Conduit Fill

Only the tan cells need be modified

INSTRUCTIONS
Enter the desired maximum percentge conduit fill permitted for this design.
Enter the number of conductors of each size in the conduit.
Read the calculated fill in square inches in the green cell.
Compare the calculated fill to the max fill in the table for the conduit size and type desired, and if the
table entry is larger than the calculated value, the design is acceptable.
