Flexelec’s range of Stopgel-Antifreeze range of electric trace-heating cables are designed to protect metal pipes from freezing. A thermostat at the end of the cable is preset to activate heating when the temperature falls below 5°C.
These cables have a flat section of 5 x 7 mm for good heat transfer and use 15 W/m. They come in kits, which include the double-insulated heating cable with a metre-long power-supply section at one end, electrical connection plug and fitting accessories. Lengths are 3, 5, 7, 10 and 15 m.
