Heat tracing systems prevent pipes from freezing, keep gutters and roofs snow-free, and clear snow and ice from walkways and ramps to parking lots. Pentair systems make hot water available at every tap in hotels, hospitals, and residential high-rise buildings.

Self-Regulating Technology Right Amount of Heat

Comfortable Heat-Tracing Systems

The combination of a self-regulating heating cable and smart control system allows for dynamic management of the heating cable’s power output dependent on parameters such as ambient temperature and moisture. These will help you comply with today’s building regulations on energy savings. A complete Raychem system can result in energy savings of up to 80% !


Maximum protection, optimum safety

There is an intelligent Raychem heating solution for every application. Most popular examples are:


Pipe Freeze Protection

Commercial Pipe Freeze Protection

Modular and flexible cable system for keeping pipes from freezing. This heating solution prevents ice from forming and ensures that water can keep flowing. It prevents pipes from bursting and water damage.

Roof & Gutter De-icing

Commercial Roof & Gutter De-icing

High quality and quick-to-install cable systems for keeping gutters and downspouts free from snow and ice. This heating solution prevents icicle formation and damage to gutters and ensures water can keep flowing freely.

Surface Snow Melting

Commercial Driveway De-icing

Effective and reliable heating systems for keeping driveways, stairs and footpaths free from snow and ice. This heating solution prevents physical injury and vehicle accidents, and saves time clearing snow.

Pipe Freeze Protection


Raychem's pipe freeze protection systems are flexible and easy to attach to the exterior of the pipe to keep pipes from freezing, bursting, and causing water damage.

Raychem's products work with our basic or advanced energy-saving control and sensing options.

XL-Trace Cut-to-length Heating Cable System
Commercial XL Heat Trace Cable

Self-regulating heating cable with either fluoropolymer or polyolefin outer jacket for piping of all sizes in dry and wet locations.

  • Voltage: 120 V or 208-277 V
  • Control options: Single or multi-circuit, integrated power distribution, energy monitoring, BMS communications
