Highly specialised requirements in
some industries and commercial applications require the use of small bore conduits, to protect
electric cable and optical fibre. The Ramflex Micro Conduit is now available from EC&M Electrical Pty Ltd, to meet
the unique needs of these applications.
Produced from continuous stainless
steel strip, these flexible, hardwearing conduits come in a range of sizes from
3.5 mm to 12.7 mm ID.
Stainless steel strip is helically
wound, to produce these ruggedly-built conduits for industrial applications
like robotics, clean rooms, fibre optics, as well as IT and control systems.
The small size means these
conduits are perfectly suited for use in the manufacture of instrumentation
tubing in industries ranging from process and control instrumentation,
measuring and controlling devices, analytical instruments, medical equipment
and so on.
In process industries, these are
used in electrical cable encapsulation for sensors, thermocouples, photo cells,
proximity switches and so on.
Being made from stainless steel
strip means that this micro conduit range possesses inherent low fire hazard
Ramflex micro conduits come in a
squarelok range, as standard. In this style, the stainless steel strip is held
in position by locking one leg of one profile over the leg of the adjacent
profile. The conduit also comes in an interlok range, where the edges of the
stainless steel strips are completely interlocked with each other.
Ideal for applications requiring
increased crush protection and where higher axial strength is required, the
interlok profile is only available on special order.
To illustrate this capability, a 5
mm ID squarelok conduit has a breaking load of 68 kg minimum, while the same
size in interlok style is rated at up to 86 kg minimum breaking load.
Ramflex micro conduits address the
expanding need to protect often vulnerable cabling in CCTV installations,
roller shutter door control systems, voice and data cabling and other similar
applications. These conduits also
address concerns with regards to vandalism and sabotage.
Ramflex micro conduits are also
available in an overbraided range, ideal for use in abrasive environments.
