MiniTracer (MTF)

MiniTracer (MTF) 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).

MiniTracer (MTF) is particularly suited to applications requiring longer circuit lengths than those available for MicroTracer (EMTF).

MiniTracer (MTF) has Factory Mutual (IEEE) approval for use in non-hazardous and hazardous areas.

MiniTracer (MTF) has a fluoropolymer outer jacket (MTF-CF) and so offers excellent corrosion resistant properties.

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