Approvals

VTM is an industrial grade self-regulating heating cable that can be used for freeze protection of pipelines and vessels.

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 VTM 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.

Termination, splicing and power connection components are available in convenient kits.
