The SLBTV family of nVent RAYCHEM self-regulating electric heat trace cables provides pipe freeze protection and low-temperature maintenance for longline heating applications. The RAYCHEM SLBTV heating cables maintain process temperatures up to 150°F (65°C) and can withstand intermittent exposure to temperatures up to 185°F (85°C). The SLBTV heating cables provide long circuit length capability. They can be used for continuous circuit lengths up to 2000 feet powered from a single source. SLBTV cables are especially well suited for tracing long pipelines containing temperature-sensitive fluids or where high reliability is required.

Technical Specifications

  1. The heating cable shall consist of two 10 AWG nickel-plated copper bus wires embedded in a self-regulating polymeric core that controls power output so that the cable can be used directly on plastic or metallic pipes. The cables shall have a temperature identification number (T-rating) of T6 (185°F or 85°C) without use of thermostats.
  2. The heating cable shall have a tinned copper braid with a resistance less than the heating cable bus wire resistance as determined in a type test (ASTM, B193, Sec. 5). The braid shall be protected from chemical attack and mechanical abuse by a fluoropolymer outer jacket.
  3. The heating cable shall be SLBTV-CT for lengths of 1125 to 2000 feet, with continuous exposure capability up to 150°F (65°C) and intermittent exposure capability up to 185°F (85°C), as manufactured by nVent Thermal Management.
