Pipes up to 50mm diameter can be protected by a PW cable installed in a straight line. When the cable is slightly longer than the pipe, it can be wound in a gentle, evenly spaced helix. The entire installation (pipe, cable and thermostat) must be covered with insulation (maximum thickness 20mm).
PF-T fixing tape is supplied in 33m rolls and is ideal for fixing heating cable to the pipe. We recommend securing the cable at 200mm intervals.
When heating a plastic pipe, the pipe should be wrapped in aluminium tape before the heating cable is installed. AL-50 is supplied in 45m x 50mm rolls.
Where PW cables are used with plastic pipe that may be empty, the pipe should be wrapped in a double layer of aluminium tape. One before the cable is installed and after the cable is installed. The second layer will cover both pipe and cable.
PF-L warning labels are supplied as a pack of 10 and should be fixed to the outside of the insulation at regular intervals.
