Raychem to Pentair Timeline

Why Raychem?

1. Brand of Pentair:

Pentair Industries was founded in 1966. Their main emphasis is to know their customers and anticipating the needs of the marketplace through investing in research & development, acquisition, and pairing with the leading technologies of product brands. Due to this, Pentair Industries holds a number of patents for products essential to today's industries.

2. Multiple Applications:

Raychem’s building & infrastructure solutions focus on keeping people and infrastructure protected, enhancing building performance, and bringing comfort into the home. Applications include pipe freeze protection, snow melting and de-icing, floor heating, fire-rated wiring, and sensing solutions for commercial and residential use to keep people safe from harm and enhance building performance.

3. Unique Products:

Even though Raychem developed the first self-regulating electric heat trace cable in 1973, it still remains unique today because of its ability to adjust its power output to compensate for pipe temperature changes. Raychem’s products can also be cut-to-length and can be terminated or extended on the job site, making them easy to design with, install and maintain.

4. Quality Products:

Raychem heating cables remain the industry standard in electric heat tracing. The products are sustainable, easy to install and use, and are relied upon by building investors, owners and professionals in commercial, residential and infrastructure markets around the world.

5. Innovation:

Even Heat Distribution- The even dispersion of conductive particles in the core of all Raychem brand self-regulating heating cables means uniform heat distribution internally and along the entire length of the heating cable. This uniform distribution of carbon particles prevents localized internal overheating and maximizes the life of the cable.

No Cold Spots! No Hot Spots! No Burnouts!- All Raychem brand self-regulating heating cables have good contact between the conductive core and the parallel bus wires eliminating localized hot or cold spots and premature cable failure. This prevents under heating or overheating and increases reliability.

Efficient Heat Transfer- The tight fit of the insulating jacket on all Raychem self-regulating heating cables maximizes the transfer of heat from cable to pipe, saving energy while eliminating premature aging of the cable.
