Raychem C-150-E Low Profile Power Connection (Cold Applied)
The C-150-E is a cold applied low profile power connection. The kit enables in line connection of Raychem industrial heating cables, BTV, QTVR, XTV and KTV, to a flexible power cable. It can be used in applications with temperature ratings from -50°C to 215°C. It is approved for use in hazardous areas.
A Raychem power cable may be used or any suitable standard industrial power cable type 3 x 1.5 mm2 or 3 x 2.5 mm2 with stranded copper conductors and an outer insulation jacket. The power cable is connected by means of screw terminals to the conductors and the braid of the heating cable.
C-150-E is used as connector:
- Where connection to a junction box is difficult e.g. because of space limitation
- On instrument lines or loading arms
- Where installation of "under insulation" components is preferred
- As a cost effective solution for short heat-tracing lines as an alternative for JBS-100.
Frequently asked questions
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, utilising our in-house design facilities, we can design your complete trace heating requirement.
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 ...
Most applications can simply be straight traced, reducing costs of materials and installation time without compromising on operational requirements.
Yes, thermal insulation is required on all heat trace applications. Without insulation, surface heat losses can increase approximately 4-5 times.
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...
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...
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...
