Elocone – Special Order
Elocones are elongated nuts that can be used when an anchor rod doesn’t project high enough above the concrete foundation to attach a regular nut. By machining a piece of high-strength steel into two different sections, this special nut can attach to a shortened anchor rod.
The upper section resembles a standard nut that attaches to the column base or washer plate, while the lower section has a smaller diameter and fits the oversized hole of the base plate to screw on enough threads of the anchor rod.
To develop the tension capacity of an anchor made of steel with a tensile strength of 150 ksi (1,035 MPa), the Elocone nuts must be fastened to the anchor rod for a length equal to the diameter of the rod.
