In an effort to continue providing affordable solutions to the Electrical Industry, Allied Tube & Conduit® developed Intermediate Metal Conduit (IMC) as an alternative to Galvanized Rigid Steel Conduit (GRC, RMC) for those applications that need more protection.
Allied Tube & Conduit® makes standard Intermediate Metal Conduit (IMC) and the patented labor-savings IMC Kwik-Couple® alternative. To complete your raceway system, just use Allied Tube & Conduit®’s rigid elbows, couplings, and nipples (ECN) with your IMC raceway.
Intermediate Metal Conduit (IMC) provides a lighter weight, lower-cost solution for jobs that require the same strength as galvanized rigid steel conduit. Allied Tube and Conduit®’s Intermediate Conduit is hot galvanized using Allied’s patented Flo-Coat® process and is coated on the inside with a specially designed coating which maximizes corrosion resistance and makes wire-pulling easier.
The National Electric Code (NEC) recognizes Allied Tube & Conduit®‘s Intermediate Metal Conduit (IMC) for the same uses as rigid conduit.
Allied Tube & Conduit®’s Intermediate Metal Conduit (IMC) with Rigid Elbows, Couplings and Nipples (ECN) create an Electrical Raceway System recognized as an equipment grounding conductor which provides shielding from electromagnetic interference (EMI). IMC conduit is a raceway solution which allows for future wiring changes and provides excellent mechanical protection to conductors and cables.
