electrical condui

Electrical wiring within the confines of most households is typically threaded through a conduit. This conduiting of electricity is implemented for the purpose of safeguarding and fleetingly managing such electric currents. Consequently, when installing or repairing such cabling, it is imperative to adopt the precise conduit type and size along with the wire employed.

Consumers have several options for electrical conduit. A popular selection is rigid metal conduit, crafted from either galvanized steel or aluminum. Rounding out its impressive versatility, it can be purchased in sizes ranging from -inch to 6-inches. However, when using RMC, it is important to select the appropriate diameter as a conduit that is too small may not adequately guard the electrical wires while a conduit that is too large can be more challenging to install.

If your wiring needs to go through unusually tight spots, then Flexible Metal Conduit, or FMC, can be your go-to. It’s manufactured from pliable metal tubing, so you can easily slip it through tight crevices. You can locate it in sizes ranging anywhere from a quarter inch to four inches in diameter.

Plastic conduit is yet another selection for circuitry and is obtainable in multiple sizes and models of its own. Rigid PVC conduit, Flexible PVC conduit, and Electrical Metallic Tubing (EMT) are three of the most widespread shapes you’ll come across. PVC conduit is composed of a long-lasting synthetic material and comes in over four diameters ranging from half an inch all the way up to four inches wide. For Flexible PVC conduit, the tubing is adapted to be malleable and comes in sizes from a quarter of an inch to two inches in width. Lastly, EMT is constructed from a firm metal tube that can be obtained in sizes between three quarters of an inch up to four inches across.

As part of the electrical conduit installation process, the correct type of featured must be used. Rigid metallic conduit (RMC) fittings have threads that attach them to the conduit via threaded connections. Flexible metallic conduit (FMC) require compression fittings which are joined together with a ferrule. Electromagnetic conduit (EMT) set-screw type fittings are secured with set screws. And finally, polyvinyl chloride pipe (PVC) fittings can be either welded or screwed onto the pipe using respectively corresponding methods.

When it comes to plumbing in electrical conduit, it is vital to strictly adhere to all applicable construction codes. The conduit must be kept a specific distance from other construction materials, like wood framing, as a precaution against fire. Additionally, it is essential to affix the conduit securely every four feet when standing upright and every ten feet when horizontal to forestall any possible structural harm and dodge expensive repairs down the road.

Electrical wiring simply cannot function without conduit, and making sure the correct type and size is installed or mended is of utmost importance. From rigid metal conduction to plastic conduit, a host of varieties are available for purchase. Following local building codes is an absolute must. In short, electrical conduit is an absolutely essential component of any wiring system.
