MCS FURNACE CABLE

MCS Furnace Cable

HIGH-TEMPERATURE LEAD WIRE

Ratings/Approvals:

  • 700°C - 600 Volt (Optional SS Braid)
  • 1000°C - 300 Volt
  • Passes the IEEE-383 (modified) 210,000 BTU/hr Vertical Cable Tray Flame Test
  • Passes UL VW-1 Vertical Flame Test
  • Passes CSA FT1 Vertical Flame Test
  • RoHS Compliant

Construction:

  • Conductors
    • 18 AWG - 8 AWG
    • Solid or Stranded A Nickel
  • Insulating System
    • High quality reinforced mica tape
  • Conductor Covering
    • Ceramic fiber braid coated with a high temperature finish
  • (Optional) Outer Braid
    • Stainless steel (not recommended for applications exceeding 700°C)

Characteristics:

  • Superior high temperature and oxidation resistance in normal temperatures to 1000 ̊C
  • Fire resistant.
  • Very low smoke emission when burned at rated temperature.
  • Resistant to many chemicals.
  • Maintains circuit integrity even when exposed to conditions of high ambient temperature and flame.
  • Optional stainless steel braid provides mechanical protection.
  • If wire is subjected to very rapid rise in temperature, the binder
    in the construction can ignite but will quickly extinguish. The resulting white ash is non-conductive.

Applications:

  • For use in non-flexing applications
  • Wiring for ovens, kilns, and furnaces
  • Where the normal installation environment includes continuous operating temperatures up to 1000 ̊C and intermittent temperature approaching 1200 ̊C
  • Not recommended for outdoor us
