also offer the largest and most technologically advanced liquidtight fittings in the industry.

Here is a quick overview on the materials and features of the T&B Liquidtight Fittings:

Available materials: Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum and non-metallic (PVC, Nylon and Thermoplatics)

See how T&B’s Quick-Connect™ Liquidtight Fittings install up to 3x faster:


No Moisture Pooling: The distinctive pumpkin-like (perfect for Halloween) appearance and unique gland nut on T&B Liquidtight fittings deflects water away from the connector and prevents pooling.

Double-Beveled Sealing: T&B Liquidtight fittings feature unique sealing mechanisms made from high-temperature rated thermoplastic in a distinctive blue coloring. The foolproof design prevents them from accidentally being installed backwards, and therefore, not as secure of a seal.

Infinitely Adjustable: You will save time and money with revolver grounding fittings that use an infinitely adjustable rotating ground lug.
