The Xarex XHT Self-Regulating Heating Cable is designed for freeze protection and process temperature maintenance of metal and non-metal pipes and vessels and equipment.

XHT heating cable system is certified for ordinary and hazardous areas with maximum maintain temperature of 150°F (65°C) and intermittent exposure  temperature of 185°F (85°C). Use of Xarex connection kits for XHT installation is required to comply with system approval, ensuring safe operation and reliable thermal performance. The CT type outer jacket of this heating cable has high chemical resistance and therefore can be used in the area where organic chemicals or corrosives may be present.
