Similarly one may ask, what is RGS conduit?
Intermediate metal conduit (IMC) is a steel tubing heavier than EMT but lighter than RMC. It may be threaded. Electrical metallic tubing (EMT), sometimes called thin-wall, is commonly used instead of galvanized rigid conduit (GRC), as it is less costly and lighter than GRC.
Secondly, what is the difference between IMC and rigid conduit? Intermediate metal conduit (IMC) has a thinner wall than RMC and weighs about one-third less. IMC has a thinner wall than RMC and weighs about one-third less than RMC. The outside has a zinc-based coating, and the inside has an approved organic corrosion-resistant coating. IMC is interchangeable with galvanized RMC.
Beside above, what are the different types of conduit?
There are seven different types of conduit used commonly in residential and light commercial wiring.
- Rigid Metal Conduit—RMC and IMC.
- Electrical Metallic Tubing—EMT.
- Electrical Non-Metallic Tubing—ENT.
- Flexible Metal Conduit—FMC and LFMC.
- Rigid PVC Conduit.
Where can I use EMT conduit?
Flexible metal conduit is great for areas that require tight bends and close quarters would make it difficult to bend regular conduit. Water heaters, can lights, and attic vents are great examples of typical flexible conduit installation. EMT conduit is lightweight, easy to bend, and is used within the walls.
