nVent RAYCHEM ETL self-regulating trace heating cable

Overview

Trace heating cable for pipe frost protection

RAYCHEM self-regulating heating cable for frost protection of pipes.

The ETL trace heating cable provides energy-efficient and easy-to-use protection against frozen pipes.

In or on water pipes installation:

  • R-ETL-A (10 W/m @ 5°C)
  • R-ETL-B (16 W/m @ 5°C)

On water pipes installation only:

  • R-ETL-A-CR (10 W/m @ 5°C)
  • R-ETL-B-CR (16 W/m @ 5°C)
Key benefits:
  • Easy to design and install with cut-to-length capability, cable metre marking and simple heat shrink components
  • Small geometry for ease of installation
  • Safe: no overheating possible: even when crossed or closely spaced
  • Energy-efficiency through self-regulating technology
  • Maintenance-free: no moving parts

Further energy savings can be made with various control and monitoring systems.
