Heat Trace Controls, Panels, Accessories / Snow / Ice Controls


Chromalox Snow Melting Systems are used to keep walkways, entrance ways, parking garage ramps, loading ramps, stairways and other areas free of snow and ice. These electric snow melting systems reduce snow removal costs, help to avoid slip and fall accidents, and help prevent damage to expensive flooring caused by tracked in sand, salt or other chemicals used to melt ice. Chromalox utilizes mineral insulated heating cable with a rugged, chemical resistance Alloy 825 sheath. Watt densities to 50 watts per foot are available in voltages from 120 to 480 volts. Chromalox carries a complete line of snow melting controls and sensors from single point on/off snow switches to multi point distributed systems. Controls are designed to simplify and economize system operation.
