About Heat Trace Products, LLC.
Heat Trace Products, LLC. technology dates back to the early 1970’s when the company was the Samuel Moore Group. The original brand name for the cable was Dekoron. The company has endured various name and ownership changes over the past 30 years. Now a privately held company, Heat Trace Products, LLC. is presently located in Leominster, Massachusettes.
The 2700 series cable has been a mainstay in low temperature maintenance and freeze protection applications for over 30 years. This product has remained virtually unchanged due to proprietary formulations, manufacturing processes, and patents. Many customers have reported that the product is still functioning after 25 plus years. The 2700 series cable continues to be the only low temperature cable to pass the IEEE Benchmark Performance Test at 230 °F (110 °C).
The 2300 series cable was developed in the mid 1980’s as the demand for self-regulating cable grew into process maintenance applications (with steam cleaning exposure). Here again, patented processes coupled with proprietary materials has made this product the cable of choice for maintain temperatures up to and including 250 °F (121 °C).
The 2000 series cable was developed as the new century approached and the demand for even higher maintenance temperatures evolved. Applications that used to be maintained by means of superheated steam and basic resistance heating cables were now being heated with self-regulating cables. The market place was seeking a product that could maintain 375 °F (190 °C). Products of that time could maintain 300 °F (149 °C) but when the temperatures approached 370 °F (188 °C), the cables had to be de-energized. HTP product and process engineers worked together (in conjunction with customers) and created the 2000 series self-regulating heating cable. The cable was the first self-regulating cable to gain Factory Mutual approval with both a 25 and a 30 watt per foot product, and a maintain temperature of greater than 375 °F (190 °C).
