Can you splice MI cable?
Pyrotenax commercial MI wiring cables are approved as a complete system only when used with the appropriate Pyrotenax termination and splice kits. The use of nonapproved components will compromise the reliability of the system and will invalidate approvals and warranties.
What is Mi heat trace cable?
Mineral insulated (MI) heating cables are designed for high exposure temperatures in hazardous and non-hazardous areas. MI heating cables are used when high power output or extreme resistance to environmental corrosives is needed.
How do I support my MI cable?
Type MI cable shall be supported and secured by staples, straps, hangers, or similar fittings, designed and installed so as not to damage the cable, at intervals not exceeding 1.8 m (6 ft).
Can MI cable be direct buried?
The cable is solid and constructed with an extruded copper sheath that makes it impervious to liquids. Neither water, process liquids or corrosive solutions can migrate into the system. In copper and brass corrosive environments, or for direct burial.
Can heat trace cable be spliced?
Nelson™ Heat Trace splice connection kits are used to connect two heater cables to each other in a splice configuration. It may be used to extend cable length, connect different wattage cables together or to provide access to service removable equipment.
Can you splice together heat tape?
Use this kit to make a splice or tee connection. For use when you need to branch custom-length heat tape in multiple directions to achieve complex configurations using a single heat tape power source.
How does MI heat trace work?
MI heating cables are designed to give a specific power output based on the circuit requirements. The power output of the cable is determined by the heated length of the cable, the power supply voltage and the resistance of the heater conductor.
How is mineral insulated heating cable used?
Mineral insulated heating cables are used to cover applications that require high temperatures (e.g. chemical, petrochemical, oil and gas industries). Unlike resistance heating cables or self-regulating heating cables, mineral insulated heating cables can withstand temperatures up to 1000°C.
What is Type MI cable?
Type MI cable consists of one or more (up to 19) copper conductors inside a continuous copper sheath, which provides excellent corrosion and mechanical protection. It also serves as an equipment-grounding conductor. (A stainless-steel sheathed variant requires an additional copper equipment-grounding conductor.)
What are 3 acceptable ways to support cable runs?
Typical cable-support systems include cable trays, ladder racks, enclosed wire pathways, clamps, rings, and fasteners.
Can you put MI cable in conduit?
install dual conductor M.i. cable in straight conduit runs only. Please contact Delta-Therm technical support at 1-800- 526-7887 if you have conduit bends.
What is mi (mineral insulated) cable?
Nelson™ Heat Trace MI (mineral insulated) Cable is a metal sheathed cable that uses a metallic conductor as the heating element. It is custom designed and fabricated for specific applications.
What is heat trace mineral insulated cable?
Nelson™ Heat Trace Mineral Insulated Cable Nelson™ Heat Trace MI (mineral insulated) Cable is a metal sheathed cable that uses a metallic conductor as the heating element. It is custom designed and fabricated for specific applications.
What is Mimi cable used for?
MI Cable is a high performance, industrial grade heat tracing cable used for applications requiring high temperature exposure, immunity to stress corrosion, high maintain temperature, under tank heating (cryogenic tanks), high power output, constant power output over entire, rugged cable construction heater length, and extended heater life.
