COVERAGE:

Heating cables, cable sets, and surface heating device sets for use on system
voltages not exceeding 750 V for installation in accordance with the Canadian
Electrical Code, Part I.
Heating devices installed on or in metal and non-metallic pipes, tanks, vessels,
and related equipment and various surface heating applications.

Typical applications include

  1. the protection of pipes, tanks, and vessels, including fire protection
    systems, from freezing;
  2. maintaining required temperatures on process equipment, including pipes,
    tanks, and vessels;
  3. earth thermal storage;
  4. hot water temperature maintenance;
  5. surface heating in or under surfaces;
  6. snow melting; and
  7. de-icing of roofs and gutters.

This product Class does not include devices intended to heat or to stress
relieve pipes or vessels using eddy current, skin effect, or electric current
passed directly through the pipe or vessel wall.

This product Class does not include radiant space heating devices or space
heating requirements.

This product Class does not cover heating elements using carbon ink
dispersion.

Heating cable sets may be intended for:
