Franklin Fueling Sets An Industry First With Weekly, Let’s Be Frank podcasts!
Hosted by Kali Kinziger, Let’s Be Frank podcasts are perfect to introduce newbies to the petroleum equipment industry; from the latest products, new technology, install and maintenance tips and tricks to brushing up on the latest industry trends.
In the premier episode Kali talks with Allan Busch, Franklin Fueling Systems Piping and Containment and Wire Management Systems Product Manager as to how Cable Tight™ is changing the game for electrical and data wire conduit and what people have to say about the electrofusion welding process.
In episode two, Kali sits down with Nicole Keppy, Franklin Fueling Systems Service Station Hardware Product Manager to chat about how spill containment and overfill prevention valves (OPV) work and what the new UST regulations mean for your existing equipment.
The John W. Kennedy Company appreciates your business and continued support!
Franklin Fueling Systems is on a tear at the moment as they launch new products and now a line of products under the Cable TightTM brand. The Cable TightTM wire management system boasts the ability to provide a true watertight end-to-end solution for electrical, sensor, and data wire management. Like Franklin’s UPP products, it is an electrofusion welding installation process that creates one seamless system from the HDPE-constructed electrical conduit, entry seals to sumps.
Highly Flexible, Highly Durable
Available in 3/4″ and 1″ in rolls of 1000′ and 1500′ coils, Cable TightTM ‘s highly durable and corrosion resistant materials won’t crack if bent, shatter if hit with a tool or stepped on in cold weather installations after it’s been laid out on a busy job site.
Along with a plethora of configurations, options, tools and information, you’ll find everything you need to get the job done in nearly the same time it takes to install PVC conduit. Franklin has not only created a Cable Tight System website that includes videos and downloads but you can also find Cable Tight under the new Wire Management section of the Franklin Fueling website.

Check out this new installation guide video from Franklin’s FFS Pro University, focusing on electrofusion welding for UPP piping, going through the entire process, including measuring, cutting, scraping, cleaning, marking, clamping, welding, and cooling:
The Electrofusion Entry Seal welds the pipe and chamber together. When the welding is done correctly, the parts become one homogeneous piece. There is no need and it is NOT recommended to add any sealant to the welded joints after the weld is completed. Sealant will only make it more difficult to repair if there is an issue with the weld. Any sealant is temporary and could possibly mask a problem with the weld. Franklin Fueling Systems does not support using sealant of any kind on the electrofusion weld seals or fittings.
Electrofusion Entry Seals must follow the welding steps as outlined in Franklin Fueling Systems manual 408001007 for Electrofusion Welding Instructions. Failure to follow our install instructions puts you at risk of a faulty unreliable weld.
Electrofusion fittings can be re-welded: The fitting must be fully cool and continuity must remain in the heating coil wires. Contact Franklin Fueling System Technical Support for re-welding instructions.
ALL entries into sumps and chambers must be perpendicular to entry face.
Sealants should never be used to do repairs on electrofusion welded joints.
Screws, rivets or other mechanical fasteners should never be used on these fittings.
If there is a leak after the fitting is installed, contact Franklin Fueling Systems Technical Support.
