Heating cable installation method

Self-limiting temperature heating cable FAQ?

Electric heating cable is a high-efficiency heating method that is different from traditional steam heating. Some problems may sometimes be encountered before and after use. Let us briefly understand the common problems of heating cables for your reference.

1,What is self-regulating cable?

Self-regulating cable, also known as heat tape or heat trace, is a semi-flexible heating cable that automatically regulates its heat output based upon surface temperature and ambient conditions. It is often used for freeze protection applications to wrap or trace pipes, tanks, vessels, roofing, and much more.,

2,The heating value of the electric heating system tends to be zero or low?

Zero or low power supply voltage: overhaul the power supply system; some accessories are not connected or the heating cable is cut off: repair all accessories and the heating cable; some accessories have improper connections; the pipeline is in a high temperature state, and the heating cable has been damaged
What is a Class I/Division 1 environment?
Class I/Division 1 is an environment in which ignitable concentrations of flammable gases or vapors may exist under normal operating conditions, uring repair and maintenance, or where faulty equipment might release these flammable gasses or vapors.
Where do I find Class I /Division 1 environments?
Common industries include Oil, Hydrocarbon & Gas Exploration and Refining, Chemical Manufacturing/Processing, Paint Production, Mining, Coal Processing, and many more.,
3,self-regulating heating cable Circuit breaker tripped?
The circuit breaker selection is too small: recalculate the amount of electricity required to check the circuit, and then select the matching circuit breaker (the power supply cable should also be selected); circuit breaker failure: check and repair the circuit breaker; the junction box or other accessories have a short circuit fault :The method to determine the fault and judge the short circuit is as follows:
(1) All wiring accessories are installed completely and the waterproof seal is damaged;
(2) Whether the pipe fittings have been repaired and damaged the heating cable;
(3) Whether the insulation layer is damaged or crushed;
How much heat does selfregulating cable generate?
Depending upon model and wattage, heat output can vary greatly. Maximum operating temperatures range from 150°F to 392°F (65°C to 120°C), but because of the selfregulating design, actual temperatures are normally much lower.
4,What is the maximum allowable circuit length?,
Depending on wattage, voltage, and circuit capacity, circuit lengths can range from 32 ft to 660 ft.
5,How do I select the best heating cable for my application?
We provides, at no charge, a full-service heat-loss calculation and engineering support to make a recommendation based on the specifications of your application.
6,Do I need to insulate over the cable?,
Yes, insulation is always recommended to maximize thermal performance and efficiency.
7,What insulation should I use with Self-Regulating heating cable?
Depending on the application, BriskHeat offers two types of insulation; Insul-Lock pre-formed foam insulation for pipe, and Silver-Series cloth insulators for pipe, valves, flanges, etc., as well as custom designed insulators. Contact us to determine which best fits your requirements.
