Conduits are employed to be able to earn the installation of electric wires simpler. However, so as to reap the extra benefit of security for cables and wires, it's vital to understand which conduit to utilize for a particular program. Sometimes, the maker issues recommendations for setup. For some of the next applications/situations listed beneath or from the absence of manufacturer's recommendations, it is going to serve you to use a Liquid Tight Conduit.
Liquid tight conduits are perfect for use in environments that are most likely to get moist or wet. Used in conjunction with liquid tight fittings, this conduit can keep moisture at bay.If the application requires the use of liquid tight fittings with these conduits, make sure that the fittings are threaded onto the connection or,
alternatively, use a junction box.
This type of Flexible Metal Conduit can also be used in applications wherein the wires/cables may be exposed to corrosive elements. One example of such an application is using this conduit for condensers of air conditioning units.
Use this type of conduit if you are installing wires or cables for external applications. Specifically, you should use a metal version of this conduit which has a PVC outer sheathing as well as stabilizers that give added protection against the elements, including the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
Liquid Tight Flexible Metal Conduit also offer ample protection against dust and some types of liquids. On top of that, these conduits have a high amount of mechanical strength, making them the better option when making a secure connection is essential.
