Calbrite® offers an assortment of tools to facilitate a damage free installation so that you can use the proper tools, designed specifically for stainless steel conduit & fittings.

Calbrite® stainless steel conduit can be installed using conventional tools used for installing galvanized conduit.

Bending

For sizes ½” to 2″, an electric bender is recommended. Calbrite® recommends the Greenlee 555 which utilizes the same shoe set as GRC conduit.

For sizes 2-½” to 4″ hydraulic benders are available from Calbrite®. Greenlee 881CT.

Cutting

For hand cutting and threading use standard cutting tools: either a roller cutter or a saw.

Clamping

Use any conventional vise to clamp the stainless-steel conduit, either a yoke type or a chain type. Calbrite® half-shell clamps with a neoprene gasket are recommended for use with the chain type vise.
