Nelson™ Heat Trace 230V Type LT Self-Regulating Heater Cable
Nelson™ Heat Trace™ 230V Type LT Self-Regulating Heater Cable
Nelson™ Heat Trace LT Series self-regulating heater cable is ideal for maintaining fluid flow under low ambient conditions.
It is used for freeze protection and low watt density process temperature maintenance of pipes and vessels. LT Series are 230 Volt heating cables designed for use in ordinary (unclassified) and hazardous (classified) locations. Typical applications include process water, lube oil, fire protection, dust suppression and structure deicing. The standard cable is supplied with a tinned copper metal braid and a fluoropolymer or modified polyolefin overjacket suitable for exposure to excessive moisture, organic and inorganic chemicals, solvents, etc.

Features

  • Type LT self-regulating heater cable is a parallel circuit electric heater strip. An irradiation cross-linked conductive polymer core material is extruded over the multi-stranded, tinplated, 1.3 mm² copper bus wires. Two jackets provide extra dielec
  • Operating principle: The parallel bus wires apply voltage along the entire length of the heater cable. The conductive core provides a continuous parallel heating element permitting the cable to be cut to any length in the field with no dead or cold zones
