New E-Coated XP Pipe Clamshell Fittings Enhancement

07/26/2013

Xpclamshell 07 13Franklin Fueling Systems is pleased to announce that we will be transitioning our complete lineup of APT™ brand XP Pipe clamshell fittings to include an upgraded e-coated clamp.

The new e-coated clamps give each fitting full corrosion resistance from gas/alcohol blends (including E85), diesel and biodiesel.

Each of the following clamshell fitting types will incorporate this e-coated clamp:

  • Swivel fittings
  • Non-swivel fittings
  • Tee and elbow fittings
  • Quick release fittings

The e-coating process involves electrostatically bonding paint to a metal surface. E-coating also has seven times the durability of conventional galvanized and/or zinc coatings.

Over the next few months Franklin will be making the transition to this new e-coated clamp for all sizes of XP Pipe clamshell fittings, starting immediately with 1½” size fittings. We expect full transition of all other sizes to be complete by early 2014. During this time, you may receive orders containing both e-coated and painted fittings. Franklin Fueling Systems will not accept trade-ins of painted fittings for e-coated fittings.

Please contact Franklin Fueling Systems Customer Service at +1-800-984-6266 if you have any questions regarding pricing or the enhancement of this product.
