Frostex water pipe freeze protection system prevents above ground exposed water pipes from freezing. The electric Frostex heat trace cable is a 3 watt per foot heat tape, that uses the #9800 Plug Kit and the #9610 application tape.
 

Frostex heat trace cable is ideal
for shorter runs of less than 50'
for water pipe freeze protection.

Electronic heat tape temperature controller to control on and off temperature points.
ELECTRONIC TEMPERATURE CONTROL for Heat Tape Temperature Control

120V Electronic Temperature Control Electronic Temperature Control unit has a temperature differential range of 1 Degree F to 30 Degrees F. Unit can control temperatures from -30F to 220F, however you will not need the range capabilities of this control for use with heat tape for on your roof or on water pipes

Thermocube Heat Tape Thermostat for controlling power to your heat tape run.
Avoid Cold Weather Problems

Thermo Cube is a device which plugs into a standard GFI protected 120V AC outlet to automatically control turning power on and off for heat tape or stock tank heaters. By plugging the device into the Thermo Cube, when the air temperature reaches 35 degrees F, the Thermo Cube will turn on the power. When the Air temperature gets up to 45 degrees F, the power will turn off. This makes your heat tape more efficient to operate, since you are not having to run the power all the time. According to the manufacturer, you can use the Thermo Cube to control heat tape or stock tank heaters that are rated up to 1800 watts maximum or 15 amps total on 120V GFI protected circuits.

TC3 is 3-1/4" wide and 1-3/8" high and 1" thick, and has place for two 3 prong plugs to plug into it.

Frostex Heat Trace Cable can be overlapped to protect a valve.

FROSTEX is a name you have come to trust for keeping exposed water lines from freezing. Frostex heat tapes are available in lengths up to 50' of heat tape. You will need to know the type of pipe you will use the Frostex heat tape on, whether plastic of metal, the diameter of the pipe, as well as the lowest expected air temperature, and the number of valves and spigots. Example would be 1" PVC pipe 23' long with one ball valve protecting for -20 degree F would require 23' x 2 = 46' + 1' for the valve area and 1' for the plug in needed.

Measure the diameter of the pipe in inches, and determine the lowest air temperature you will protect against. Under the pipe type, plastic or metal, find the size of pipe you are protecting, then go across the chart to the lowest temperature you are protecting against.

Frostex heat trace cable uses a self-regulating conductive core that reacts to changes in the temperature.
As the environment becomes colder, the heat cable resistance decreases and more heat is generated.
As the environment becomes warmer, the heating cable resistance increases and less heat is generated.
The Frostex #9800 Plug Kit is used to terminate the heating cable. The 9800 includes a specially designed ground fault protection plug, and an end seal for sealing the heat tape cable end that does not plug in.
