As the days get shorter, maintenance concerns return to freeze protection. Electric heat tracing to prevent freezing damage to pipes fittings and instrumentation is a common solution. But how can we make it removable for occasional routine maintenance?
The answer is Traced Heating Jackets from HTS/Amptek®.
Electric Tracing Cable, positioned within the removable Jacket shown, provides the necessary heat to keep this filter set protected from Winter cold. Velcro flaps and D-Ring straps provide a snug closure method, allowing quick removal and replacement. Once plumbed, these filters are suspended permanently in line on the piping circuit. For easy fit-up, the Jackets must be manufactured with slits and holes to accommodate all of the obstructions. Power leads may exit the Jacket via a grommet, or cord-grip, in flex conduit, armored cable or in this case simply SO cord set and plug.

The Heating Cable and lead wire assembly is rugged and weather tight. Electrical connections are enclosed within the Condulet assembly which remains inside the wall of the Jacket. The SO power lead cord and plug exits the Jacket via a grommet and has sufficient length to reach the receptacle.
