  • Patent number: 10989350
    Abstract: A fastener for connecting a coated conduit to a fitting comprises: a locking nut having a first end, a second end, and internal threading extending between the first end and the second end; a gasket formed at the first end of the locking nut by coating the locking nut with a polymeric material; and a flexible sleeve extending from the second end of the locking nut that is formed by coating the locking nut with the polymeric material. The internal threading of the locking nut is threaded onto exposed threading of the coated conduit such that the flexible sleeve fits over a circumference of the coated conduit and the gasket forms a sealed connection with the fitting when the exposed threading of the coated conduit is connected to the fitting.

  • Patent number: 10982799
    Abstract: A seal-off fitting for a conduit system includes a conduit body defining an inner cavity, at least one conduit port adapted to receive a conduit, and at least one threaded sealing port. The seal-off fitting further includes a threaded seal-off cover engageable with the sealing port, a first coating applied to at least a portion of the conduit body, and a second coating applied to at least of portion of the seal-off cover. At least a portion of the threads of the sealing port and at least a portion of the threads the seal-off cover remain uncoated, with the uncoated threads of the sealing port and the uncoated threads of the seal-off cover defining a flame path for flue gases exiting the conduit body.

  • Patent number: 10951015
    Abstract: A joint fitting for an electrical conduit raceway may include a body including a first end and a second opposing end, at least one threaded section provided in the first end or the second end, at least one non-threaded section provided between the at least one threaded section and the corresponding first end or second end, the at least one non-threaded section defining a channel, and a sealing member positioned within the channel. Upon a radial compressive force being applied to the sealing member, at least a portion of the sealing member may protrude or extend from a terminal surface of the corresponding first end or second end.

  • Publication number: 20210060663
    Abstract: A tool for removing a coating from an end of a coated conduit comprising a metallic conduit having an outer diameter and a polymeric material applied over the outer diameter thereof is provided. The tool comprises: a guide member having an outer diameter sized to fit within an internal diameter of the metallic conduit; and a cylindrical cutting member having a substantially closed first end rotatably connected to an arbor, a substantially open second end, and a plurality of teeth elements. The cylindrical cutting member has an inner diameter that is substantially equal to the outer diameter of the metallic conduit such that when the cylindrical cutting member is rotated, the teeth elements remove the polymeric material from the outer diameter of the metallic conduit.
