The RAYCHEM VPL Power-Limiting Industrial Heating Cable is a cutting-edge solution tailored for process temperature maintenance, freeze protection, and pipe heat tracing in demanding industrial environments. VPL Industrial Heating Cable is engineered to endure temperatures up to 455°F/235°C and intermittent exposure up to 500°F/260°C, this cable is optimized for reliability and performance.
RAYCHEM VPL features a robust fluoropolymer outer jacket (-CT) that exhibits exceptional resistance to aggressive chemicals, the VPL offers durability and protection against corrosive elements. Its power-limiting design, comprising coiled resistor alloy heating elements around two parallel bus cables, allows the cable to be precisely cut to length and terminated on-site, enhancing flexibility and efficiency during installation.
The VPL’s power output decreases with rising temperatures, ensuring a relatively flat power temperature curve, which translates into low start-up currents and consistent high output in elevated temperatures. Its versatility extends to overlap capabilities, making it adaptable to various applications.
Safety is paramount, as the VPL cables are approved for use in both hazardous and non-hazardous locations, meeting the stringent requirements of the U.S. National Electrical Code and the Canadian Electrical Code. This makes them a reliable and compliant choice for industrial setups.
