Thanks to the thermostat and the self limiting heating cable

GELTRACE™ range is used for the frost protection of pipes. In the protigel™+ version, the thermostat automatically switches on the tape when the temperature falls under +5°C. It enables substantial energy savings and offers in complement the advantages and the safety of a self-regulating tape.
Avoids drainings and permanent use of hydraulic networks. Easy to implement. Available on stock.
Adjustable length according to the network size. Tape finished and controlled in the factory.
No overheating risk thanks to its self regulating system.
When it is cold, the polymer shrinks and facilitates the flow of current, thereby increasing the temperature of the cable. As it gets warmer, the polymer expands and prevents the current: the Self Regulating cable heats less than before.
Finally, a « parallel » technology allows the cable to be cut to desired length directly on the site. Exact fit the length of heating cable for your needs.

Cordon chauffantLes cordons chauffants type DrainFree ou plus généralement ELR-S, sont spécialement conçues pour les applications dans le secteur de la réfrigération commerciale, industrielle et de la climatisation.

Parfaitement étanches grâce aux terminaisons froides intégrées, terminés et contrôlés en usine, elles sont extrêmement flexibles et fonctionnelles grâce aux caractéristiques spécifiques des matériaux qui les composent et à leur technologie de fabrication particulière. Cette dernière consiste en un bobinage de fil résistif en alliage Nickel/Chrome, Cuivre/Nickel ou similaire sur un support formé d’un fil en fibre de verre. Le bobinage ainsi obtenu est protégé à l’extérieur au moyen d’un composé spécial en silicone qui assure une tenue diélectrique élevée et permet au câble chauffant de fonctionner dans un large intervalle de températures : -60°C à +200°C.

Les cordons peuvent être éventuellement recouvert d’une tresse métallique multibrins qui garantit une protection mécanique élevée, une plus grande dissipation de la température et assure le contact de mise à la terre. Ils doivent être mis sous tension uniquement lors des cycles de dégivrage. Dans le cas de tuyauteries en plastique installées en chambre froide à faible température négative, nous vous conseillons d’utiliser des rubans chauffants autorégulants type TRACECO-20 ou TRACECO-30.

1 – Vulcanisation en caoutchouc silicone à tenue hermétique.

2 – Isolation en caoutchouc silicone avec couverture de tresse métallique multibrin (en option).

3 – Point coloré qui indique la limite de la section chaud-froid.

4 – Marquage données de plaque (sur toute la longueur à intervalles de 20 cm environ ou bien sur un spécial morceau de gaine).

5 – Câble résistif chauffant isolè en caoutchouc silicone.

6 – Câble électrique de retour isolé en caoutchouc silicone.
