Freezstop Extra (FSE)
Freezstop Extra is an industrial grade self-regulating heating tape that can be used for freeze protection or temperature maintenance of pipework and vessels. It can be cut-to-length on site to match exact piping lengths without any complicated design considerations.
Freezstop Extra is approved for use in non-hazardous, and hazardous areas to worldwide standards. Its self-regulating characteristics improve safety and reliability.
Freezstop Extra will not overheat or burnout, even when overlapped upon itself. Its power output self-regulates in response to the pipe temperature.
Example of Applications
- Freeze protection of pipework & vessels
- Process temperature maintenance
- Can be cut to length
- Output self-regulates in response to pipe temperature
- No overheating or burnout
- Inherently Temperature Safe
Freezstop Extra is available with a corrosion resistant thermoplastic outer jacket (FSE-CT) and when greater corrosion resistance is required with a fluoropolymer outer jacket (FSE-CF).
The installation of Freezstop Extra is quick and simple and requires no special skills or tools. Termination, splicing and power connection components are all provided in convenient kits.
