FailSafe Super (FSS)

FailSafe Super is an industrial grade self-regulating heating cable that can be used for freeze protection or temperature maintenance of pipework and vessels up to 225°C. It can be cut-to-length at site to match exact piping lengths without any complicated design considerations.

FailSafe Super is approved for use in non-hazardous, and hazardous areas to world wide standards. Its self-regulating characteristics improve safety and reliability.

FailSafe Super will not overheat or burnout, even when overlapped upon itself. Its power output self-regulates in response to the pipe temperature.

Accreditation & certifications - FailSafe Super (FSS)

Example of Applications

  • Freeze protection of pipework & vessels
  • Process temperature maintenance

Benefits

  • Can be cut to length
  • Output self-regulates in response to pipe temperature
  • High outputs to 75W/m at 10ºC

FailSafe Super is available with a corrosion resistant fluoropolymer outer jacket (FSS-CF).

The installation of FailSafe Super is quick and simple and requires no special skills or tools. Termination, splicing and power connection components are all provided in convenient kits.

  • Product Specification - Maximum Withstand Temperature 225°C (437°F)

    FailSafe Super is available in 15, 30, 45, 60 and 75 W/m outputs as illustrated on the graph to the right. The graph shows the nominal power output at 230V when installed on insulated metal pipes.
