GY MOLD

Description

Cadweld GY Mold

For through cable connections to the side of ground rods, there has never been a faster or easier way to make a reliable CADWELD® connection. The two-piece CADWELD GY mold lets you make connections in a trench in about half the time it would take with compression connections or other exothermic connections and at a fraction of the cost.

CADWELD GY molds are simple to use and provide for easy cable alignment. The molds include a baffle mold cover that reduces emissions and extends handle clamp life.

Features

  • Ergonomic two-piece molds use standard L160 and L159 handle clamps – the same clamps you use with other CADWELD® molds
  • Saves labor costs. A GY connection can be made by one person in about one minute – much faster than other methods
  • Simple to use
  • Easy cable alignment
  • Includes a new baffle mold cover which reduces emissions and extends the handle clamp life
  • Available with wear plates
