The E-100-A and E-100-L-A serve as above-insulation end seal kits for Raychem brand BTV, QTVR, XTV, KTV, or VPL heating cables. They are approved by FM and CSA for use in hazardous locations.
Both the E-100-A and the E-100-L-A are mounted on the pipe and project through the thermal insulation and cladding for ease of maintenance. The E-100-L-A end seal with signal light uses an array of bright LEDs for exceptional visibility and long product life.
These rugged end seals are made from high-performance engineering polymer and resist impact, high temperature, and chemical and UV exposure. The stand allows for up to four inches (100 mm) of thermal insulation. The encapsulated light and boot reliably prevent moisture and dust ingress. The industrial-grade electronics used in the E-100-L-A are encapsulated.
Both the E-100-A and E-100-L-A are re-enterable, allowing easy access for testing. Voltage and continuity checks can be done by simply unscrewing the E-100-A cap and removing the reusable sealing boot. The E-100-L-A makes maintenance even easier by allowing for visual inspection of heating circuit continuity. The E-100-L-A can be retrofitted into previously installed E-100-A end seals. The light module is replaceable.
The kits contain all the necessary materials for a complete installation except for one pipe strap, which must be ordered separately.
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...
