Snow and frost melting cable 300 W/m in concrete at 0 Deg C.
The self regulating EM2-XR cable automatically adjusts its power output in accordance with ambient conditions; more power is produced in harsh freezing conditions and less power in marginal freezing conditions.
It can be cut to length onsite providing complete flexibility in installation. It can also be provided as a configured heating unit to meet your specific design requirements, including pre-installed terminations and power cable.
|Max Exposure Temp||100 Deg C|
|Min Installation Temp||-20 Deg C|
|Min Installation Temp||85m (50 A)|
|Nominal power output||300 W/m in concrete at 0 DegC|
We make every effort in answering your questions. Below is a list of those questions we are frequently asked. Click on a question to expand its answer.
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...
Yes, utilising our in-house design facilities, we can design your complete trace heating requirement.
Yes, when using trace heating on plastic pipes ensure that ATE- 180 aluminium tape is used to help disperse the heat around the pipe.
Yes, thermal insulation is required on all heat trace applications. Without insulation, surface heat losses can increase approximately 4-5 times.
Most applications can simply be straight traced, reducing costs of materials and installation time without compromising on operational requirements.
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 ...
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...
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...
This is used for a pipe freeze protection application. Electric heat tracing, heat tape or surface heating, is a system used to maintain or raise the temperature of pipes and vessels. Trace heat...
