Product Features


MicroTracer (EMTF) is a constant wattage cable that can be used for freeze protection and temperature maintainance of pipework and vessels.  It has a maximum temperature of 200°C (392°F).

MicroTracer (EMTF) is particularly suited to refrigeration applications, small bore instrument lines or process pipework located in non-hazardous areas.

MicroTracer (EMTF) can be cut-to-length at site to match exact piping lengths  without any complicated design considerations.

MicroTracer (EMTF) is has a fluoropolymer outer jacket (EMTF-CF) and so offers excellent corrosion resistant properties.

The installation of MicroTracer (EMTF) is quick and simple and requires no special skills or tools. Termination, splicing and power connection components are all provided in convenient kits. See Product, Application and Documentation Links below.
