Freezstop Low Voltage Wide (FLVw)

Freezstop Low Voltage Wide is an industrial/commercial grade self-regulating heating cable that can be used for freeze protection or temperature maintenance of pipework and vessels in the construction and refrigeration industries. It can be cut-to-length at site to match exact piping lengths without any complicated design considerations.

Freezstop Low Voltage Wide will not overheat or burnout, even when overlapped upon itself. Its power output self-regulates in response to the pipe temperature. It's self-regulating characteristics improve safety and reliability.

Accreditation & certifications - Freezstop Micro (FSM)

Example of Applications

  • Freeze protection of pipework & vessels
  • Process temperature maintenance

Benefits

  • Can be cut to length
  • Suited to small diameter pipes and instrument tubing
  • Output self-regulates in response to pipe temperature
  • No overheating or burnout

Freezstop Low Voltage Wide is available with a corrosion resistant thermoplastic outer jacket (FLVw-CT) and when greater corrosion resistance is required a fluoropolymer outer jacket (FLVw-CF).

The installation of Freezstop Low Voltage Wide 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 85°C (185°F)

    Freezstop Low Voltage Wide is available in 12, 17 and 30 W/m outputs as illustrated on the graph to the right.
    The graph shows the nominal power output at 12V or 24V when installed on insulated metal pipes.
