Galvan Offers Prompt Delivery On Aluminum And Copper Split Bolts In Variety Of Conductor Ranges

HARRISBURG, NC - Galvan Electrical Products is offering prompt delivery on its broad inventory of UL 486A-compliant aluminum, copper and dual-rated split bolts and two-bolt taps for assembling solid connections.

The company offers K Type split bolts for copper-to-copper connections, tin-plated with spacer S Type bolts for use with copper, aluminum and ACSR conductors and aluminum dual-rated split bolt connectors compatible with both copper and aluminum joinings.

Galvan ensures high contact pressure and extended service life by using high-strength, corrosion-resistant copper and aluminum alloys in its split bolt designs. Both the K and S split bolt series feature alloy copper construction, UL listing and CSA certification.

Where heavy-duty connections demand use of copper conductors only, Galvan supplies bronze two-bolt taps. Their swiveling caps simplify installation; to prevent loss of parts, the taps come with a rubber retainer washer. A flat back makes these two-bolt models an ideal bus tap for longer bolts.

Galvan Industries is a major manufacturer of copper-clad, hot-dip galvanized and stainless steel ground rods and ancillary electrical products. The first hot-dip galvanizing operation in the Carolinas, the company has grown to become the largest capacity contract galvanizer in the Southeast.
