BTV Self-Regulating Heating Cable

nVent RAYCHEM BTV self-regulating trace heating cables provide freeze protection and process temperature maintenance, up to 150 °F/65 °C, of pipes/vessels without steam cleaning requirements. They withstand intermittent exposure to 185 °F/85 °C and a

re hazardous area approved. The polyolefin outer jacket (-CR) is suitable for mild inorganic solutions. The fluoropolymer outer jacket (-CT) provides high chemical resistance against aggressive organics and corrosives.


  1. The heating cable shall consist of two 14 AWG nickel-plated copper bus wires, separated by a fluoropolymer spacer and helically wrapped with a self-regulating fluoropolymer fiber that controls power output so that the cable has an unconditional temperature identification number (T-rating) of T2C (446°F or 230°C) or lower without use of thermostats.
  2. A ground-fault protection device set at 30 mA, with a nominal 100-ms response time, shall be used to protect each circuit.
  3. The heating cable shall have a tinned copper braid with a resistance less than the heating cable bus wire resistance as determined in a type test (ASTM, B193, Sec. 5). The braid shall be protected from chemical attack and mechanical abuse by a fluoropolymer outer jacket.
  4. The heating cable shall have continuous exposure (maintain) capability up to 250°F (121°C) and intermittent exposure capability up to 482°F (250°C or 250 psi steam), as manufactured by nVent.
