Features of Raychem 2502 Frostex Heating Cable
The RAYCHEM Frostex residential pipe freeze protection system is designed to freeze protect dry or weather-proofed, insulated, above ground residential water pipes. The heating cable uses a self-regulating conductive core that reacts to changes in temperature. As the environment becomes colder, the cable increases its wattage output generating greater heat. Conversely as the environment warms, the cable decreases its wattage output which produces less heat. Therefore, every inch of pipe and valve consistently receives the amount of heat needed to prevent freezing.
- Voltage: 120 Volt
- Thermal Output at 50°F (10°C): 3 Watt/Ft
- 500 ft Reel
- Cable Type: Self Regulating Heat Trace
- Maximum Circuit Length: 50 ft (15 m)
Each heating cable circuit requires a Frostex 9800 FlexFit plug kit (SOLD SEPARATELY). This kit must be used with braided Frostex heating cable. It is not compatible with, and should not be used with, earlier versions of Frostex that have no braid. Included in each kit is a specially designed ground-fault protected plug for connection to an electrical outlet and an end seal for sealing the cable end that does not plug in. A built-in power cord saves money by eliminating the need for additional heating cable from the pipe to the outlet.
