PRO-Tect: Pipe Freeze Protection Self-Regulating Heating Cable Description

Cold temperatures and non-flowing water pipes don’t mix well. Residentially, these frozen pipes can mean inconvenience and high repair costs. In an industrial or light-commercial setting, it can mean huge losses in productivity and potential damage to expensive property. The PRO-Tect Pipe Freeze Protection Self-Regulating Heating Cable from WarmlyYours provides a reliable, energy efficient defense to protect vulnerable pipes from freezing.

This trace heating product is great for protecting pipes that are located in poorly insulated areas or that are located on perimeter walls. The durable, thermoplastic outer-jacket makes this product impervious to the elements, which means it can be used for exterior pipes and in wet locations.

The PRO-Tect heat tracing product is also self-regulating. This means the power output (watts per linear foot) of the product will fluctuate based on the cable’s temperature. This is automatic and ensures both energy efficiency and low operating costs. It also helps prevent overlapped or criss-crossed cables from overheating. This particular cable has a nominal heat output of 5 watts per linear foot when the cable is at 50°F (10°).

This 250’ length of 240V heating cable can be used to protect pipes that are 250’ long or shorter. With the use of Power Connection Kit (SR-PWR-KIT) accessory, which is sold separately, it can be trimmed and end-capped to exact size by the installer.

Features:

  • Nominal power output at 50°F (10°C): 5W per linear ft.
  • 240 VAC, hardwired electrical connection
  • Durable, yet flexible, construction
  • Automatically varies wattage for optimal energy savings
  • Can be overlapped or criss-crossed
  • Safe: cULus and cCSAus listed
  • Warranty: 10-years

Customer Questions & Answers

PRO-Tect: Pipe Freeze Protection Self-Regulating Heating Cable has 21 Questions and Answers.

Don't see the answer you're looking for? Post your question

Will pipe freeze protection cables work on DC voltage?

No. They are not designed to be powered by DC voltage. They must be used with AC voltage.

Will heat tape really keep my pipes from freezing?

Simply put, yes--the right type of heat tape will really keep your pipes from freezing. By applying gentle heat, heat tape can prevent the water in your pipes from turning to ice and blocking the flow of water--or worse. Combined with proper insulation, heat tape regulates the overall temperature of your water pipes.

What is the power output of this cable?

We sell three different max power outputs: 10W/ft. 8W/ft., and 5W/ft. Because these cables are self-regulating, the actual power output will depend on the temperature (i.e. the lower the temperature, the higher the power output).

How much cable will I need for my project?

The amount of cable needed depends on the size and type of pipe, and on the lowest expected temperature. Once you know the type of pipe (metal or plastic), pipe diameter, length of pipe, and the minimum expected temperature, you can use this form to request a quote. Just follow the instructions on the form to get it back to us.

How does this type of cable work?

Self-regulating heating cables, like PRO-Tect: Pipe Freeze Protection cables, use a conductive polymer core, which continually adjusts its heat output.
This is why ­­­­­this type of cable, unlike some heat tapes, won’t burn out if it is wrapped closely together, overlapped, or overinsulated. This also means lower operating costs and increased energy efficiency.
