Alternative to fluoropolymer heating cables in the T4 temperature class

Paul Boughton

Bartec has completed its portfolio of heating cables for electric trace heating: the newly developed, self-limiting MSB heating cables close the gap between currently available self-limiting PSB and HSB heating cables. They are suitable for use in the T4 temperature class (94/9/EG). The maximum operating temperature is +110°C when on and 130°C when off.

In contrast to standard fluoropolymer heating cables, the investment costs are considerably lower in a MSB heating circuit. The new development also provides clear savings over the entire lifecycle. Thanks to the TPC sheathing, the heating cables are resistant to corrosion and the chemical effects of oils, lubricants and many other chemicals.

In addition to the heating cables, BARTEC also offers the compatible connection technology for installing complete heating circuits certified in accordance with IEC and EN 60079-30-1. Due to the variations and combinations available with this type tested and approved heating system, individual, on-site inspections are no longer necessary.
