PDH Course - Electric Heating Cable Products

This live online engineering PDH course provides guidance on electric heating cable products, its different applications, and its advantages and limitations.

Heating cable can be used for the continuous or intermittent application of heating pipes, tanks, roof and gutter deicing, snow melting, radiant floor heat, grease trap maintenance, and more. The purpose of heat tracing is to compensate or make up for the heat loss to the surrounding atmosphere in low ambient temperature climates, which keeps pipes, roofs, or gutters from freezing, melts snow on sidewalks, or provides comfort heat for people.

This one (1) New York State Certified PDH course is applicable to process, mechanical, and electrical engineers, operations and maintenance personnel, and electrical and mechanical contractors, as well as consultants and design build contractors who construct, build and manage facilities involving heat trace systems.
