RangePentair Raychem XPI-S Trace Heating Cable

XPI-S 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-S is a re-enforced version of XPI, particularly suitable for areas with high demands on mechanical abuse of the heating cable. XPI-S 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 (e.g. 250 m).

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 most excellent mechanical strength, in particular at elevated temperatures.

XPI-S heating cables can be used for temperatures up to 260°C (continuous) and 300°C (intermittent short-term exposure). XPI-S is easy to install and has printed meter-marks. Pentair offers XPI-S 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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...

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.

Read more

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.

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.

Read more

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

How do I terminate the heating cable?

Full termination instructions are provided with all our heating tapes

Read more

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 ...

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...

Read more

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 Trace?

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...
