Constant Wattage Polymer Insulated Cables

The most proven and reliable range of HEW-THERM Polymer Insulated (PI) series heating systems is the industry-preferred solution when circuit lengths exceed the ratings of parallel heating cables and the number of power supply points is a constraint. Operating to voltages up to 750 V, Pyrotenax are series resistance heating cables which can provide:

  • Temperature maintenance up to 200°C;
  • Exposure temperatures up to 300°C;
  • Circuit lengths from a few metres to approximately 5 kilometres

Unit Of Measurement (UOM):

The stranded high temperature conductor is nickel plated to ensure a long life at elevated temperatures in corrosive environments. It is electrically isolated using an innovative sandwich construction of selected high-temperature fluoropolymers. A braid of nickel plated copper strands provides extra mechanical protection as well as a low Ohmic resistance earth path. A final PTFE jacket ensures optimum chemical resistance and highest temperature withstand capabilities.

Constant Wattage Polymer Insulated Cables

How it works

Heat is generated in the central conductor through the principle of Ohmic resistance heating. A variety of conductor materials is used, depending on the specific resistance requirements.

Power output and temperature of a PI series heating system depend on the specific application. Design parameters including type/resistance used, circuit length, applied voltage and electrical configuration directly influence the performance of the heating system.

Design and product selection should be carried out by qualified personnel using appropriate design software. Any change to these parameters can be critical and requires a re-validation of the design.

Benefits

• Large variety of resistances

PI heating cables are available in a very wide resistance range to meet the requirements of the broadest range of applications.

• Easy termination on-site

They can easily be terminated in the field. The fabrication method keeps the cables very flexible and allows for easy stripping while printed metre marks facilitate on-site handling.

• Maximum chemical reistance of PTFE

The use of PTFE provides maximum chemical resistance and ensures the highest lifetime insulation resistance over the entire temperature.

Applications

PI heating systems can be used for applications involving maintain temperatures up to 200°C and exposure temperatures up to 300°C. Maximised circuit lengths can significantly reduce the total installated cost.

XPI-NH

HEW-THERM Polymer Insulated (PI) series heating cable for use in non-hazardous areas. The heating cable can be used for temperatures up to 260°C and provides the highest chemical resistance and good mechanical strength, particularly at elevated temperatures.

XPI

HEW-THERM Polymer Insulated (PI) series heating cable for use in hazardous areas (gas and dust environments). The heating cable can be used for temperatures up to 260°C with an intermittent exposure up to 300°C. The inner insulation layer consists of a sandwich construction of high temperature fluoropolymers and PTFE and the outer jacket is made of PTFE, providing a highly flexible, easy to terminate robust heating cable with the highest chemical resistance and excellent mechanical strength (4 J impact resistance), particularly at elevated temperatures.

XPI-S

HEW-THERM Polymer Insulated (PI) series heating cable for use in hazardous areas (gas and dust environments). The heating cable can be used for temperatures up to 260°C with an intermittent exposure up to 300°C. The inner insulation layer consists of an extra thick sandwich construction of high temperature fluoropolymers and PTFE and the outer jacket is made of PTFE, providing a highly flexible, easy to terminate very robust heating cable with the highest chemical resistance and most excellent mechanical strength (7 J impact resistance), particularly at elevated temperatures.
