Self-Regulating Heating Cable: nVent Raychem XTV

nVent RAYCHEM XTV self-regulating trace heating cables are mainly used for freeze protection of pipes and vessels that require steam cleaning and process temperature maintenance, up to 250 °F/121 °C. They withstand intermittent exposure to 482 °F/250 °C. The fluoropolymer outer jacket (-CT) provides high chemical resistance against aggressive organics and corrosion.

Installing the nVent RAYCHEM XTV self-regulating heating cable is a straightforward process. These cables can be easily installed on pipework, tanks, or vessels using cable ties, aluminium or glass fibre tape, or suitable adhesives before covering them with insulation. The cables can be cut to any desired length, allowing for flexibility and adaptability to suit various application requirements.
