How to Choose the Right Electrical Conduit: Armaflo Tips
Certain electrical systems call for a specific conduit system. In the following steps, we share some simple advice on making the right choice from the beginning:
Know your application: When choosing an electrical conduit, it’s essential to know the application for its fitting. Your specific application will not only dictate the material of the fitting, but also the specific features you need to stay legally compliant. Staying compliant brings an added benefit in that you can proceed in confidence that your installation has been conducted properly, ensuring both quality and safety.
Know Your Materials: Electrical conduits typically come in a wide variety of materials, ranging from galvanised steel and nickel-plated brass to nylon and die cast zinc. When choosing your electrical conduit, try to think about its materials, its design and its suitability for the job you’re working on, as well as the influences in your environment like oil, salt water and common solvents.
Know Your Size: If you don’t have vernier calipers to hand, you can use a simple ruler to measure conduit and enclosure openings to the accuracy of a millimeter. Getting the size right is really important in that it can guarantee leak-proof connections, saving you significant costs in wanted repair and replacement work. At Armaflo, our team is on-hand to help out with this part of your electrical conduit selection!

Regardless of your needs, Armaflo provides a free consultation service to ensure you have every conduit accessory you need, ranging from dome covers & support clips to couplers, end boxes and crampets.
