PT™ - Power Trace

Self Regulating Heating Cable (Class 1, Div.2)

Application

The BRITECH PT - POWER TRACE system is ideal for frost protection, maintaining temperature and heat-up in pipes, tanks, vessels or at surfaces in non-ex areas and in explosive atmospheres for process industry. High output, high temperature, chemical resistant. The system is easy to design and install utilizing the required connection kits. The cable can be cut to length at the job site and installed directly on pipes simplifying the installation process and reducing waste.

FT™ - Freeze Trace Self Regulating Heating Cable

Application

Britech FT Freeze Trace is a self-regulating heating cable for general protection against freezing in pipes in residential and commercial applications. An additional layer connected to the heating element (bonded jacket) increases the effect of the electrical insulation and provides additional protection against moisture. The heating power of the heating elements increases or decreases depending on the ambient temperature. This self regulation takes effect at every point along the heating cable. The heating power adapts to the varying ambient temperatures.

Technical Data

VOLTAGE: Available from 120 to 254 Volts (AC)
HEAT OUTPUT: 3~11 watts/ft
INSTALLATION TEMP:
Minimum installation temperature: -55C
Minimum switched on temperature: -40C
OPERATING TEMP:
Max. operating temperature switched off max. 85C (1000 hours cumulative)
Max. operating temperature switched on max. 65C
CABLE DIMENSION: 10.5mm x 6 mm
MIN. BENDING RADIUS: 25mm

ST™ - Smart Trace Self Regulating Heating Cable

Application

The Britech ST Smart Trace is a self-regulating heating cable to protect against freezing on roof or in roof gutters and drains. It can also be used as protection against freezing in pipes. A black TPE outer jacket ensures the required UV resistance. The heating power of the heating elements increases or decreases depending on the ambient temperature. This self-regulation takes effect at every point along the heating cable. The heating power adapts to the varying ambient temperatures.

Technical Data

VOLTAGE: Available from 120 to 254 Volts (AC)
HEAT OUTPUT: 3~10 watts/ft
INSTALLATION TEMP:
Minimum installation temperature: -55C
Minimum switched on temperature: -40C
OPERATING TEMP:
Max. operating temperature switched off max. 85C (1000 hours cumulative)
Max. operating temperature switched on max. 65C
CABLE DIMENSION: 11.8 mm x 5.8 mm
MIN. BENDING RADIUS: 25mm
