Self Regulating
Features
Chromalox SRM/E self-regulating
heating cable provides safe, reliable
heat tracing for process temperature
maintenance and freeze protection of
pipes, valves, tanks and similar applications. Constructed of industrial
grade 14 AWG buss wire with metal
braid and optional overjacketing,
SRM/E ensures operating integrity in
most hostile industrial environments.
The 420°F (215°C) maximum exposure
temperature rating allows steam
cleaning of process equipment with
up to 300 PSIG steam.
• Energy efficient, self-regulating
SRM/E uses less energy when less
heat is required.
• Easy to install, SRM/E can be cut to
any length (up to maximum circuit
length) in the field.
• Field splices can be performed
easily in minutes with no scrap or
wasted cold sections.
• With lower installed cost than steam
tracing, SRM/E features less maintenance expense and down time.
• SRM/E can be single overlapped
without burnout, which simplifies
heat tracing of in-line process
equipment such as valves, elbows
and pumps.
• Because SRM/E is self-regulating,
overtemperature conditions are
virtually impossible.
• Chromalox termination, splice,
tee and end seal kits reduce
installation time.
• UL listed for use on fire protection
system piping
• Industrial Grade, 14 gauge buss
wire has higher current capacity,
allowing longer circuit lengths up
to 780 feet.
• Superior matrix to buss wire
bonding ensures overall operating
integrity and performance.
• High output, 20 Watts per foot

SRM/E — Self-Regulating Medium Temperature/Enhanced Heating Cable
Construction
Twin 14 AWG Copper Buss Wires .................. Provide reliable electrical current
capability.
Semiconductive Polymer
Core Matrix ............................................................. “Self-Regulating” component of the
cable, its electrical resistance varies with
temperature. As process temperature
drops, the core’s heat output increases;
as process temperature rises, the heat
output decreases.
High Temperature
Fluoropolymer Jacket .......................................... Flame retardant, electrically insulates
the buss wires and matrix, and provides
corrosion resistance.
Metallic Braid ......................................................... Provides additional mechanical protection
in any environment, and a positive ground
path.
High Temperature
Fluoropolymer Overjacket ................................. Corrosion resistant, flame retardant
(Optional)
overjacket is highly effective in most
hostile, chemically active environments.
It also protects against abrasion and
impact damage.

Self-Regulating Medium Temperature/Enhanced Heating Cable — SRM/E
Heating Cable System Design
1. Calculate Heat Loss
Using the Chromalox Design Guide (PJ304) for Heat Tracing, calculate the heat loss of the system. To calculate the
heat loss (Watts) you will need to know pipe diameter, insulation type and thickness, minimum ambient temperature
and the pipe maintenance temperature.
2. Select Cable Rating
After calculating the heat loss in the pipe and adjusting for any application deviations, you may determine which cable
rating to choose. Using the SRM/E Thermal Output Ratings graph, select the lowest cable rating that will provide the
output required to offset the heat-loss at the desired maintenance temperature. Adjust the cable output for line voltage
if necessary. Consult output wattage at alternative voltage table on page 5.
