AFC Cable Systems liquid tight conduit, designed to withstand extreme temperatures
AFC Cable Systems hi-low temperature LFMC have been tested to withstand temperatures from -55°C to 105°C in dry conditions, and 60°C in wet conditions and up to 70°C oil resistance.
The performance of conduit depends on its application and operating temperature. When used in an environment of extreme temperature, conduit not suited for these conditions may have shortened service life due to degradation of the material.
Thorough testing, including low temperature flexibility, cold bend, cold impact, sunlight resistance and other physical property testing, should be done to determine the appropriate operating temperature range for the conduit to ensure product integrity.
The following hi-low temperature LFMC properties ensure the protection of the conductors:
- PVC Jacket: a moisture, oil and sunlight-resistant PVC jacket is applied directly over a zinc-coated galvanised low-carbon steel core which makes the conduit rated for wet conditions, essential if intended for outdoor use and exposed to the elements.
- Grounding: LFMC is permitted to serve as an equipment ground by NEC 250.118(6).
- Industry Compliant: AFC Cable’s LFMC is listed to Underwriters Laboratories Standard for Safety UL 360 and is compliant with all construction and performance requirements as well as permitted for use in accordance with the NEC.
- Size Range: available in trade sizes ranging from 3/8” to 4” and comes in standard gray, however, additional color options are available upon request.
