When in use, the cable heats up, providing continuous protection along its full length against industrial pipe freeze-up, steady maintenance of process temperatures, and other applications where a constant temperature is needed.
It can be used in non-hazardous and hazardous locations alike, in locations where corrosives are used, and at environmental temperatures as high as 250°C (482°F).
The XTV family is capable of providing power output of 20W/ft at a temperature of 10°C (50°F) although this will vary in accordance with the temperature of the cable.
Use with a compatible Raychem End Seal Kit, with or without illumination, for fast installation and to keep the heating cable in place with firm hold and integrated strain relief.
Finally, install a Raychem mechanical or electronic thermostat, with ambient and surface sensing models available, to ensure accurate control of the heating cable at all times and a continuous temperature along the pipe.
