Based on silicone rubber heater technology, lengths of the heater are coiled similar to a telephone cord. The elasticity of the cord facilitates wrapping the heater around pipes, tubes and fittings. The molded end protector snaps around a pipe to provide structural support for the lead wires. Designed for applications that require heating for freeze protection or to prevent condensation, the 120 and 240 VAC heaters are available in widths up to 1 (25.4 mm) and straight lengths up to 125 (3175 mm). They can be used in applications such as water treatment and semiconductor processing.
