Each winter, facility maintenance professional, plumbers, and water treatment specialists face the inevitable calls for frozen pipe repair. Whether you are stocking up on supplies before cold weather hits or in need of emergency supplies, count on Duff for frozen pipe solutions.
Proactive insulation can prevent the high cost and inconvenience of repairing burst pipe.
Available in a variety of sizes and materials such as fiberglass, Zeston-type fiberglass for fittings, foam armaflex, k-flex, and fasco cell options, we have what you need to protect tubing and pipe, elbows, tees, and fittings before cold weather hits.
Featuring a self-regulating conductive core, The Raychem Frostex freeze protection cable reacts to fluctuations in temperature to protect pipes. As temperatures drop, resistance decrease and heat is generated. When temperatures increase, so does cable resistance, generating less heat. The kit features a ground-fault protect plug and an end cap and the system includes a power indication light.
Our Raychem TruckPak service carton includes 50 feet of 3-watt per foot electric heating cable, two Frostex 9800 plug kits, and one roll of 9610 application tape.
In addition to the kit, components are available individually and cable is sold per foot and in reels of 100, 250, and 500 feet.
Insulating Pipe Wrap
Simple-to-use and flexible for tight spaces and varying pipe diameter, pipe wrap is available as a self-adhesive foil and foam, as foil-backed fiberglass, and in tape form. They also reduce pipe sweating, dripping, and can reduce heat loss.
