Cable Systems’ trace heating products allow you to protect pipework and conduits against sub-zero temperatures, which in turn prevents cold damage and stops liquids from freezing inside pipes.

The solution is relatively simple – a heating cable runs the length of the pipe and, as ambient temperatures fall, the cable heats up to compensate.

In self-regulating heating cables, electrical activity in the conductive polymer core increases as the temperature falls, causing the cable to heat up automatically.

The output can also be controlled using a mechanical or electronic thermostat, allowing trace heating to be used on pipes and conduits that are also subject to a maximum acceptable temperature.

Hazardous area Zone 1 and 2 (Gas) and Zone 21 and 22 (Dust) ratings mean thermostats can be installed where they are needed, including within the perimeter of hazardous areas.

Together, this means that you can keep important infrastructure well within its safe operating range, reducing the risk of ruptured pipework and hazardous leaks, and avoiding the unnecessary repair costs that would otherwise follow.

With complete trace heating systems and accessories available from trusted brands like Raychem, you’ll find everything you need at Cable Systems to protect your pipes this winter.
