nVent announces the release of its nVent RAYCHEM HTV self-regulating heating cable designed for critical industrial applications subject to high temperatures. The cable operates at continuous operating temperatures of 205°C/400°F and can withstand temperatures up to 260°C/500°F. It retains 95% of its power output after 10 years of performance at 205°/400°F significantly reducing risk of downtime while increasing safety and productivity on site.
“While long-term design life is important, the power retention profile over time is equally important. With 95 percent power retention for 10 years and a more than 30-year design life, our customers can be confident of improved process integrity and lower contingencies for decades to come. In an increasingly electrified world, the HTV heating cable will save our customers money and increase their overall operational efficiencies.” declared Marty Lee, nVent vice president of product management.
Enhanced performance achieved through the use of a semi-conducting polymer nanocomposite
“We have almost 75 years of expertise in polymer materials science and have gained new knowledge about how best to construct the highest temperature composites. We created a ground-breaking, new semi-conductive polymer nanocomposite material with increased thermal stability, which provides superior power retention at high temperatures.”said Linda Kiss, nVent vice president of engineering.
Internationally certified for use in hazardous areas, the self-regulating cable offers professionals the opportunity to advance their process integrity and operational efficiency for decades to come.
