Raychem XTV, HXTV and KTV industrial heat-tracing cables are suitable for maximum intermittent exposure temperatures of up to 482°F (250°C). Previous versions were limited to temperatures of up to 420°F (215°C). At the same time, the company has incorporated a system approach testing methodology to bring the cables into compliance with the latest revision of the international standard IEEE 515. The test data and algorithms gathered through this testing methodology provide improvements to maximum sheath temperatures of the cables when using stabilized designs in hazardous locations. As a result, the self-regulating heat-tracing cables can be used for applications with higher worst-case maximum pipe temperatures (process or runaway temperature, or control-limited setpoint) within the same temperature classification. This will simplify the design and installation, particularly for applications with temperature class T3 (200°C) classification.
