Pipe Freeze Protection
Pipe Freeze Protection
In cold climates, it is necessary to plan ahead to ensure that pipes, sprinkler systems, and sewer drains do not freeze. Warmup self-regulating cable is a perfect solution for these applications because it regulates its output depending on the ambient temperature, making it more energy-efficient to run. Warmup self-regulating cable is well suited for both residential and industrial applications and can be installed indoors and out.
Spools are available in 250, 500 & 1000ft lengths, and outputs of 5W & 8W. Cables are rated for Class 1 Div 2 and Class 1 Div 1 environments.
This non-jacketed cable is suitable for indoor residential pipe protection. Available in 250ft spools with connection accessories.
From 6ft to 100ft, these kits are ideal for DIY plug-in environments. Rated Wet and Dry for Pipe Freeze Protection and Roof/Gutter Deicing.
Accessories for self-regulating cables
Non-strip field connection box.
In-line splicing box for fast and weathertight connections in the field.
Power connection junction box (6 x6 x3) with a pipe-mounting bracket for self-regulating connections.
3-Way T-Splice box for fast and weathertight connections in the field.
Ambient temperature control for pipe freeze protection and deicing applications. It can be set from 0°F to 120°F trigger point. It comes with a 5ft bulb sensor. 25A (120/208 and 240V).
“Plug and Play” controller and power panel for heat tracing cables on freeze protection and deicing applications.
How does it work?
Warmup cables are built with two copper conductors separated by a polymer matrix that expands and contracts with the ambient temperature. This, in turn, varies the output of the cable, so that the colder it gets, the more heat it puts out. Cables are secured to pipes in linear or spiraling fashion and connected to automatic temperature controllers.
While self-regulating cables vary the output automatically, adding a controller is recommended to turn off the system in above-freezing temperatures. A simple TRF-115 controller will activate and turn off the system above/below 40 degrees and switch smaller runs up to 22 amps. The TRACE-2 controller will provide GFEP protection to the circuit and handle up to 30A runs.
