Understanding Self-Regulating Heating Cable Ratings
Heat-Line freeze protection systems are constructed with the highest quality self-regulating heating cables. The advantage of self-regulating heating cable technology is that it increases heat output with cold and conversely decreases heat output with warmth. Self-regulating technology allows the addition of insulation as it will never over-heat, even when the pipe is dry. Heat-Line self-regulating heating cables provide reliable, safe, long-lasting, and energy-efficient heating cable systems.
In this month’s video VLOG, we detail the criteria set by electrical regulatory agencies that heating cables must adhere to and explain the meaning of the ratings associated with self-regulating heating cables. For example, find out what it means when a heating cable carries a rating of 5 watts/foot at 50°F.
