MicroTracer (EMTF)

MicroTracer (EMTF) is a constant wattage cable that can be used for freeze protection and temperature maintenance 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) has a fluoropolymer outer jacket (EMTF-CF) and so offers excellent corrosion resistant properties.

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