PE & BIG BLUE PE CONDUIT:
Electron Beam’s Blue PE and Big Blue PE Conduits
are designed for soft electrodes and mild steel electrode
used at high deposition rates. These non-conductive
conduits are lightweight, making them useful for many
wire feeding applications.
See chart at right for lengths.
Fitting termination is easily applied by the distributor
or end user by cutting to length with a sharp knife
or razor and applying the appropriate bayonet.
Blue PE Conduit:
Recommended for use with soft
solid welding electrodes up to 3/64” (1.2mm) diameter
and other midrange mild steel electrodes. It is not
recommended to bend it less than a 12” (30.5cm)
radius. Tighter bends may result in increased wire drag
and conduit wear.
Big Blue PE Conduit: Recommended for use
with soft solid welding electrodes up to 1/16”
(1.6mm) diameter and other comparably sized mild steel
electrodes. It is not recommended to bend it less than
a 16” (40.6cm) radius. Tighter bends may result
in increased wire drag and conduit wear.
PE & BIG BLUE PE CONNECTORS & ACCESSORIES
PE & Big Blue PE Bayonets
directly onto the conduit. The bayonet cuts its
own thread as it is twisted onto the conduit.
Provides a strong, rapid connection to an extensive
line of Connectors and Adaptor Kits.
PE Compression Bayonet Assembly
of a Ferrule, reusable Compression Nut, and
Bayonet. The assembly slides over the conduit
while wrenching to provide compressive retention.
For rapid connection to an extensive line of
Connectors and Adaptor Kits.
Connector with Optional ERC® Bayonet:
compressive retention to Big Blue PE Conduit,
giving a bayonet connection. This combination
provides rapid connection to an extensive line
of Connectors and Adaptor Kits. Without the optional
bayonet, a 1/2” NPT male connection is exposed
for custom connection.
conduits are easily cut to length with a sharp
knife or razor.
Made from high density polyethylene with outstanding
mechanical properties and inherent lubricity. No metal
core is used in the manufacture of these conduits which
is ideal for obtaining x-ray quality welds. Especially
useful when welding with aluminum or other exotics,
as no metal is available to contaminate the weld. The
hard polymer interior reduces drag and promotes smooth

a Strain Relief and QCI Insulator:
Relief reinforces heavily flexed
areas of the conduit and terminations where
repetitive flexing may be an issue. Strain Relief
may be factory installed or added during your
installation and is available in a 1-3/32”
(27.7mm) I.D. x 12” (0.3m) and 48”
Insulator over any exposed metal connection
to reduce the possibility of short circuits and
