Electrical conduits available from EC&M Electrical include their UF, RF, HF, EF, and SF varieties.
Manufactured from PVC with a co-extruded spiral of hard thermoplastic, UF electrical conduit is highly flexible and a true workhorse. UF electrical conduit is resistant to a wide range of oils and chemicals, as well as being UV stable. Suitable applications for UF electrical conduit include:
- domestic; and
- use with with machinery where flexibility strength and a rating of IP65 is required.
Made from polymide, HF electrical conduits are a highly flexible, non-metallic and halogen-free (HF), rated from -30°C to 100°C (150°C intermittent). HF electrical conduit is primarily used in transport system and tunnel work, where fire may cause a leak of acid gases posing a threat to passengers or workers. Thanks to it's flexibility at low temperatures, HF electrical conduits can be used in applications such as freezers and cold stores.
A metallic, liquid tight conduit, made to US standards and dimensions, the EF electrical conduit features a square locked, cord packed, steel core, and a smooth, key-locked PVC jacket. EF electrical conduit will provide protection to IP67 and is ideal for heavy industrial applications such as those in:
- power plants
- metal works; and
Unsheathed applications for SF electrical conduits include:
- beneath raised floors of computer rooms
- as mechanical protection for security applications; and
- around hot areas of furnaces and burners.
- sheet glass machinery
- security cameras; and
- sheet metal machinery.
