Heat Trace Connector
May 14, 2009
Heat Trace ConnectorThe Heat Trace Connector is for use in the oil and gas, and petrochemical industries. It is designed to withstand harsh outdoor environments surrounding oil pipelines and refineries, and it provides an electrically and environmentally reliable method to interconnect oil pipeline heat trace elements. It offers a substantial reduction in installation time and cost over the traditional junction box method of connections. The Heat Trace Connectors are designed for easy onsite, one-man installation under all types of conditions. The coaxial design allows for complete 360° connection, which eliminates alignment or rotational problems during installation. The innovative coil spring contact provides for a highly reliable connection, and reduces the chance of contact destruction if the connector is accidentally disconnected while under load. A unique pivot lever locking mechanism, located on the connector’s exterior, guarantees a quick and secure fit as well as superior holding power. Once the levers are fastened, they can only be disengaged with a standard screwdriver. This added feature prevents accidental disconnections, making a properly installed connector virtually fail-proof! The only tool needed to install or disconnect Weidmuller’s Heat Trace Connector is a standard flat blade screwdriver.
