CCSR Self Regulating
Frost Protection Heat Tapes
1) Before applying the heat tape, make sure the area on and
around the pipe is free and clear of sharp edges and combustible
2) Apply the heat tape to the pipe either straight or evenly
3) The heat tape should be wrapped around valves, flanges
etc., to compensate for the extra heat loss.
4) The heat tape can touch and be overlapped if necessary.
5) Secure the heat tape with PVC electrical insulating tape
at intervals of not less than 300mm.
6) Make off ends, tee's and connections using approved termination
kits and according to the instructions.
7) Insulate overall with fibreglass or similar insulating
material, suitably protected from the weather and physical
8) Make sure that the electrical connections are made in
accordance with the appropriate regulations and only by a
9) It is advisable to fit an over-riding air thermostat.
a) Never connect the heat tape when it is coiled.
b) The heat tape must be protected from physical abuse. e.g.
chewing by animals, debris thrown from lawnmowers etc.
c) CCSR is intended for frost protection and is not designed
for use on high temperature process pipes etc.
d) CCSR is not suitable for use in hazardous areas.
1) Lightly cut around heater overjacket 127mm from the
end. Bend cable to break the overjacket.
2) Lightly cut overjacket up the center between first cut
mark and the cable end. Bend cable to break the overjacket.
3) Remove overjacket from heater cable.
4) Move braid back toward the overjacket, creating a bulge.
5) At the bulge, separate the braid to make an opening.
6) While bending the heater cable, work it through the
7) Pull the braid tight.
8) Lightly cut around heater outer jacket 48mm from the
end. Bend cable to break outer jacket.
9) Lightly cut the outer jacket up the center between the
first cut mark & the cable end. Bend cable to break
10) Remove the jacket from the heater cable.
11) Shave the core material from the outside of each bus
12) Starting at the end, pull each bus wire away from the
13) Remove exposed core material.
14) Slide one 3mm diameter, 25mm length shrink tube over
each bus wire, leaving approximately 13mm of each bus wire
exposed. Shrink with heat gun until completely shrunk.
15) Slide a 13mm diameter, 51mm length shrink tube over
both pigtail leads leaving approx. 25mm of each pigtail
lead exposed. Shrink with heat gun until completely shrunk.
16) While still warm, spread bus wires and squeeze between
them using needle-nose pliers, hold for 5 seconds.
1) Strip overjacket and braid back 102mm from the end.
Slide braid back over the overjacket portion of the heater
2) Cut off excess heater cable leaving 25mm.
3) At the end of the heater cable, snip a 10mm slit between
the bus wires. Slightly spread wires apart.
4) Slide a 13mm diameter, 51mm length shrink tube over
the heater cable leaving approximately 25mm of shrink tube
past the heater cable. Shrink with heat gun until completely
5) While still warm, squeeze the entire width of shrink
tube closed. Cut off excess shrink tube.
6) Pull braid over the squeezed shrink tube, covering the
entire end seal and twist closed.
7) Fold twisted braid back and slide the 16mm diameter,
76mm length shrink tube over the braid leaving 13mm of shrink
tube past the braid. Shrink with heat gun until completely
8) While still warm, squeeze shrink tube closed. Make sure
to seal the entire width of tubing.
