The nVent Raychem brand is synonymous with self-regulating electric heat trace cables and components for industrial, commercial, and residential applications. In 1973, Raychem developed the first self-regulating electric heat trace cable. Self-regulating heating cables were a revolution then and remain unique today because they automatically adjust their power output to compensate for pipe temperature changes. They are also cut-to-length and can be terminated or extended on the job site, making them easy to design with, install and maintain. Other products included in the Raychem line include roof & gutter de-icing, pipe freeze protection (Frostex), snow melt application, XL-Trace heating cables and NuHeat floor mats.
