Wheatland Tube expands electrical portfolio with two new products
CHICAGO (March 2, 2015) — Wheatland Tube, a division of JMC Steel Group, has added two new electrical products to its portfolio: SmartSet EMT with a built-in set screw coupling and the SpeedCouple pre-installed swivel coupling. The new electrical metallic tubing and coupling products offer electrical contractors cost-effective, efficient solutions for electrical raceway installations.
SmartSet EMT features a built-in set screw coupling that eliminates the need to purchase, inventory and install separate couplings — which can increase productivity and reduce project costs. SmartSet EMT is available in 10- and 20-foot lengths and in nine easy-to-identify colors.
SpeedCouple is a pre-installed swivel coupling that features easy lead-in tapered threads to offer optimal performance for tight spots, saddles, offsets, trenches and duct banks. SpeedCouple can save up to 50 percent in material costs when compared to standard three-piece couplings. And because contractors can simply turn the coupling to connect two pieces of conduit together, SpeedCouple reduces installation time. SpeedCouple is available for 10- and 20-foot DuraGuard rigid, intermediate metal conduit and elbows, in trade sizes 2–5.
“Wheatland Tube continues to evolve its product offering to help the electrical contractor reduce costs and make electrical raceway installations easier. We are excited to introduce these two new products into the marketplace for our end-user customers,” said Jim Hays, president of the Wheatland Tube electrical division.
