Greenlee Conduit Benders
GREENLEE® manufactures a broad range of industrial products for electricians and electrical contractors. When installing wire, tradesmen often work with electrical conduit pipes to house wiring and keep it neatly organized. This often calls for bending pipe to turn corners and bypass obstacles. To do this, electricians turn to Greenlee conduit benders. For more general needs, Greenlee offers a broad range of other electrical tools, such as voltage detectors and cable cutters.
You can bend conduit using a hand-powered tool or an electrical unit. The hand benders bend electrical magnetic tubing (EMT) with the use of a foot pedal and your body leverage. These tools have a patented head that features a Site-Rite® sighting system with readable markings for accurately measuring the angle of bends. Heavy-duty Greenlee electrical conduit benders can also bend intermediate magnetic tubing (IMC) as well as rigid magnetic tubing (RMT). Some electric models are programmable, making it easy to bend multiple pipes at the same angle.
Electric benders use different-sized shoes to bend conduit, and some models can bend multiple sizes without needing a shoe change for versatility. If you are using polyvinyl chloride (PVC) for your electrical conduit, you can turn to a Greenlee PVC heater. These units will heat sections of PVC pipe with a touch of a button to make it pliable enough to bend. For portability, smaller units have a handle, while larger Greenlee conduit benders have wheels.
Other electrical tools, such as cable cutters and cable pullers, are a must when working with wire. The cable-pulling units allow electricians to stay organized with cable when completing large-scale projects. With the use of Greenlee multimeters and splitters, electricians can to test for voltage to ensure that the wiring infrastructure is operable. Use these tools and Greenlee conduit benders to take on your next wire installation project.
