Pipe Frost Protection
Pipe Frost Protection
Trace Heating Projects plug-in electrical water pipe frost protection cable is an economical and energy efficient way to keep your water flowing all winter long.
The water pipe frost protection heating cable kit works directly from your local voltage supply. It comes complete with an internal thermostat that detects when the temperature drops below 5?C.
It also has a 2m long power lead and a 13A plug to go straight into your regular power outlet.*
Reliable and economical way to keep your pipes and taps ice free all winter, every winter.
The heater operates with a low power consumption. It effectively protects your water supply and sewerage lines against frost and damage.
Our water pipe frost protection kit prevents the creation of condensed moisture on pipes. It extends the service life and reduces repair and operational costs.
How does it work?
We use self-regulating cables as a heating element in the kit. This ensures that the unit will never overheat even in cases of the cable overlapping. It automatically adjusts the heating temperature in response to the ambient temperature. This means that our water pipe frost protection kit can be used on a pipe exposed to different temperatures (e.g. with one part installed outdoor and the other inside).
The heater kits require no maintenance and control; freeing your time to spend on other essential tasks!
- Simply fix the heating tape to the pipe.
- Apply the adhesive tape provided along the length.
- Apply thermal insulation and seal the down the joints with the tape provided.
- Place the caution labels on the outer surface to ensure a safe installation.
- Plug into your supply and switch on. It’s a simple as that!
