In most cases, people get used to classify different conduit types by the wall thickness, mechanical stiffness and conduit materials. In the current steel pipe market, there are various types of steel conduits are chosen for mechanical protection, corrosion resistance and some other purposes in applications. Galvanized steel pipes provide very good protection to enclosed conductors from impact, moisture, and chemical vapors for many years.
Galvanized steel conduit as one common type of steel conduit has been widely used in wire system project today. In most cases, Galvanized steel conduit offers excellent protection for the electrical wires that are run through them. Both types of piping are designed for indoor, outdoor and underground applications. In addition, GRC conduit is a raceway solution which allows for future wiring changes and delivers remarkable mechanical protection to conductors and cables. As a rule, steel conduit made from galvanized steel pipe is commonly referred as a rigid conduit. The thickness of a galvanized rigid conduit protects the electrical wiring from being hit and allows it to be threaded. Galvanized rigid conduits are used by electricians in commercial and industrial applications normally available in 10 feet and 20 feet lengths. This type of electrical conduit is used above grade and has threads on both ends.
Galvanized steel pipe is such a typical electrical conduit that is a tube used to protect and route electrical wiring in a building or non-building structure for many years. In the current steel pipe market, pre galvanized steel pipes are very popular and cost-effective in wire systems. In most cases, pre galvanized steel pipes come in different styles from fairly strong construction to extremely rigid conduit that you could actually drive over without damaging it. And also the size of the wire may vary, depending on the amount of amperage needed to supply the point you are feeding, and this ultimately determines the size of the conduit that you will need to install. Pre galvanized steel pipe is also a good choice for exposed walls in basements, garages, outbuildings, and areas the conduit can be hit or damaged.
In the current steel pipe market, galvanized steel pipe are still popular among users because galvanized steel pipe has more powerful function of anti-corrosion and high temperature resistance in the wire systems. Besides, there are a couple of common types of conduit pipe in the current market, including PVC conduit, Rigid Metal Conduit (RMC) / Rigid Steel Conduit (RSC), Intermediate Metal Conduit (IMC), Galvanized Rigid Conduit and so all. Specifically, PVC conduit is often used in underground and wet location applications. This type of conduit has its own PVC fittings, connectors, couplings, and elbows.
