## Concentric Bends

Concentric bends are a set of conduit bends that have a common center point, but have different centerline radii. Figure 1 shows three concentric bends produced from 2″ rigid conduit. Conduit 1 has a centerline radius of 20″. Conduit 2 has a centerline radius of 24 3/8″. Conduit 3 has a centerline radius of 28 […]

## Center Of Bend

If you‘re an electrician, you probably already know how to find the center of a bend. But for those of us who don‘t work with conduit on a regular basis, it‘s not always so obvious. Here‘s a quick rundown of how to do it: How To Find Center of Bend Electricians often need to locate […]

## Offset Bends

Offset bends are used to move a run of conduit from one plane to another.  An offset is normally used to bend the conduit around an obstruction, or to relocate the conduit close to a structural member to make it easier to fasten the conduit.  Figure 2 shows an example of an offset bend. Layout. […]

## Segment Bends

Sample method to bend 3-1/2″ rigid conduit around a storage tank with a diameter of 160 feet. Segment bending is a method of bending conduit by making several small bends to produce one larger bend.  The method on this page illustrates a technique for bending a 3-1/2″ rigid conduit around a tank with a 160′ […]

## Conduit Size

When it comes to electrical conduit, size does matter. The wrong size conduit can create problems with your electrical system, so it’s important to choose the right size for your needs. Here’s a look at what you need to know about conduit size so you can make the best choice for your home or business. […]

## Conduit Bending

Conduit bending is the process of shaping electrical conduit into various forms in order to complete an installation. This can be done by hand, using a variety of hand tools specifically designed for the task, or by machine, using a conduit bender. The electrical trade generally uses rigid conduit, which is available in a variety […]
