Self-Regulating cable being installed
WinterSafe Plus™ Self Regulating Heating Cable
WinterSafe Plus is a high temperature, industrial grade self−regulating heating cable that can be used for applications ranging from simple freeze protection up to process temperature maintenance of 250°F (121°C). With a maximum exposure temperature rating of 366°F (186°C), WinterSafe Plus is ideal for installation on piping systems that may need to be routinely or periodically steam cleaned.
The self−regulating feature of WinterSafe Plus ensures complete safety and reliability. WinterSafe Plus heating cable cannot overheat or burnout, even when overlapped upon itself. WinterSafe Plus can be cut to length at the job site automatically matching the exact piping length being traced. The need to pre−plan and layout the cable routing is unnecessary, you use only what is needed. There is no waste and any leftover cable can be stored and kept ready for use on future applications.
The installation of WinterSafe Plus heating cable is quick, simple and requires no special tools, skills or knowledge. A complete range of standard power connection kits, splice kits, tee splice kits and controls are readily available.
WinterSafe Plus heating cable is third party approved by both FM and CSA for use in unclassified (non-hazardous) areas, most classified (hazardous) areas and corrosive environments, and can be used safely on piping that is routinely steam cleaned.
It is available in 120 and 240 volt versions.
AutoWatt Xtra™ Self Regulating Heating Cable
AutoWatt Xtra encompasses the very latest self−regulating technology combined with the use of high temperature PFA insulating materials to offer one heating cable that is superior to all others. Consider the following competitive facts:
- AutoWatt Xtra can provide process temperature maintenance up to 375°F(190°C) nearest competitive capability is 300°F (149°C)
- AutoWatt Xtra can be used on applications with exposure temperatures up to 450°F (232°C) nearest competitive capability is 420°F(215°C)
- AutoWatt Xtra can provide up to 30 watts per foot of power; the nearest competitive capability is 20 watts per foot.
The self-regulating feature of AutoWatt Xtra ensures complete safety and reliability. AutoWatt Xtra cannot overheat or burnout, even when overlapped upon itself. AutoWatt Xtra heating cables are third party approved by Factory Mutual and CSA for use in unclassified (non-hazardous) areas, most classified (hazardous) areas and in corrosive areas or environments.
AutoWatt Xtra heating cables provide an ideal solution for industrial freeze protection and process maintenance applications that require high temperature qualifications. With power ratings up to 30 watts/ft, AutoWatt Xtra heating cables are also perfect for heating large diameter pipes with high levels of heat loss. A complete range of standard power connection kits, splice kits and tee splice kits are available to minimize power supply points and simplify cable routing on even the most complex piping systems.
VersaTrace™ Series Circuit Heating Cable
VersaTrace VT heating cables are high temperature, industrial grade heating cables that can be used on applications ranging from simple freeze protection to process temperature maintenance of 400°F (204°C). The VersaTrace products are fixed resistance, series circuit style heating cables, that can be cut to length at the job site and designed to provide power outputs up to 20 watts/ft on operating voltages up to 600 VAC. With exceptionally high temperature exposure ratings of 500°F (260°C), all VersaTrace heating cables can be used safely on process piping systems that may need to be routinely or periodically steam cleaned.
VersaTrace heating cables are rugged and constructed to handle the highest levels of mechanical and environmental abuse without failure or any loss of performance. Applications that would destroy conventional heating cables are handled with complete safety and reliability. Without exception, VT cables are the toughest industrial grade heating cables available.
VersaTrace heating cables are tough and they are also amazingly flexible. VT cables can be cut to length at the job site to match the exact lengths of pipes to be traced and they are easily wrapped around valves, pumps and fittings. The installation of all VersaTrace heating cables is quick, simple and requires no special tools, knowledge or skills. A complete range of standard power connection kits, splice kits, tee splice kits and controls are available.
Long Pipeline Heating Systems
Many types of pipelines must be heated to ensure that the fluid or product being carried within is maintained at an optimum temperature and viscosity for pumping purposes. Occasionally, pipeline heating systems are needed to raise the temperature of the fluid or product being carried within the pipeline.
Thermal insulation alone cannot completely eliminate heat loss from the pipeline. Continuous levels of heat loss from the pipeline result in cooling of the fluid or product. When the level of cooling becomes sufficient to create viscosity and pumping problems, heat must be applied directly to the pipeline to address the problem. One of the most common applications of a long pipeline heating system is one that prevents the fluid being transported from freezing during winter operation.
HTD Heat Trace, Inc. specializes in the engineering and design of long pipeline heating systems, and can offer technical and commercially viable solutions for either buried or above ground pipeline heating systems that can perform safely and reliably in climates ranging from the Arctic Winter to Sahara Summer.
