Self Regulating Cables
Self-Temperature regulating cable consist of two parallel metal bus wires encased in a semi-conductive polymer matrix forming a heating unit. As the electric current flows from one of the copper wires , passes the conductive polymer and arrives in the other copper wire, a close circuit is established. The electric power causes PTC polymer to heat up and consequently raises the resistance value. As the temperature increment. In other word, self regulating heating cables adjust their power output in response to the surrounding temperature.
Advantages of Self Regulating Cables
The Self-Regulating design of WHITE's Heating Cables eliminates worry about overheating or burnouts from overlapping. The conductive Polymer core automatically adjusts heat output at each point along the pipe, with no need of thermostats.
Unlike conventional heating cables, WHITE"S heating cables feature parallel circuitry. This means you can cut it an any point along its length without interrupting the heating-cable circuit.
Fast, Easy to Install
Thanks to their self-regulating, parallel-circuit design, WHITE's Heating cables require no complex installation procedures. They can be straight-traced, spiraled or overlapped. On the job, you can cut them to the exact length needed and splice or tree them, adapting each heating-cable circuit as the job requires.
Because they're self-regulating , WHITE"s Heating cables require no thermostats, so you're not bothered by breakdownds or callbacks. They will protect against freezing this winter and for many winters to come.
Hardwire them or plug them in. With two options of power connection kits, the choice is yours.
Safe on Plastic Pipes
WHITE"s Heating cables can be used on plastic as well as on metal pipes. Their self-regulating heating core adjusts automatically to protect against overheating or developing hot spots when overlapped or covered with insulation.
WHITE"s Self-Regulating Heating core generated heat when and where needed. The core continuously adjusts its heat output to the environment at every point along the heating cable, thus reducing the overall energy cost for the season
