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 on site to match exact piping lengths without any complicated design considerations.
Example of Applications
- Process Pipework
- Small instrument impulse analyser lines
- Can be cut-to-length
- Available for 110V and 240VAC
- Power outputs up to 50W/m
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.
