Self-limiting heating cables

The self-limiting heating cables for indoor are used for temperature maintenance of hot water supply and other fluids that need to maintain a certain temperature. The self-limiting capability of the cable ensures that the output of the cable increase or decrease according to ambient temperature. EChotwatt ensures hot water in all taps and savings when circulation of the whole pipe system is unnecessary.

Pipe tracing systems ensure hot water in all taps and savings when a circulating pipe system is unnecessary.

Heating cable reduces water waste as you can get hot water immediately.

High protection against the Legionella – system maintains water supply at the required temperature level and provides appropriate disinfection to suppress the Legionella bacteria.

Perfect partner system to be used in domestic hot water (DHW) systems supplied by the Lowtemperature district heating (LTDH), which is a cost and energy efficient way of building water supply in urban areas.

Lower initial investment of DHW system without circulation – appx. 50% less pipes, insulation, valves, and pumps to be installed as no return pipes and insulation are required.

Space saving – no need for return pipe gives more room in service ducts.

Energy efficient - heating cables provide power only where needed adapting output according to the ambient temperature. Also, less pipes and smaller boilers requirements for the DHW means less heat losses in the system.

The heating cable is flexible and easy to install as it can be cut to length right on site and installed directly on the pipe system.

Benefits
• Easy to install
• Cut to length on site
• Readymade lengths
• Black version is UV protected
• PVC free
