Heat Trace for Freeze Protection
Manufacturers who must keep product flowing need a heat trace partner they can trust. That’s why Ohio Valley Industrial Services uses Chromalox for our HotCaps™ Removable Insulation Covers.
The Chromalox heat trace cable line includes cables suitable for process maintenance, pipe and vessel freeze protection and roof and gutter de-icing applications. With this wide variety of cables available Chromalox can design systems for the most demanding and complex applications while helping reduce costs, increase sustainability, and decrease risk.
Types of cables include:
- Constant Wattage
- Mineral Insulated
- Commercial Freeze Protection
- Hazardous Area
- Series Resistance Long Line
We have the qualified personnel to install heat trace in your system. They will make sure that everything is installed correctly and operates properly.
Trace and Insulate
We have the ability to wire heat trace and insulate your equipment in house.

Types of Cable
SRL, Self-Regulating Low-Temperature Cable
Chromalox SRL self-regulating heating cable provides safe, reliable heat tracing for freeze protection of metal and plastic pipes, valves, tanks, and similar applications. Constructed of industrial grade 16 AWG buss wire with a tinned copper braid and optional overjacketing, SRL ensures operating integrity in Division 2 hazardous environments as well as certain corrosive industrial environments. SRL heating cable has a maximum maintenance temperature rating of 150°F (65°C).
SRP, Self-Regulating Process-Temperature Cable
Chromalox SRP self-regulating heating cable provides safe, reliable heat tracing for process maintenance applications to 225°F (110˚C) or freeze protection of pipes and tanks with high heat losses. Constructed of industrial grade 16 AWG buss wire with a tinned copper braid and optional overjacketing, SRP cable ensures operating integrity in most hostile industrial environments.
SRM, Self-Regulating Medium-Temperature Cable
SRM self-regulating heating cable provides safe, reliable heat tracing for process temperature maintenance and freeze protection of pipes, valves, tanks and similar applications. Constructed of industrial grade 16 AWG buss wire with metal braid and optional overjacketing, Chromalox SRM cable ensures operating integrity in most hostile industrial environments. The 420°F (215°C) maximum exposure temperature rating allows steam cleaning of process equipment with up to 300 psig (2 MPa) steam.
CWM, Constant-Wattage Medium-Temperature Cable
Chromalox CWM constant-wattage heating cable is a proven, reliable solution for industrial process temperature maintenance and freeze protection. CWM cable features a parallel heating core that produces uniform thermal output over its entire length. It is flexible at most ambient temperatures and can be wrapped around piping and complex fittings. It is rugged, easy to monitor and maintain temperature, and has zero inrush at start-up. With 392°F (200°C) fIuoropolymer electrical insulation overjacketing, CWM cable has outstanding electrical and thermal properties, and is well suited for most chemically hostile environments. An extensive range of wattages and voltages is available immediately from Chromalox stock.
