- Conduits/Conduit electrical are tubings used for protecting electrical wires. 25mm Conduit is used for general applications where wires need mechanical protection.Electrical wires that give power to a house or a building are enclosed and protected by conduits, which are tubings. The Conduit serves as a channel for one or more cables and comprises plastic, steel, galvanized steel, nylon, PVC, PP, and steel spring wire. A type of tube called a cable conduit offers neat management, protection, support, and structure for cables and wires. An electrical cable conduit is ideal for wires that must be protected while exposed in an open area, underground, or through walls.
Types of ConduitsWhen we mention electrical Conduit, we're referring to the physical passageways you make to run wiring inside a structure. They help to protect and direct wire.If you're an electrician. You may use a variety of conduit types.When discussing different kinds of electrical conduits, acronyms and words like "rigid" and "flexible" are frequently used. The most popular forms of Conduit are broken down below.Electrical ConduitFlexible ConduitMetal ConduitThese three headings are further subdivided into types of conduits as explained below:IMC - Intermediate Metal Conduit is a sleeker, lighter form of RMC that has been toned down. Despite being thinner, it is frequently accepted for the same uses as RMC. Electricians prefer IMC when given a choice between the two products because of how much simpler it is to handle due to its smaller weight.RMC - Rigid Metal Conduit is one of the most durable kinds of electrical Conduit and is made of galvanized steel. It offers exceptional protection from environmental and physical harm as an outdoor-friendly conduit. Boxes, cables, and other electrical equipment can also be supported by it.EMT - Electrical Metallic Tubing is simple to bend and twist because the metal tube is thinner. When installing EMT, you use a conduit bender to bend itwithout kinking. All you need to cut it is a small or 12V reciprocating saw with a high TPI blade.FMC - Flexible Metal Conduit has a distinctive spiral shape that makes it easier to flex over short distances than EMT. Adding Conduits in constrained places or around existing equipment provides a significant advantage.LFMC - Liquid- Tight Flexible Metal Conduit is comparable to FMC but has a waterproofing covering. It is ideal for exterior applications and damp interior spaces and needs watertight fittings. It is typically fastened in a threaded style and used in wet areas.ENT - Electrical Non-Metallic Tubing is a section of flexible PVC tubing that resembles a pool hose. It can be used in place of EMT, run behind walls, beneath floors, and enclosed in concrete. The leading ENT maker utilizes materials with a 2-hour fire resistance rating. ENT cannot be used in areas where it will be exposed to UV rays because it is not UV-resistant.Rigid PVC is heated before being bent. In the field, a heat gun can be used as an alternative to the heater box that is often used to achieve it. When appropriately installed, rigid PVC is watertight and has the same properties as water pipe as a conduit.
