Condux Duct Rodders combine ease of operation and reliable performance to help increase the efficiency of your rodding operations.
Our Duct Rodder cages have been designed to be lighter weight for easy handling in the field. They feature sturdy construction and a hand-operated wheel brake. They can be used on their side as well as upright. 30″ (762 mm) and 45″ (1,143 mm) cages come with flotation wheels for added mobility. Cage sizes are matched to suit the rod you order.
Three Types of Rod
We offer three types of duct rod: Cobra®, Python®, and Mini-Cobra®. Each has a glass-reinforced composite core jacketed in a rugged plastic coating to ensure long life. All three have excellent flexural strength, compressive strength, fatigue resistance, and memory. They also have favorable electrical and thermal properties that make them safe for use in the cable-occupied duct. They are suitable for pulling back winch lines or small-diameter cables.
COBRA®: Cobra is our highest quality rod, designed for heavy-duty applications. It gets its extra strength from a unique construction process that ensures greater rigidity and strength, enabling it to endure the additional force required for long duct runs with multiple bends and sweeps. A braided wrap of reinforcing fibers increases its rigidity and helps bond the core with the outer plastic coating. The coating is made from a polymer blend for greater toughness and superior abrasion resistance to ensure extra-long life. Includes one male and one female end fitting, and a tapered head.
PYTHON®: Our Python rod is best suited for less demanding applications. It has strength properties similar to our Cobra rod, but is more flexible. Also, like the Cobra, it has a heavy-duty outer plastic coating to resist abrasions and reduce wear. Includes one male and one female end fitting, and a tapered head.
MINI-COBRA®: Our Mini-Cobra rod includes our 3/16″ (5 mm) and 1/4″ (6 mm) diameter rods used primarily for smaller duct sizes and shorter runs. The rod has the same flexibility and strength features as our Python rod and comes wound in 16″ (406 mm) and 24″ (610 mm) cages in 50′ (25 m) to 600′ (200 m) lengths. Includes two male end fittings and two tapered heads.
End Fittings Included Condux Duct Rodders come equipped with a threaded end fitting on each end, and a tapered head on the outward end. Condux offers a number of optional end-fitting accessories for additional applications.
