London  - nVent Electric plc (NYSE:NVT) (“nVent”), a global leader in electrical connection and protection solutions, today introduced a new standardized design for its nVent RAYCHEM Mineral Insulated (MI) heating units. This industry-leading equipment is designed to provide superior freeze protection and process temperature maintenance for high-power, high temperature exposure (up to 1000°C) industrial heat-tracing applications. The new heating units ensure greater operational reliability and corrosion resistance in harsh environments..

Harsh environments can compromise the performance of heat-tracing systems, resulting in system failure and costly maintenance fees. With newly designed pot seal with flexible pigtails, in combination with alloy 825 cold lead cables and nickel-plated brass glands, the nVent RAYCHEM MI heating units offer maximum electrical protection against moisture, as well as superior corrosion resistance, resulting in longer service life, greater reliability and reduced total operating costs.

“Having secured a globally unified design, we are uniquely situated to leverage our R&D efforts and flexibility and availability at our MI manufacturing facilities. For our customers, this means shorter lead times – especially when it comes to major heat-tracing projects,” said Koen Verleyen, marketing manager EMEAI at nVent. “Our best-in-class product specification ensures superior reliability, reduced maintenance intervention, and increased overall life expectancy – benefits that can prove crucial in the harsh, hazardous environments in which our customers operate.”.

Efficient design and cost-effective installation
The improved design capabilities, combined with tighter manufacturing tolerances, result in lower MI sheath temperatures across the entire MI range. This may reduce the total quantity of cable runs, resulting in easier, faster installation and reduced total installation cost. nVent also introduced a new simplified MI junction box range with earth plates and M25 entries. All these product updates are included in the latest version of nVent’s heat-tracing design software, TraceCalc Pro v2.11.

Mr. Said Megassabi, product manager EMEAI at nVent, comments, “With our new global nVent RAYCHEM MI product range, we can offer our customers an improved design that drives investment and installation costs down, while providing the highest reliability to minimize their operational costs. The new range also features a 10-year extended product warranty program, offering peace of mind for industries worldwide; from oil & gas and petrochemical to power plants and food industries.”
