The manufacture of consistent-quality self-regulating heating cable has been mastered by only a couple of companies worldwide, and even then, only partially. Our PipeGuard series of self-regulating heating cables are the best in the world. They are the most accurate in stated wattage outputs, the most conservative with respect to longevity claims, the easiest to work with, and the toughest and most effective in service, for any electric heat-tracing application.
HotTape is a small-dimensioned polyolefin jacketed cable for expedient repair in light industrial applications designed to be installed with heat shrink kits. While HotTape is Class I Div 1 and 2 certified, it is also available in pre-terminated lengths for quick installation using 120V outlets. Available in 120V and 208-277V versions, 5W and 8W per foot.
MultiTrace is a polyolefin jacketed cable designed for freeze protection and process temperature maintenance where chemical exposure is not a concern. Certified for Ordinary Areas only, 3-, 5-, 8- and 10 W per foot, 120V and 208-277V. Certified for use with PowerPod™ or heat shrink kits.
Certified for industrial roof and drain deicing applications.
PipeGuard self-regulating cables are certified for use in ordinary or hazardous areas for process temperature maintenance and freeze protection applications. The cables are available in a polyolefin or Fluoropolymer jacket. Available in 3-, 5-, 8- and 10 W per foot, 120V and 208-277V. Certified for use with PowerPod™, heat shrink, or copper free aluminum metallic enclosures.
Certified for industrial roof and drain deicing applications. Certified by CSA and by Factory Mutual.
PipeGuard Hot self-regulating cables are certified for use in ordinary or hazardous areas for process temperature maintenance and freeze protection applications where high temperature exposure is a concern – for instance on steam condensate lines, where freeze protection is the application yet the heating cable must withstand continuous exposure to steam temperatures. Available in 5-, 10-, 15- and 20 W per foot, 120V and 208-277V.
Certified for use with copper free aluminum metallic enclosures.
Self regulating cables embody the best of polymer science, because these products show just how creative polymer scientists have been to develop conductive polymers that can not only generate heat, but vary their power output as the temperature changes. However, plastics have an upper temperature limit that is defined by the laws of chemistry. Above these temperature limits, metallic heating cables must be used.
PipeGuard CMH is a parallel-circuit cable of inorganic construction that can be cut-to-length, spliced, repaired, or teed in the field, with a minimum circuit length of 1 foot. It is available in 120V or 208-277V, from 5 watts per foot to 30 watts per foot, has a bend radius of less than 1”, and can maintain pipes at 300 C and withstand 350 C. It provides significant savings due to its ease of design and installation.
Mineral Insulated Cables
We provide Mineral Insulated Cable in a number of sheath materials and electrical configurations. MI Cable has proven its worth over decades of severe industrial use and is the product of choice for many applications involving high maintain temperatures, long lines, or high temperature exposures.
