PI Series Heating Cables XPI Hazardous Areas, 4J
XPI is a polymer insulated (PI) series heating cable, suitable for use in hazardous areas. It has been designed for use in freeze protection and temperature maintenance applications of pipes, tanks and other equipment. XPI offers an economical solution for a wide variety of heat-tracing applications, in particular for pipe lengths beyond the maximum circuit lengths of parallel heating cables.
The inner insulation is a sandwich construction of high temperature fluoropolymer and PTFE, the outer insulation is made of PTFE. This unique construction is very easy to terminate, highly flexible and makes XPI a very safe and reliable product. It provides highest chemical withstand and excellent mechanical strength, in particular at elevated temperatures.
XPI heating cables can be used for temperatures up to 260°C (continuous) and 300°C (intermittent short-term exposure). XPI is easy to install and has printed meter-marks. Pentair offers XPI heating cables in a very wide range of resistances, starting from 0.8 Ω/km up to 8000 Ω/km as well as a complete range of components for connection and splicing of the cables.
