About the Product

Chromalox CPM self-regulating heating cable provides safe, reliable heat tracing for process temperature maintenance and freeze protection of pipes, valves, tanks and similar applications. Constructed of industrial grade 16 AWG buss wire with metal braid and optional overjacketing, CPM ensures operating integrity in most hostile industrial environments. The 420°F (215°C) maximum exposure temperature rating allows steam cleaning of process equipment with up to 300 psig steam.

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.

CPM - Self-Regulating Medium Temperature


+  Self-Regulating, Energy Efficient
+  16 AWG Buss Wire

+  Maximum Continuous Exposure Temperature, Power Off, 420°F (215°C)
+  Process Maintenance Applications
+  Freeze Protection Applications
+  Single or Dual Monitor Wires Available
+  Steam Cleanable on Process Equipment Up to 300 PSIG
+  5, 8, 10, 15 and 20 W/Ft.
+  120 and 208 - 277 Volt From Stock
+  Approximate Size .47 in. W x .20 in. H
+  Minimum Bend Radius 1-1/8 in.
+  For Use on Metallic Pipes Only
+  CSA certified for ordinary areas.
+  Energy efficient, self-regulating CPM uses less energy when less heat is required.
+  Easy to install, CPM can be cut to any length (up to max. circuit length) in the field.
+  Field splices can be performed easily in minutes with no scrap or wasted cold sections.
+  With lower installed cost than steam tracing, CPM features less maintenance expense and downtime.
+  CPM can be overlapped without burnout, which simplifies heat tracing of in-line process equipment such as valves, elbows and pumps.
+  Because CPM is self-regulating, overtemperature conditions are minimized.
+  Chromalox termination, splice, tee and end seal kits reduce installation time.
