Harsh Environment - Constant Wattage Heat Trace Cable

Harsh environment, constant wattage, heat trace cable

Made in America

Our CW12 harsh environment, constant wattage heating cable is a proven, reliable solution for industrial process temperature maintenance and freeze protection. CW12 features a parallel heating core that produces uniform thermal output over its entire length. Using a single power point, you can easily configure and install a heat tracing system as short as several feet or as long as 780 feet right in the field. With the optional 392°F fluoropolymer electrical insulation over-jacketing, CW12 has outstanding electrical and thermal properties, and is well suited for most chemically hostile environments.
