Liquid-Tight Flexible Conduits
You want the best protection on the market for your wiring. Engineered to withstand even the most challenging industrial environments, liquid-tight flexible conduits from AerosUSA are resilient, adaptable and available in metallic and non-metallic options to fit a variety of industries and applications.
Today’s working environments are fast-paced and focused on efficiency. As a result, there are many benefits to using liquid-tight flexible conduits for cable and wire protection. Flexible tubing is ideal for challenging setups in tight areas, allowing for tight bends and quick adjustment to maximize your economy of space. AerosUSA supplies galvanized steel liquid-tight flexible conduits in addition to non-metallic PVC and Polyamide options, so you never have to compromise on protection.
AerosUSA has customers in some of the world’s most demanding industries. Whether you’re working on HVAC setups, offshore rigs or rail and transit systems, you want products you can rely on. From liquid-tight conduit to cable chains, AerosUSA offers only the highest level of product quality.
Types of Liquid-Tight Flexible Conduits
Liquid-tight conduits are available in various options to meet the needs of different applications. Liquid-tight conduits are often categorized into two groups — metallic and non-metallic.
Metallic liquid-tight flexible conduits tend to be more expensive than their non-metallic counterparts. Metal conduits offer excellent protection against pests, extreme temperatures and even fire. A popular metallic conduit is the liquid-tight flexible metal conduit (LFMC). LFMCs provide flexibility while still protecting against moisture. This makes LFMCs suitable for many applications, including hazardous areas.
Meanwhile, non-metallic liquid-tight flexible conduits are lighter weight, more affordable, more flexible and more corrosion resistant. The most popular non-metallic conduit is the liquid-tight flexible non-metallic conduit (LFNC). An LFNC is made of PVC with a smooth outer and inner surface. This conduit is commonly used in ventilation, heating, air conditioning and power plants.
Many different conduit options are available within these two categories. Explore the various options offered at AerosUSA, or reach out to our team for expert guidance.
What Is the Difference Between FMC and FMT Conduits?
Along with LFMCs and LNFCs, there are also flexible metal conduits (FMC) and flexible metal tubing (FMT). FMCs and LFMCs are very similar — however, FMCs are not designed to be waterproof. LFMCs have an additional plastic coating that makes them water-tight. So, when choosing between LFMCs or FMCs, LFMCs are the better choice for moisture protection.
Unlike FMCs, FMTs are waterproof. However, FMTs are technically not considered conduits but rather a raceway. FMTs are still excellent for enclosing wiring. FMTs can be used for various applications and allow easier access to the wiring once installed if needed.
