MI cable is fairly rigid and can be difficult to install on pipe with many bends, valves and tees. Each cable comes with a factory made 7-foot cold lead and is specifically designed for each application.
Mineral Insulated heat cable is designed with only 1 or 2 heater wires, because these wires are continuous any failure along the entire lenght of cable will completely shutdown the cable, NO Heat output. However, MI cable is extremly durable and these failures are rare.This cable is most ideally suited for high temperature applications, soap, tar, asphalt, and others where the temperature limits of Constant Wattage cable or Self-regulating cable are too low.
