RACO, part of Hubbell Commercial Construction, has recently introduced its 3-piece coupling that connects threaded conduit to threaded or unthreaded conduit. RACO provides electrical products to commercial and residential markets.
RACO’s new fitting couples threaded rigid/IMC conduit to either threaded or unthreaded rigid/IMC or EMT conduit. Inside the unit, a universal compression ring secures the conduit. The Super Coupling doesn’t need to be disassembled and the conduit doesn’t need to be turned. Usually field threading or turning conduit is a tedious and time-consuming process required for traditional three-piece couplings.
The compact Super Coupling makes installation easier in limited spaces and is also lighter than traditional malleable iron 3-piece couplings. The zinc-plated steel fitting is UL Listed Concrete-tight. The new fitting is available in four sizes, ranging from 2-1/2″ to 4.”
