Liquid tight, flexible, electrical conduit connects and protects electrical wiring. The liquid tight jacket and fittings prevent intrusion of moisture, contamination, corrosion, stress and strain. The conduit has proven to be a reliable and durable shield for people from burns, shock and other injury from uncontrolled electricity. Conduit is tested for safety, in compliance with Underwriters’ Laboratories, National Fire Prevention Association and National Electrical Code standards. We work to make sure ANAMET conduit is safe, flexible and durable.
ANAMET Electrical, Inc. is a recognized leader in production of safe, flexible, liquid-tight electrical wiring conduit. We sustain regulatory recognition for our products, resulting in new solutions that ensure safe use of electricity. Pioneering products, such as ANACONDA SEALTITE® conduit, are used worldwide in commerce and industry. During World War II, liquid tight cable was required for safe operation of electrical equipment in harsh conditions. Electrical distribution was enabled and secured using ANAMET products. April 18, 1949, SEALTITE was listed by Underwriters’ Laboratories, the first liquid tight conduit available to protect civilian electrical systems. Since then, conduit was developed to provide durable connection in extreme temperatures, radiated environments and corrosive conditions, including direct burial in the ground.
Additional services are offered at our factory in Mattoon, Illinois, enabling special applications for flexible conduit. Please contact us about your specific needs.
Correct cutting of flexible conduit ensures secure, liquid tight, connection. A square cut ensures continuity of the ground path for UL listed electrical conduit. This requires careful measuring, cutting with a bandsaw and finishing of the cut end. ANAMET Electrical can cut conduit to custom lengths within tight tolerances.
After cutting flexible conduit, it is critical to debur or finish the conduit, removing sharp edges and burrs.
Rough or sharp edges are smoothed, making conduit safer to handle and easier to install in a fitting.
Burnishing creates a bright, shiny finish on stripwound stainless steel conduit. The conduit is tumbled with small rollers to smooth and polish inside and outside the conduit.
Brand images, lettering and part numbers can be applied to the liquid tight jacket of conduit. Custom colors and marking can identify conduit for special applications or marketing purposes.
When iron compounds remain on the surface of stainless steel, it increases the chance of corrosion. Passivation is the process that removes the iron deposits. The process uses chemical dissolution with nitric or citric acid to remove the iron to prevent corrosion while maintaining the integrity of the stainless steel.
Braiding is applying a woven sheath over the conduit. Various metal wires or other materials are avaiable for weaving a flexible cover over conduit. The resulting cover reinforces the conduit. This improves shielding, resists twisting or torque, prevents abrasion, adds tensile strength and resists elongation from internal pressure.
Color jackets on conduit can be aesthetically appealing and provide quick visual identification of products, brands or applications. NEMA guidelines designate some colors for specific types or purposes for wiring, such as designating high-voltage, architectural, healthcare, data communications, security and optical fiber conduit. Color coding streamlines cable tracing, saving time and money. ANAMET stocks conduit with black and gray jackets. Custom color jackets can be applied in a variety of durable, material formulations.
Whether your application requires PVC, TPE, TPU, FEP, or silicone liquid-tight covers, ANAMET makes conduit with these jacket formulations. Liquid tight conduit protects against dust and liquids outdoors or in corrosive conditions. Flexible, liquid tight conduit is the standard choice for connection of outdoor air conditioning units, water pumps and electrical equipment exposed to water, weather, vibration, contamination and corrosive chemicals.
ANAMET Electrical adds value beyond what is available in imported or off-the-shelf, commodity conduit. Research and development efforts at our factory enable continuous improvement in materials, finishes, electrical conduit, fittings and stripwound hose. Participation in industry bodies and sustained compliance with regulatory oversight keeps us current with commercial and industrial needs. We ensure high-quality products endure, competitively, in applications worldwide.
