Allied Tube & Conduit IMC
INTERMEDIATE METAL CONDUIT
Durable Light IMC Steel Conduit
Allied Tube & Conduit IMC is precision manufactured for economical protection and long lasting value for the electrical raceway system. Allied Tube & Conduit IMC is lighter in weight, but as strong as Rigid.
Intermediate Metal Conduit, covered by Article 342 in the National Electrical CodeÂ® (NEC), is recognized as an equipment grounding conductor in Article 250 of the NEC and also provides excellent sheilding from electromagnetic fields.
- Light-weight ductile steel conduit for long life and easy bending
- Hot-dip galvanized layer to increase corrosion resistance, and protect against white rust
- Creates a smooth, continuous raceway for fast wire-pulling
- U.L. listed and manufactured in accordance with ANSI C80.6.
- Available in trade sizes 1/2 â€“ 4
FULL ELECTRICAL SYSTEM PROTECTION
Allied Tube & Conduit IMC is lighter in weight but as strong as RIGID, and is recognized for use in the same applications, including all hazardous locations. Allied Tube & Conduit IMC is manufactured from premium, work hardened steel combining electrical and mechanical performance with ductility. Allied Tube & Conduit IMC is resistant to impact and is easy to cut, bend and join for smooth, continuous raceways and fast wire-pulling. Allied Tube & Conduit IMC is hot galvanized using Allied Tube & Conduit’s patented in-line Flo-CoatÂÂ® process. This process combines zinc, a conversion coating, and a clear organic polymer top-coat to form a triple layer of protection against corrosion and abrasion. The interior of Allied Tube & Conduit IMC is coated with a highly corrosion- resistant lubricating finish for easier wire-pulling. No need to worry about damage to the conduit system even when pulling through multiple 90Â° bends.
THE ALLIED TUBE & CONDUIT ADVANTAGE
Allied Tube & Conduit IMC has a larger internal diameter than RIGID conduit to allow for easier fishing and wire-pulling. Allied Tube & Conduit IMC is also more “rigid” than RIGID to provide superior wiring protection in many applications. The National Electrical Code recognizes Allied Tube & Conduit IMC for the same uses as RIGID, including all hazardous (classified) applications.
Allied Tube & Conduit IMC uses the same threaded couplings and fittings as RIGID conduit, and the 3/4″ NPT threads (ANSI B1.20.1) are also full cut and galvanized after cutting. Color-coded end-cap thread protectors keep the threads clean and sharp, and also help to provide instant trade size recognition. Even sizes are color-coded orange, 1/2 trade sizes are yellow, and 1/4 trade sizes are green.
Allied Tube & Conduit IMC greatly reduces electromagnetic fields, effectively shielding computers and sensitive electronic equipment from the electromagnetic interference caused by power distribution systems. Allied Tube & Conduit EMT is very effective in reducing electromagnetic field levels for encased power distribution circuits, shielding computers and other sensitive electronic equipment from the effects of electromagnetic interference.
