About the Product

Chromalox CWM constant wattage heating cable is a proven, reliable solution for industrial process temperature maintenance and freeze protection. CWM features a parallel heating core that produces uniform thermal output over its entire length. Using a single power point, you can easily configure and install a heat tracing system as short as several feet or as long as 780 feet right in the field. With 392°F (200°C) fluoropolymer electrical insulation over-jacketing, CWM has outstanding electrical and thermal properties, and is well suited for most chemically hostile environments.

Chromalox CWM Constant Wattage Heating Cables are ideally suited for applications where a particular watt density is required at all times. The heater element consists of a nichrome wire wrapped around parallel, insulated buss wires.

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.
