Description
The MLTV family of self-regulating heating cables provides the solution to water pipe freeze-protection for residential application. MLTV heating cables have the maximum maintain or continuous exposure temperature 65 and can withstand intermittent exposure to temperatures up to 85.

Features

  1. Lower installed cost than steam tracing, less maintenance expense and less downtime.
  2. Easy installation due to on-site assembly and can be cut to any length (up to max circuit length) required on site with no wasted cables
  3. Energy efficient, automatically varies it’s power output in response to pipe temperature changes
  4. Self-limiting, without overheating or burnout even while overlapping
  5. Installation in residential, commercial
  6. Very suitable for use on/in small pipes such as home water pipes
  7. 2-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects

The above numbers are for circuit length estimation only. For more detailed information please contact your local Xuhui representative. Xuhui requires the use of a 30 mA residual current device to provide maximum safety and protection from fire. Where design results in higher leakage current, the preferred trip level for adjustable devices is 30 mA above any inherent capacitive leakage characteristic of the heater as specified by the trace heater supplier or alternatively, the next common available trip level for non adjustable devices, with a maximum of 300 mA. All safety aspects need to be proven.
