The KE Cable heating element is tension wrapped and covered with two layers of nonflammable Polyimide Film applied in reverse directions, then heat fused for moisture
protection. A stainless steel and tinned copper sheath is then added for additional protection
and electrical ground return path. The sheath is enclosed in a minimum 20 mil PFA
abrasion and chemical resistant extruded jacket.
OMEGALUX™ KE Cable is a low Watt density electrical resistance heater. It is designed for freeze
protection, viscosity and high temperature process control in Class 1, Groups B, C, and D,
Division 2 Classified Areas as well as in corrosive environments. KE is used in asphalt plants, oil
refineries, mines, chemical and petrochemical processing areas, other locations where corrosive
atmospheres can occur. KE is equally suitable for applications in severe arctic cold.
