Snow Melt Cables

Snow Melt Cables
  • Operating Voltage: 240V & 480V
  • Output Rating: ± 50 W/ft2
  • Range of Lengths from 84' (25m) up to 500' (152m)
  • Energy Efficient Dual Conductor Heating Cable
  • Rated to a Maximum Temperature of 464˚F (240˚C)
  • Cold Lead Length 16.4' (.164m)
  • Third-party certifications: UL Recognized, CSA

Each roll of snow melt series cable has thick heating wire for embedding in concrete, asphalt, or under pavers. The cables come in maximum 500' (152m) length, providing 50 watts per square foot. The cable has a layer of shielding and insulation, suitable for low temperatures, UV resistant and environmentally friendly, making them ideal for outdoor use.

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.

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.
