What are the best emt tubing thickness

Deciding on the optimal EMT tube thickness demands a few considerations. To begin, the intended application must be taken into account: for high-pressure systems, a sturdier option is required, whereas a thin-walled product may be suitable for low-pressure systems.

When it comes to choosing the right tubing material, permanence and toughness should be top priorities. After all, selecting a material that is non-resilient runs the risk of cracking or shattering when exposed to high pressure – an outcome that no one wants. Therefore, carefully weigh all options to determine which one can remain steadfast under the intended conditions.

Ensuring that the tube can withstand difficult conditions, like extreme temperatures or corrosive substances, should be part of the contemplation process. An appropriate selection of tubing that will provide increased robustness is essential in these circumstances.

When crunching numbers, it is essential to think about price-tag. Selecting thicker-walled tubing usually comes at a higher cost compared to thinner-walled tubes, so it is sensible to weigh your options and stick to your budget.

After assessing all the necessary factors, here are the most appropriate EMT tubing thicknesses that can ensure optimal performance:

Heavy-duty tasks should be addressed with Schedule 80 and its equivalents, while lighter loads will fare well with Schedule 40 and below. Meanwhile, stainless steel, aluminum, or brass can be utilized when the environment is of high hostility, whereas Schedule 40 employs a cost-effective approach.
