Chromalox CZH Cable is a multi-purpose
heating cable designed for commercial pipe
tracing, embedded floor warming, and frost
heave prevention. Chromalox’s CZH Cable is
constructed of a parallel heating core that produces
uniform thermal output over its entire
length. It can be easily cut to length, spliced,
tee to more easily follow piping networks.
Chromalox’s CZH Heating Cable can be placed
in conduit embedded in concrete to prevent
frost heave or placed onto concrete slabs for
supplemental comfort heat. Chromalox’s CZH
cable can even be placed inside of conduit for
applications making replacement of the heating
cable possible. Chromalox’s CZH is truly a
versatile heating cable solution.
WARNING — A ground fault protection device
is required by NEC to minimize the danger of
fire if the heating cable is damaged or improperly
installed. A minimum trip level of 30mA is
recommended to minimize nuisance tripping.
- Durable, non-aging fluoropolymer jacket ensures long service life and can be used in some hostile environments.
- Flexible, easy to install on most equipment and delivers long-term reliable performance.
- Accurate temperature, reliable electric heat that can be consistently controlled and easily monitored.
- Parallel circuitry allows cut-to-length.
- Low profile, uses standard size thermal insulation on piping and process equipment.

This is a recommendation guide. Chromalox cannot warrant any Electric Heat Trace against failure by sheath degradation if such failure
is the result of operating conditions beyond the control of the heater manufacturer. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to make the
ultimate choice of sheath material based on knowledge of the chemical composition of the corrosive solution, character of materials
entering the solution, and controls which maintains the process.
