East Conduit’s Hot Dip Galvanized Electrical Rigid Conduit (UL6) has excellent protection, strength, safety and ductility for your wiring works.
East Conduit Rigid is manufactured with high-strength steel, and produced by the electric resistance welding process.
East Conduit Rigid are zinc coated both inside and outside using hot dip galvanizing process , so that metal-to-metal contact and galvanic protection against corrosion are provided.
The surface of East Conduit Rigid with a clear post-galvanizing coating to provide further protection against corrosion. The interior surface provides a smooth continuous raceway for easy wire pulling. Our conduits ductility characteristics provide for easy bending, cutting, and threading in the field.
East Conduit Rigid is produced in normal trade sizes from ½“ to 6” in standard lengths of 10 feet (3.05 m), including the coupling and color coded Plastic thread protector caps for quick identification of the conduit size. The rigid conduit is threaded on both ends, with a coupling applied to one end and a by size color coded thread protector to the other as per table.
Features and Benefits
Consistent Quality – We manufacture for long life; it is durable, strong, and suitable for harshest environmental conditions. The steel is welded to ensure quality standards are met exceeded. The inside surface of the pipe is obstruction-free and extra smooth, making wire pulling and pushing easy and reduced friction between wall and wire. The product is easy to cut, form and join.
Excellent ID smoothness – We manufacture the pipes with removing ID flash during pipe making and smooth out ID from zinc dross after galvanizing to provide excellent smoothness and more wire capacity together with no hassle with stripping wire.
Lower Life-cycle costs – East conduit resists cracking, flaking, peeling, impact, and damage from severe bending. Its physical and mechanical properties ensure that the pipe has an extended life cycle, great for usage or storage without trouble in quality.
Protection from Environmental Damage and Mechanical Use – the thorough inside and outside zinc coating of East Conduit provides enhanced, second to none corrosion protection.
