FREEZ STOP MICRO

SELF REGULATING

Electrical heating cable for frost protection or temperature maintenance.

 

  • Automatically adjusts heat output in response to increasing or decreasing pipe temperature.
  • Can be cut-to-length with no wastage.
  • Will not overheat or burnout, even when overlapped.
  • Full range of controls and accessories.
  • Approved for use in non-hazardous, hazardous and corrosive environments.
  • Ideal for fitting to instrument lines and small diameter pipes.

 

 

DESCRIPTION

FREEZSTOP MICRO is an industrial grade self-regulating heating cable that can be used for freeze protection or temperature maintenance of pipework and vessels.
It is particulary suited to small diameter pipes and instrument tubing such as impulse or analyser lines.
It can be cut-to-length at site and exact piping lengths can be matched without any complicated design considerations.
FREEZSTOP MICRO is approved for use in non-hazardous and hazardous areas to world wide standards.
Its self-regulating characteristics improve safety and reliability.
FREEZSTOP MICRO will not overheat or burnout, even when overlapped upon itself. Its power output is self-regulated in response to the pipe temperature.
The installation of FREEZSTOP MICRO is quick and simple and requires no special skills or tools. Termination, splicing and power connection components are all provided in convenient kits.

 

INHERENTLY TEMPERATURE-SAFE

 

“ The inherent ability to self-regulate at a temperature level below the maximum product rating and withstand temperature of the insulating materials, without the need for temperature control.”
Similar competitor self-regulating products are typically limited to a maximum energised temperature, typically 65ºC at which point, their retained power output prevent the cable from selfregulating at its own limiting temperatures. All such products require temperature control to ensure their own temperature safety.

 

ACCESSORIES:

Heat Trace supply a complete range of accessories including termination/splice kits, end seals, junction boxes and controls. Such items carry separate approvals from the heating cables. Use only approved components, as per system certification.

 

FURTHER INFORMATION:

 

Please consult the appropriate termination instructions and the Heat Trace Installation, Maintenance and Testing Manual (HTDIMM 010) for further details.
