For IMC and RMC, a metal or plastic bushing must be installed on conduit threads at terminations, regardless of conductor size, in accordance with 300.4(F), unless the design of the box, fitting, or enclosure is such as to afford equivalent protection [342.46 and 344.46].

What is a conduit bushing?

Bridgeport’s insulating bushings are used to protect conductors inside rigid or IMC conduits when entering a box or enclosure. The edges of the bushing provide a smooth surface to help prevent damage to wire insulation.

Can I mix PVC and EMT conduit?

You can connect EMT to a PVC box using a regular EMT connector or a raintite one if outside. The only thing is that you will have to use a bonding bushing to connect to the EG.

Why is it important to follow conduit trade size?

One type of raceway is the conduit, which is mostly used in duct bank installation, and also building installations. As with any raceways, conduits also should be sized large enough to carry cables with them overheating and to prevent any insulation damage while cable pulling.
