Self-Regulating Heating Cable

Argus Heating stock and distribute a range of self-regulating heating cable that automatically varies its power output as pipe or ambient temperature changes.

This is a versatile cable that can be used in many applications to eliminate the interruption caused by frost and freezing, maintain optimum product and process temperatures, improve process reliability, reduce product waste, and keep motors, pipes, and pumps functioning effectively.

Features

  • ‍Energy efficient. Power output reduces as temperature increases.
  • Easy to install and can be cut to any length up to maximum circuit length.
  • No overheating or burnout, even when overlapped.

Construction

Flame retardant thermoplastic outer layer protects from abrasion, corrosion and impact. 1.3mm2 parallel buswires embedded in a self-regulating semi-conductor inner core with thermoplastic and tined copper layers.

  • Max. temperature continuous: +65°C
  • Max. temperature intermittent: +85°C
  • Min. installation temperature: -40°C
  • Dimensions: 12.6mm x 6mm
  • Minimum bend radius: 36mm (20°C)
  • Voltage: 208-277V
  • Manufactured to IEC60800:2009 (Heating cables with a rated voltage of 300/500 V for comfort heating and prevention of ice formation)

Applications

  • Frost or freeze protection of pipes, valves, doors, drains, roofs, gutters
  • Temperature maintenance of pipes, tanks, grease traps
  • Pipe warming to reduce the viscosity of the product
  • Anti-condensation control on motors, pumps, pipes etc.
Self-regulating heating cable, also known as self-limiting heat cable or heating tape, automatically varies its power output as the pipe or ambient temperature changes.
