Who makes compression connectors that are UL listed for Aluminum rigid conduit?

I have to cut a Mogul C condulet into an old 3" run with about 390 degrees of bends.

TIA,
Mark

Mark, I can't give you a name right off the top of my head, but you can use steel fittings with the aluminum if you have no choice and are not in severe corrosive areas

Where practicable, dissimilar metals in contact anywhere in the system shall be avoided to eliminate the possibility of galvanic action. Aluminum fittings and enclosures shall be permitted to be used with steel RMC, and steel fittings and enclosures shall be permitted to be used with aluminum RMC where not subject to severe corrosive influences.
