Heat Trace Cable Handles Long-Line Process Piping Applications

Chromalox announces a new heat trace cable product called the Series Long Line (SLL)heat-trace cable. SLL heat trace is similar in construction to Chromalox’s current self-regulating heat trace, making it compatible with their current accessory offering.

SLL heat trace is suitable for use on extremely long pipelines where high temperature maintenance is critical for freeze protection and viscosity maintenance. This type of heat-trace cable is suitable for use in the alternative fuels, power generation, oil and gas, chemical, food and pulp and paper industries.

Long pipelines are typically used in these operations to transfer liquids from the processing plants to the storage facilities, tank farms and transportation vessels. The SLL heat-trace cable is specifically designed with longer circuit lengths for these applications.

Chromalox model SLL heat trace can be used for continuous circuit lengths up to 7,000 feet, powered from a single source with output ranges up to 12 w/feet and voltages from 120 V to 600 V. By reducing the number of circuits, or power connections, on a long pipeline, significant cost savings can be realized by the end user. The series resistance type heat trace cables can also withstand continuous exposure to temperatures up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
