AFS - 300ºC

Auto Fail Safe

SELF REGULATING

The worlds highest temperature self-regulating heating cable.

 

  • 300ºC exposure temperature withstand,(energised or switched off).
  • The worlds highest self-regulating heating cable, power output - 150W/m at 10ºC
  • Inherently temperature-safe. (ITS)
  • External temperature controls not necessary.

 

 

DESCRIPTION

 

AFS is a high strength self-regulating heating cable having temperature and power capabilities beyond those of any competitor worldwide.

Its limit of300ºC, energised or not, is beyond the limits of conventional polymers. Its high power capabilities (of up to 150W/m @ 10ºC) makes it eminently suited to medium and high temperature applications such as bitumen melt-out. Its continuous metal jacket is ductile, yet withstands high mechanical loads, thus averting damage when being installed in arduous environments. It is easy to terminate and cut-tolength. AFS is the safest ever self-regulating product for high temperature exposure; it will not overheat even when exposed to 300ºC, when energised or switched off as it is inherently temperature-safe.
IECEx & ATEX Approval Pending. A safer, more convenient option to traditional series resistance MI cables, which must be individually designed, are difficult to terminate and are not inherently temperature-safe.

 

 

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 120ºC 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.
