Nov. 17, 2016 – AutomationDirect now offers liquid-tight flexible electrical conduit in steel and non-metallic styles and in 3/8-in. to two-in. sizes.
The Liquatite conduit by Electri-flex is designed for a range of uses in the electrical industry, including motors, lighting, electric signs, elevators, pools/fountains, enclosure connections and more. Available in 25, 50, and 100-ft rolls, type LA flexible steel conduit promises “outstanding” protection against wet, oily conditions and is designed for use in exposed or concealed locations. The flexible inner core is made from a spiral-wound strip of heavy-gauge, corrosion-resistant, hot-dipped galvanized steel. Type LA conduit is suitable for dry working temperatures of -22 F to 176 F, wet applications of -22 F to 140 F and in oily conditions of -22 F to 158 F. Type ATLA flexible steel conduit is designed specifically for extreme hot or cold environments. The PVC jacket claims to remain flexible at low temperature, flame retardant, and resists aging at elevated temperatures. Type SLA flexible shielded liquid-tight conduit is designed for wiring applications requiring protection of sensitive electronic circuits used in communications, radar, and data transmission from electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. Meanwhile, type NM is a general purpose, non-metallic liquid-tight conduit that offers “excellent” protection to wiring from abrasion, sunlight, mild acids, alkaline, and oils. Helically wound integral Type B construction containing a spiral of rigid PVC reinforcement embedded within the PVC wall.
