Providing a soil-tight/water-tight joint, Tylox® XT flexible connectors save you operating time and money by:

  •  Reducing the potential for environmental hazards and clean-up due to ex-filtration
  •  Reducing the chances for ground-water contamination due to ex-filtration
  •  Reducing “clean-outs” of soil ingress due to infiltration
  •  Reduction of downstream waste-water processing requirements due to infiltration

Materials and Identification

Tylox™ XT connectors are manufactured from synthetic rubber compounds, to meet the material requirements of ASTM C923. Connectors are available for “Standard” or “Oil-resistant” applications. Oil-resistant connectors will have an orange dot on the rubber molding. Other materials and specifications may be available as custom order.

Please consult your Hamilton Kent representative regarding your specific requirement.

Pressure Rating

Tylox® XT connectors are designed for soil-tight connections, and low-head (6psig) watertight connections.

MSDS

Tylox® XT connectors are not WHIMIS listed.

Tylox® XT connectors are made from cross-linked, polymeric rubber, which is not considered a health hazard. As with any rubber product, the connector may smolder or burn when exposed to a naked flame. Fire-fighters should wear self-contained, positive-pressure, or pressure-demand, breathing apparatus; and utilize water-spray, air-foam, dry chemical or CO2 type extinguishing media.

Storage and Handling

Proper care of the connector prior to installation will ensure maximum ease of installation and maximum sealing properties of the connector.

Connectors must not be stored near any electrical equipment that produces ozone.

All connectors must be protected from harmful substance such as dirt, mud, dust and grit.

All connectors, other than oil-resistant connectors, must be protected from contact with solvents and petroleum based greases and oils.
