nVent today announced that the nVent Raychem self-regulating heat tracing cable earned a place in the prestigious Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) “Milestones Program”. Invented in 1972, the self-regulating heat tracing cable maintains constant pipe temperature under harsh conditions. Today, self-regulating heat tracing cables are used in many industries and applications, including oil and gas, pipe freeze protection and snow and ice melting.

“Having our technology added into IEEE’s historic Milestones Program is a tremendous accomplishment, and we are proud to be acknowledged globally as the first manufacturer of the self-regulating heat tracing cable,” said Brad Faulconer, president of nVent thermal management: “We have always stood behind the quality and performance of our products; and having our cables be celebrated by the world’s largest professional organisation dedicated to the advancement of technology, is a great honour. This recognition also provides additional reassurance to our customers. Heat tracing technology is not just something we do; it’s a part of our DNA.”
