Providing a new level of safety and convenience for laboratory heating applications, Glas-Col's tinned-copper overbraided heating tapes:
- Are grounded for increased safety .
- Offer wrap-around heating convenience.
- Improve heat transfer.
- Are usable in high-moisture areas.
- Are durable yet flexible.
Includes a separate 4-ft., 3-wire cord and locking connector. Temperature limit: 480 °F (249 °C).
Note: Power ratings are for tapes not covered by insulation when installed. If the tape is covered, the temperature should be monitored and controlled to avoid exceeding the 480 °F limit. Short, narrow tapes rated at less than 115 volts must be operated at reduced voltages, which are easily attained with a power control such as the PowrTrol or Digitrol II.
|Minimum Sizes For Close Spiral Wrapping|
|Tape Width||Object Diameter|
|1/4"||3/8" or larger|
|1/2"||3/4" or larger|
|1"||1-1/2" or larger|
Tapes should not be close spiral wrapped on objects with diameters smaller than those shown above. When applying the tape to the object to be heated, wrap it snugly so that the tape is in good contact with the object. DO NOT FOLD OR WRAP THE TAPE OVER ITSELF! This will cause a hot spot in the tape that may destroy the silicone covering.
