Knowing When To Use A Liquid Tight Conduit

Mar. 28, 2019

A conduit can be particularly helpful in making installation of electric cables easier and less expensive, but when it comes to protection of the cable or wiring that's installed in these conduits, some of them, such as the Liquid Tight Conduit, are absolutely necessary. Some installations, in fact, make it mandatory to use these conduits. A number of these conduits are so specialized that it becomes necessary at times to know which of their conduits are a much better match to be used in certain environmental and material problems. In a few of the programs, the liquid tight conduit is going to be an ideal fit.

Liquid Tight Conduit

Moist Environments

In environments where moisture and water are likely to be present and where tight connections against moisture intrusion is desired or needed, this type of Flexible Metal Conduit works well, especially when it is combined with liquid tight fittings.

Use in Corrosive Environments

Those users who require a Flexible Conduit in a corrosive or damp environment will find the liquid tight conduit to be an ideal product. This may be especially true where condensers for air conditioning units and electric motor connections are used.

External Applications

Where conduit is to be installed in external applications, Liquid Tight Flexible Metal Conduit can be used. Its outer sheathing, which is composed of PVC and includes stabilizers made of carbon black, make it resistant to UV, and, therefore, suitable for use in external applications.
