What Are Small Diameter Conduits?

Small diameter conduits are often used in hard-to-reach or tight spaces that require flexible cabling. These narrow tubes protect wires from numerous risks, like impacts, vapors and moisture. Their versatility means they can be implemented in commercial, industrial and residential structures, and they consist of metal, plastic or fiberglass materials.

Applications of This Conduit Type

Professionals often use small diameter conduits for applications such as:

  • Medical instrumentation: Endoscopes include small diameter conduits that offer stretch resistance and low flammability and can stand up to harsh chemicals. Other medical instruments like surgical imaging equipment and ultrasounds require small diameter cable protection to ensure durability and endurance against various factors, such as ranging temperatures.
  • Electronic devices: Electronic applications like CCTV circuits, industrial control wiring and sensing devices use small diameter conduits to safeguard sensitive cables.
  • Fiber optics: Fiber optic conduits can withstand rugged environments to help keep your network functioning under many conditions. This type can also be buried underground, meaning less maintenance.

Benefits of Small Diameter Conduits

You can trust that you’ll enjoy numerous benefits when you choose this conduit type for your electrical wiring jobs, no matter what industry you’re working in. Explore these advantages:

  • Easy cable replacement: Small diameter conduits make it easier for professionals to replace or upgrade cables without affecting the entire infrastructure.
  • Flexibility: Small diameter flexible conduits offer adaptability for spaces where it’s difficult to install rigid conduits or conduits with larger diameters.
  • Safety: High-quality conduits protect cables from deterioration, which can pose safety risks to workers and building occupants. Damaged or worn cables can facilitate electrical outages or fires.
  • Compliance: In general, conduits can help a structure stay compliant with National Electrical Code (NEC) guidelines — including if the current wiring becomes damaged or nears the end of its life span.
