Eliminate time-consuming heat shrinking when terminating heating cables 

EasyHeat, a trusted Emerson brand, is helping field engineers terminate self-regulating heating cables faster, cleaner and more cost-effectively with its new low-profile quick connections kits.

Utilizing quick-setting silicone and slip on connectors, the kit completely eliminates the need for a heating gun and shrink tubing typically used for terminating heating cables. EasyHeat silicone adhesive can be cold applied and does not require any heating to cure. Once the silicone adhesive is applied, the boot connector is slipped on. Termination is finished in seconds, rather than minutes.   Two kits are available from EasyHeat: the SRME End Seal Kit is designed for terminating the ends of cables, while the SRMP Power-End Kit is for joining cables inside a power connection box. Both are constructed of durable molded silicone materials, and can be used for indoor or outdoor applications. Each kit contains materials to make five complete connections. Both kits are UL Listed and CSA Certified for use in ordinary locations.   EasyHeat self-regulating heating cables are for use in freeze protection, construction projects, and for industrial-based applications where liquids, such as petrochemicals, must be kept at a specific temperature for processing.
