Online tool calculates cable-pulling lubricant needs

Jan. 13, 2011
Calculator from American Polywater makes quick estimates using English or metric measurements.

An online calculator available from American Polywater allows cable installers to determine how much cable-pulling lubricant they will need for a job based on the sizes and lengths of conduits through which the cable will be pulled. The company offers two such calculator tools, one for jobs with multiple cable pulls and one for a single cable pull. The image at the bottom of this page shows the calculator for jobs with multiple pulls.

Users of the calculator can choose to use metric or English conduit sizes and lengths. Depending on the choice, the amount of lubricant needed will be displayed in either liters or gallons.
