Product Datasheet

Application Areas

Temperature maintenance or freeze protection of pipelines and vessels in non-hazardous and ex-hazardous areas


BTX is an industrial grade self-regulating heating cable that can be used for temperature maintenance or freeze protection of pipelines and vessels. It can be used in non-hazardous and ex-hazardous areas.

The power output adjusts automatically in response to the ambient temperature.

Because of its self-regulating characteristics it will not overheat even when the cable is overlapped. This guarantees maximum safety and reliability.

The installation of BTX heating cable is quick and simple and requires no special skills or tools. Because of its parallel construction the heating cable can be fitted on site to exact length without any complicated design calculations.
