Electrical supply houses and contractors interested in how to recondition or test and inspect the quality of recycled electrical conduit, fittings and accessories now have 40 technical standards to guide them thanks to the Professional Electrical Apparatus Recyclers League (PEARL), Aurora, Colo. PEARL’s conduit, fittings, and accessories standards include information on nipples, threaded couplings, elbows, liquid tight connectors, and outlets; wire and cable connectors; junction and pull boxes; reducers, hubs, fixture hangers; seals and sealing cement; and a variety of miscellaneous fittings.

Founded in 1997, PEARL is an electrical apparatus recycling trade association that creates, collects, and disseminates information, policies, procedures, and standards to ensure the proper recycling and reuse of electrical power equipment.
