Conduit Fittings Overview
An electrical conduit is a purpose-designed electrical piping system used for protection and routing of electrical wiring. Flexible conduit is available for special purposes. Conduit is generally installed by electricians at the site of installation of electrical equipment. Its use, form, and installation details are often specified by wiring regulations, such as the U.S. NEC or other national or local code.
Some common types of conduits are; Rigid Metal Conduit (RMC),Rigid Nonmetallic Conduit (RNC),Galvanized rigid conduit (GRC),Electrical metallic tubing (EMT),Electrical Nonmetallic Tubing (ENT),Flexible Metallic Conduit (FMC), Armored Cable (Type AC), and Metallic-Clad (Type MC) Cable, Liquid tight Flexible Metal Conduit (LFMC) and Flexible Metallic Tubing (FMT).
Materials most commonly used for conduits include plastic stainless steel coated with zinc and aluminum. They may also be made of fibre and fired clay.
Countries involved in the manufacturing of conduit fittings include China, Indonesia, Taiwan, India, Hong Kong, South Korea, Malaysia, United Kingdom, United States, Thailand and Turkey.
Major export markets consist of continents like Oceania, Africa, Mid East, Eastern Asia, Eastern Europe, Western Europe and North and South America.
Light resistant, light weight, age-resistant, flexible applicability in dry, humid, internal and external installation, water resistant are some of the major selling features for conduit fittings.
Newly developed conduit fittings are even insect and mouse proof along with being corrosion resistant as well.
