Product Description

Range 12W L/m Pre-made Trace Heating Kit
Variant 2m
Barcode 5060517170806
Weight 2.00 Kg

12W/m pre-terminated self regulating frost protection trace heating kit, complete with built-in thermostat and 2m cold lead.

This trace heating kit is the ideal solution to prevent pipes from freezing. By using a self regulating trace heating cable the system prevents overheating and ensures efficient operation by limiting its output per metre through the use of a variable resistive compound.

When the ambient temperature drops below 5°C the trace heating cable activates and remains in operation until the ambient temperature exceeds 10°C. The built-in thermostat ensures that the frost protection system only operates when required to stop pipes freezing throughout winter and remains dormant during the summer.

Each frost protection kit consists of:

  • Pre-terminated trace heating cable
  • Built-in thermostat
  • 2m of power cable (cold lead)
  • Warning labels
  • Cable ties
  • 13 amp 3 pin plug

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use heat trace on plastic pipes?

Yes, when using trace heating on plastic pipes ensure that ATE- 180 aluminium tape is used to help disperse the heat around the pipe.

Can you design a full surface heating system for me?

Yes, utilising our in-house design facilities, we can design your complete trace heating requirement.

Do I have to allow extra heat for pumps and valves?

If the surface area of the pump is substantially greater than that of the adjoining pipework then extra heating cable may need to be considered (depending on wattage of cable installed). Pumps and ...

Do I have to spiral the trace heating onto the pipe?

Most applications can simply be straight traced, reducing costs of materials and installation time without compromising on operational requirements.

Read more

Do I need to use thermal insulation?

Yes, thermal insulation is required on all heat trace applications. Without insulation, surface heat losses can increase approximately 4-5 times.

Does my trace heating system require maintenance?

Generally, no maintenance of our trace heating systems is required but it is recommended that the system is checked for operational and electrical integrity periodically or prior to the winter or p...

How do I test my trace heating system is working properly?

System checks depend on the system installed, constant wattage systems can be fully checked for insulation resistance and continuity. Self regulating systems can only be checked for insulation resi...

What is heat tape for water pipes?

When water pipes are exposed to cold temperatures either outdoors, underground or in small spaces, you can protect them from freezing by wrapping them with heat tape. Heating tape is actually a cor...

What is self regulating heating tape?

Self limiting / self regulating heating tape adjusts heat output to equal the heat loss from the pipe work. As pipe temperature falls the electrical conductivity of the semi-conductive core increas...
