9-10, but the conduit may not exceed a certain length, or a
certain voltage in order for you to "legally" do it. Many
applications allow for conduit fill ratio's that exceed the
standards of the NEC ( National Electrical Code) and most of them
are short (less than 24") "chases" between control devices mounted
in listed Junction boxes for that purpose. It is not advisable to
fill a conduit more than the NEC allows for purposes of heat
dissipation.

### What is electrical conduit?

There are many types of conduit used for the containment of
electrical wires. PVC is a non-metallic option. If you need
something that provides mechanical protection, EMT is a steel
conduit with a thin wall. Need even more mechanical protection, you
can use rigid conduit. It comes in steel or aluminum, and must be
threaded together.

### How do you convert hundredths of an inch to an inch?

Multiply the hundredths of an inch by 100.

Think carefully:
How many hundredths of an inch do you have there, John?
I have 543, Bob. 543 hundredths of an inch.
So John, how many inches is that?
Bob, I figure I have 5.43 inches here.
John is correct. You take the number of
hundredths, and divide it by 100. Every 100 of them
in a row will equal an inch.

### Can you use existing PVC conduit run from basement to 8th floor for 120v circuits for chillers?

The simple answer to your question is yes.
But there are limits to how many wires can be in any conduit,
and the current carrying capacity of the conductors can be affected
by distance, ambient temperature, and how many conductors are
contained in the same conduit.
Other things to consider are, Can you physically fit the wires
in there? Would it be easier to run a new conduit? Do you have the
manpower necessary to get the work done?

###### Asked in Home Electricity

### How many wires can be sent in one inch conduit?

The electrical code book provides a chart for conduit fill. The
same size conductors have different types and thickness's of
insulation which has to be taken into account on wire fill
calculations. 1" or 27 mm conduit can carry the following amount of
RW90 insulated conductors.25 - #14, 19 - #12, 14 - #10, 7 - #8, 10
- #6, 4 - #4, 3 - #3, 3 - #2,and 1 - #1.
